Indeed, Hello World!
This is our new space on the web to let you know what is happening with FUMC Out Of The Box. This is not to be confused with “FUMC Downtown Out Of The Box” Youth and at the same time, the two are not to be separated.
Are you confused?
Let me explain. First United Methodist Church Hillsville has entered a new adventure in ministry. The Senior Pastor (Ty Harrison) will remain the pastor of First UMC Hillsville and he will oversee the ministries at FUMC Out of the Box, our second location. I (Ronnie G Collins) will be the pastor of FUMC Out of the Box. I will also continue my work with FUMC Downtown Out of the Box Youth which is located at 522 Main Street Hillsville. The OOTB Youth Ministry has played a big role in the creation of this multi-site congregation. There have been numerous youth who have come through our doors who have no church background and they have not been folded into our worship services at FUMC Hillsville. This new site will bring a new opportunity for youth and their families as well as all ages to worship in a non traditional way.
We will be One church in two locations.
This has been birthed out of the church’s vision to reach out to people in our community and surrounding area that are either un-churched or have no experience with church at all. It will be a place where everyone is welcome and it is come as you are. There is no dress code, even the pastor will be dressed casual.
I will share details as they emerge in planning, but I will say this is going to be a worship experience that will be different from the traditional church experience. The message of the Gospel has never and will never change but the method by which we share the gospel has to change.
The church has made the move to start this new worship site and we plan to launch with a morning worship service later this year. Details coming…
We will use this blog to update you on our progress. It will be updated once a week, two times at the most. The typical day or days we will update will be Monday and Wednesday’s. Please feel free to grab the RSS Feed or sign up to be notified of updates by e-mail.
We hope you will interact with us, we hope you will tell your friends about us, and we hope that you will come and worship with us, soon.
