Resolve to Get Involved

Bishop John and Elain Hopkins

It’s a New Year but for thousands of families across the East Ohio Conference the need for support and shelter did not disappear when the ball dropped in Time Square on December 31.

As you think about making changes in your life in 2015, consider becoming involved in one of the many community and social service ministries taking place across our conference. 

In 2015, resolve to get involved in life-changing ministry.
