Ministry News

Village of Hope Haiti

Our Medical Team who traveled to Haiti in February brought back the disturbing news that infants and mothers were starving from lack of nutritious food.  The Village of Hope Health Center offers a Nutrition Program which can save these infants and moms.  However, the program is extremely underfunded.  Our Pastors and Medical Team members appealed to us, the congregation and friends of HSLC, to help alleviate this problem with our financial support.  And, you came to the rescue with an overwhelming response.  By combining our Lenten offering with your individual donations, to date, we have raised $22,612.00.  This is amazing!!!  Countless additional lives will be saved by the expansion of the Nutrition Program.  Your love, care, and generosity have enabled this to happen.   Thank you and thanks be to God!

NCAA Tournament Bracket for Village of Hope Infant Nutrition Fundraiser... $350 was raised for infant nutrition in Haiti through this fun expression of being God's church. Congratulations to 1st place Sunday morning guitarist extraordinaire, Peter Randolph and  2nd place, Tom Patri, your church council president. Well done fellas.
