For 2023 our Christmas Project will have a focus on Missions & Benevolence. We will be raising funds that will be allocated to three areas:
Our financial goal remains the same as last year at $25,000. Here is the breakdown:
50% of funds will go to support International Missions
25% will go to Local Missions, and
25% to HPAC's Benevolence Ministry
Along with reaching our goal, we will also be collecting food items & winter coats for a food pantry & coat closet. These items can be brought to the church during office hours or on Sunday mornings. We'll be putting together stockings again as well, and delivering cards to our neighbours. More details are found below for the activities we'll be participating in as a church family.
