Since 2006, Hillcrest has gathered each year for our Global Impact Celebration (GIC), a weekend to corporately celebrate God’s work around the world and renew our commitment to the Great Commission. With powerful times of corporate worship and fascinating interaction with guest missionaries, the weekend is a time of celebration for God’s work. But GIC is also a time of commitment. As a church body, we will commit ourselves to sacrificial prayer, giving, and personal involvement in Jesus’ Great Commission. Dozens of individuals have been called to serve in both local and distant missions during GIC.
In 2021, our GIC will be held on Sunday, May 16. Guest missionary preachers will preach at both the English and Hispanic worship services. The church foyer will be filled with booth displays from our Southern Baptist entities. Our Southern Baptist heritage is the theme for this year.
Our Global Focus Offering, which promotes systematic giving, will be emphasized throughout GIC. It supports most of the mission projects at our church. Pray about your part in the Global Focus Offering and plan to join us for a wonderful weekend of celebration and commitment. God is doing great things around His world and we get to play a part!
