Every hero will eventually let us down. In this series, we'll look at three heroes of the Bible. We'll discover their strengths and weaknesses and learn how Jesus Christ succeeded where they failed.

Snow Patrol

Each winter we are responsible to keep the church's entryways and the sidewalks around the perimeter of our property clear of snow and ice. We depend on volunteers for this critical ministry that keeps our neighbors safe. Training on our snowblower can be provided! If you would like to sign up to be responsible for a day or a week at a time, please contact Heather Notske at 509-385-0627 or heathern@hamblenpres.org

Office Volunteers Needed 

Are you interested in helping out in the office on a weekly or as-needed basis? We are looking for a few people who would be willing to:

  • Answer the phones for an hour or two at a time
  • Help with occasional mailings
  • Shop for kitchen supplies once a month
  • Straighten up the pew racks in the sanctuary once a week

If you would be interested in helping in any of these ways, contact Heather Notske at 509-385-0627 or heathern@hamblenpres.org.

Sponsor an Advent Poinsettia!

Every Advent season we decorate our sanctuary with poinsettias. If you would like to purchase one in honor or memory of a loved one, envelopes are available at the information center. A bulletin insert will be made listing your gift. Cost is $15.

Toy Store Time

Liberty Park Community Development Center

It’s that time again! The yearly Toy Store takes place on December 9. Between now and then, we need toys. The ‘wish list’ can be found at bit.ly/LibertyParkToyStore. Choose what you’d like to purchase, then drop off the toys in the church foyer. We can take donations until December 6. Don’t want to shop, but still want to support this ministry? Your monetary gifts will help us fill in the gaps on the ‘wish list’.

Please keep in mind that Neighborhood Outreach is a donation driven fund. There is no budget set aside for the ways in which we provide for the Liberty Park Community Development Center, or any of our projects. We can only support the Toy Store as much as you support us. To continue making a difference, we need your support. Merry Christmas!

Please Return Your Estimate of Giving Card

You should have received a letter from our stewardship committee that includes a card for you to fill out with an "estimate of giving" for 2024. We are in the process of building our budget and we hope that you will consider supporting our mission financially in the upcoming year.

To return your card: mail in the enclosed envelope, put it in the offering plate during worship, or bring it directly to Heather in the church office. Additional copies are available on the information table in the church entry. If you prefer to use an electronic version, you will find that at bit.ly/HPPC2024EstimateOfGiving. You may also call or email Heather directly at 509-385-0627 or heathern@hamblenpres.org.
