The "Lifetime of Joy" baby pantry, hosted by Hollywood Church, was established to help families with young children (3 and under) to receive items needed to help create happier, healthier, joy-filled homes!  Our community is so Blessed to have organizations such as The Carolina Pregnancy Center, the WIC Department, Motherhood & Breast Feeding Support at Vidant, and other organizations that help with early parenthood.  You may have heard the statement that the church is "Pro-life" It is Hollywood's initiative to be "Pro-lifetime"  The Baby Pantry and Motherhood Support Initiative is a community resource for Mother's (and father's) who make the decision to keep their baby! Those of you who have children know that parents need support and encouragement, especially in the early years!

M.O.M.S. - "Mothers of Many Seasons"
In January of 2018, Hollywood Church introduced a "Mothers of Many Seasons" group to the community of Greenville.  The mission of the M.O.M.S. ministry is for it to be an outreach designed to meet the growing needs of women by maturing their faith and by helping them to love their husbands and raise their children in the ways of the Lord. Women of all seasons of life, some young, some more experienced, are invited to come for light refreshments, fellowship, discussion, and a devotional every 3rd Saturday of the month.  Essentially, the hope is for this Ministry to become a "Moms helping Moms" community and resource.  Older, more experienced moms are encouraged to take on leadership roles and to help nurture and support moms to are just starting out!  If you are interested in volunteering in this Ministry by taking on a leadership role please, email Rochelle at hollywoodmoms5103@gmail.com
 
current needs: monetary donations for activities and supplies, volunteers to take on leadership roles, guest speakers and devotional leaders

"God Loves the Arts" Camp 
In June of 2017, Hollywood Church held it's first "God Loves the Arts" camp for children ages 4-10!  The staff and members of Hollywood have a strong passion for the Arts and feel like Music, Drama, and Art are some of God's most beautiful creations!  This past year our Theme was about God's creations!  Children from the community enjoyed a morning of activities switching from music, art, and drama from station to station.  They had the opportunity to play African drums, paint with watercolor, make pottery. make musical instruments and express themselves through drama activities all while learning God's word!  If you would like to keep updated about when the next camp will be and what activities we have coming up for children please, join our email list to receive the monthly newsletter and notifications for upcoming events! For more information on our next "God Loves the Arts" Camp and how you can get involved please, contact our Youth Director, Amanda, at faithfullygo@gmail.com. Please, check back in the spring for more information about God Loves the Arts Camp summer 2019!

Choral Scholar Initiative
The Music Ministry at Hollywood provides a scholarship to collegiate music majors in Pitt County who participate and provide leadership within the adult choir. Student's are required to attend Wednesday evening rehearsals and Sunday morning worship services.  They are also encouraged, but, not required to, participate in other areas of the Music Ministry and within the church.  The hope of the Choral Scholar Initiative is to not only bless these students with an opportunity to work in their field but, also to share God's word with them in hopes of bridging the generational gap! By sharing the Gospel and the heart of Christ we pray that these students will go out into the world and become a light in their community!
