HRC’s Call to Missions

“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnessess both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the Ends of the Earth.”     Acts 1:8

Serving Christ in Hopewell Junction , New York State and the United States, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and South America  and the World is central to who we are. We recognize that Jesus Christ did not want us to be “just another group,” but to bring his love to a world in need. The mission program at Hopewell Reformed Church is designed to provide opportunities for people to use their gifts of time, abilities and money to support Christian work at home and around the world as that person learns to be a “missionary” in his or her own back yard.

HRC wants to encourage its members to participate in mission work. Where appropriate, the church will provide some financial aid. (click link to download form)
