Go into the world equipped to serve.
At Chapel Hills, our Mission/Outreach programs are very important to us and we believe in trying to make a difference through both gifts of financial and hands-on support. We also encourage the organizations we partner with to share their stories with us and create opportunities for our members to participate in special focus areas.
House of Charity is a Minneapolis based organization dedicated to caring for those struggling with mental and chemical issues, homelessness and job application skills. Their Missions Statement “our mission is to feed those in need, house those experiencing homelessness and empower individuals to achieve independence”
Chapel Hills provides support for their Food programs. We assist with free meals on 10-16 weekends per year, 2 times a year we prepare 300+ sandwiches for distribution to the homeless and provide some financial support. A relationship of over 20 years.
Chapel Hills has been an active partner with VEAP for several decades both financially and through a variety of programs and projects. Food donations are collected and delivered to VEAP on a monthly basis and Chapel Hills annually participates in the Back to School Supply program and Spring Food drive.
Chapel Hills supports the UCC Disaster Relief Ministries to assist
those both nationally and internationally facing severe needs due to various disasters. The congregation has put together school supply kits and disaster clean up kits along with financial support.
This fall we are putting together Clean Up Buckets
to send to the clean-up efforts for Hurricane Dorian.
The success and sustainability of the United Church of Christ's national ministries relies on church contributions to help sustain basic operating support and missions. Being 5 for 5 means that Chapel Hills is providing support to Our Church’s Wider Mission and the Special Mission offerings: One Great Hour of Sharing, Strengthen the Church, Neighbors in Need and The Christmas Fund.
