Food Pantry Needs

October through December are the months that Hope Valley is assigned to provide food for the Triangle West Baptist Network (formerly Yates Baptist Association) Food Pantry. Everyone is encouraged to pick up a few grocery items for this needed ministry.
There are lists of needs on the bulletin boards and in the most recent newsletter. We have brown bins in the vestibule & children’s hallway for you to place your donations in. You can also bring them by the church office. Thanks for your support!
Items Needed:
Peanut Butter
Instant Potatoes
Mac & Cheese
Canned Meats
Canned Fruits
Canned Vegetables

Christmas Card Exchange for Missions

As we get closer to Christmas, it’s time to start writing Christmas Cards! We will again be hosting a church-wide Christmas Card Exchange as a fundraiser for Missions. The sorting box will be placed next to the Hospitality Room at the end of November. Please drop off and collect your cards at any time until the Christmas Eve service. Cards for members who are not able to collect their own will be delivered, either via mail or personally depending on their location. A collection box will be placed with the card box. A donation of 25 cents per card is requested. Please make checks payable to HVBC with Missions in the memo line.
