Gift to the King! Christmas 2016

Dear HCPC Family and Friends,

After a time of deliberation and prayer, we have selected Agape Cumberland Presbyterian Church as our Christmas Offering recipient.  Agape CPC is a New Church Development in El Paso which is being led by Pastors Freddy and Lyvia Rincon.

This New Church Development is a work of Presbytery del Cristo, to which we also belong. These pastors have been working tirelessly with minimal funding to reach out to their primarily Spanish speaking community, so our gifts will tremendously bless their gospel efforts. Your gifts will mainly be used to help with their children’s ministry, such as:

  • The children currently have no safe outdoor area for activities. They would like to create a safe and secure area on their church property that will be equipped with a playground set and simple outdoor activities.

  • They would like to update their children’s Sunday school curriculum. Currently, there are many crafts and activities they cannot do because of a lack of funds.

  • They would like to update their children’s area with new flooring since the carpet is worn and has become a tripping hazard.

  • Any extra funding will go toward outreach efforts and replacing sound equipment for their Sunday services.

This is an incredible opportunity to bless and support a truly cross-cultural ministry in an area of El Paso that is in deep need of Jesus. We pray that you will joyfully consider giving to this special offering. Furthermore, may your gift be a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God (Philippians 4:18).

Please make checks payable to HCPC with “Christmas Offering” in the memo line (or place in the enclosed envelope). All gifts given during the Christmas Eve Communion Service will go to this special offering.

Thank you for your faith, hope, and love during this season. Merry Christmas!

In the love of Christ,
The Benevolence Committee on behalf of the Diaconate
