Hartford City Mission
Hartford City Mission exists to transform the community of North Hartford through sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. They develop disciples who are devoted followers of Christ and connect Christians from a wide array of geographic, economic and diverse backgrounds.
HCM operates summer and after school programs for children from first through eighth grade at several neighborhood churches and their Vine St. house. They provide homework help, biblical based character development and social emotional support.
What I have observed during the times I have visited their programming was joy! Students who were engaged in positive relationships with their peers and leaders. These kids knew their inherent value as children of the King and are growing in its development. They are memorizing scripture and able to recite it, they play hard and have a lot of fun. Fun, which I couldn’t help but get, caught up in myself. They are building leaders from the inside out who are restoring what’s been lost in this community and reclaiming this soil to be one of breakthrough, abundance and vitality. We continue to speak life over North Hartford.
There are several opportunities to serve Hartford City Mission, either on an ongoing basis or occasional, such as their upcoming Christmas Store. Please see the flyers at the information center or visit www.hartfordcitymission.org
