Missions Goal

To prayerfully and financially support missions and missionaries around the world who proclaim God’s love to all peoples; the poor, the hungry, the homeless and victims of disasters.

 

We believe that Missions means more than just financial support.  We have members who regularly give their time at the Oregon Food Bank sorting food for distribution; serving at the homeless shelters; working in our HPC garden to provide fresh produce for the Food Bank; working at the Habitat for Humanity days to build homes; just to name some of them.

 

HPC tithes 10% of undesignated income to Missions.  There are also various fund raisers throughout the year for specific causes.  These include:

·       4 Presbytery special offerings: One Great Hour of Sharing, Pentecost, Peace & Global Witness, and Christmas Joy

·       Craft Fair (for Village of Hope in Uganda)

·       Garage Sale held every other year (for Oregon Food Bank)

·       Tables of Christmas Giving (food, toys and money)
