Here's a bit about our identity as a church: our mission, our history, our leaders, and our networks.
"We exist to glorify God through authentic worship, loving others as our selves, and making disciples of Jesus Christ"
We make disciples through:
Worship: the way we relate to God
Enrich our prayer, worship and study of the Scriptures
Offer all that we are and have to God
Community: the way we relate to the people of God
Call and nurture congregational leaders for ministry in a changing environment
Practice love, forgiveness and hospitality that affirms our diversity and heals our brokeness
Mission: the way we relate to the world
Invite others to faith in Jesus Christ
Seek God's peace in our homes, work, neighborhoods, and the world
Holly Grove formed as a Mennonite church in 1919. God has blessed us with many faithful members, families, and leaders over the years. If you are interested in reading a brief history of the first 75 years of our church, you can do so here: A Short History of Holly Grove Mennonite Church.
Our church was instrumental in founding and growing Holly Grove Christian School, a Christ-centered private school that serves over 500 students.
