Community Garden

Originaly Posted on December 10, 2013

As committed member of our local community, the Hollywood Adventist Church encourages our neighbors to grow nutritious and healthy food. To support this commitment, we operate a community garden on our church property.

Instead of growing all the food ourselves, we’ve opened the garden to be truly a community garden. For a small fee community members are able to rent a garden plot to grow fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers.

This last summer the garden yielded a bountiful harvest and hosted many events. This coming season we plan to again rent out plots to members of the community. Stay tuned for info on how to get your own garden plot.

Apocalypse 2013!

Originaly Posted on July 8, 2013

Screen Shot 2013-07-08 at 9.42.37 PM

This July brings us our yearly Apocalypse sermon series. Despite what some movies might have you think, “apocalypse” actually means revealing or revelation (not the end of the world). Members of our congregation take turns looking closely at popular culture to reveal God’s presence there.

The first sermon in this series is on the film Man of Steel preached by Eugene Abano. Watch the video online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_4L9K7m8ww

Bathroom Renovations

Originaly Posted on July 8, 2013

We’re excited to renovate our church home over the next month. You’ll see some minor changes to our sanctuary and major changes to our restrooms! During the construction process, the downstairs restrooms will be closed but the outdoor restrooms are open (near the Fellowship Hall). Our new tenant, Ecclesia, is sharing the cost with us, but we still need to commit our own funds to this long-overdue project. If you can contribute to the remodeling, please note your donation on the Building Improvement line of your tithe envelope.

Here are some photos of Before and In Progress for the men’s bathroom:

Seventh-Gay Adventists Screening at Hollywood

Originaly Posted on January 8, 2013

Seventh-Gay Adventists: a film about faith on the margins

Join us on Saturday evening, February 16 from 7–10 p.m. for a screening of the new film, Seventh-Gay Adventists: a film about faith on the margins. The filmmakers, Daneen Akers and Stephen Eyer will be on hand to answer questions in a discussion moderated by Pastor Ryan Bell.

This film follows the stories of three gay and lesbian Adventists as they struggle to be true to themselves and their faith.The film is set in the context of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the fastest growing denomination in the United States, but the film’s themes of belonging, identity, and wrestling to know who you are and how you relate to your faith has been resonating with viewers around the country who can’t tell their Adventists from their Mormons. This intersection of faith and sexuality is at the core of many conversations political, religious, and family conversations today, and this film offers viewers the opportunity to experience the spiritual journey of a gay person of faith.

For more information please visit the web site at www.sgamovie.com.
