Last fall we began in-depth efforts to grow and rebuild our beloved church. With the help of Leighton Ford
Ministries, a church wide survey was conducted in October and focus group interviews were held with 24 active members in November.

In January and February, the leadership of HPPC will be engaging over the next few months in planning retreats to pinpoint key areas of priority, exploring key issues related to our worship, ministry, outreach, education, membership, building and staff to create a comprehensive plan for HPPC.

How can we all best help?
By Committing to Pray!
How often?  TWICE A DAY.
WHEN?  At 8:28 am and 8:28 pm

Why such an odd time?  Praying at the same time, twice a day, will help us get into a predictable habit. We have chosen this specific time to unite all of us with the promise of Romans 8:28 which proclaims …
“We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to His purpose.”
We believe that we are called by God here at HPPC and we desire to see His will and purposes fleshed out here at HPPC. Join us. Pray twice a day at 8:28!!
