World Communion Sunday was celebrated with a Festival of Nations by Hillcrest United Methodist Church, along with four congregations and a nonprofit organization.
The various groups represent many cultures from four continents and speak more than five languages. All of them utilize the Hillcrest United Methodist Church facility each week.
“Each one of these ministries is doing amazing work and is really allowing all of us to be part of something greater than what we could do individually,” said the Rev. David Ssebulime, lead pastor of Hillcrest United Methodist Church. “We have not yet seen or even imagined what is possible when we unite God’s people. … We believe that God has brought us together under the same roof for a greater purpose.”
The congregations plan to continue supporting each other and strengthening their ministry partnerships. Each pastor expressed the same belief: God’s love unites us.
