What does it mean to be Christ’s presence in this community? How do we live lives of “withness”? At Hollywood Adventist Church we do our best to be with each other just as Christ is God with us. We’re a community of God’s people, befriending each other and the city.
We celebrate our friendships with each other by eating, hiking, supporting the local coffee shops, talking about God, hitting the beach, taking in a concert, studying scripture, listening to each other, and walking the neighborhood… (it’s even been rumored that we dance a little bit here and there!). As a church that knows how to work hard, we also believe that it is Godly to play hard, too.
