Help us continue to give beyond our walls

Give to HPUMC Outreach

God has called us to go beyond our walls and through generous donations of members, HPUMC has invested in four organizations across the continent in Africa.

Our hope is to continue to go deeper with these organizations to make a lasting impact on the lives of those they help.
