Hiss Church Celebrates 175th with Gift of Housing
BALTIMORE, MD, January 16, 2014– In celebration of their 175th Anniversary, Hiss United Methodist Church located in the Parkville neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland will be giving back to the community of Baltimore by partnering with Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake to rebuild homes in the Woodbourne-McCabe neighborhood of Baltimore.
Rev. Tim Dowell, Pastor of Hiss Church stated, “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate 175 years of faithful ministry to our community than by carrying on that tradition of giving in a big way. This project reminds us that this celebration is not about us, but about what God has done, and continues to do through us.”
In addition to seeking the community’s participation, Hiss is inviting the churches of the Baltimore-Metropolitan and surrounding Districts to participate as well. “This project is a celebration,” said Dowell, “and we would love all our neighboring churches to join the party!” Those interested in participating with Hiss in this 175th Anniversary Celebration of Service are encouraged to contact the church at 410.668.5665 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hiss Church is committed to pursuing our vision: Loving God, Loving All, Changing Lives, Join the Journey, by providing quality life changing ministry for all both in Parkville and around the world.
