The Hillcrest Bruce Mission is an outreach of the United Methodist Church serving the Pollard Community of Ashland KY.


Our mission is to embrace, encourage, empower and equip the neighbors we serve through the love and healing grace of Jesus Christ. We assist with their well being by meeting their needs, and add value to their lives by ministering peace and demonstrating God’s love. We serve our neighbors, 70% of which reside in single parent households, from the Hillcrest and Bruce Apartments. The average income for apartment residents is less than $7,000 per year.



Matthew 25:35-40


35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

  37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
