The Joy Gallery Glass

Since 2012, The JOY Gallery has been one of HCPC’s services to Homewood by celebrating local artists. Curators Tom Dameron and Maud Coirier-Belser are themselves respected local artists who work together in all areas of production. The gallery is free to the public and asks for only a 10% donation instead of a commission (most galleries charge 30%-50%). In addition to rotating shows, HCPC also proudly displays work donated by emerging and established artists in the Education Center. For more information, see The JOY Gallery’s website. The gallery is featuring art by Becky Laurent and Marleen Bodden until February 3, 2019.

Ministry Teams

If you are interested in serving on a ministry team, contact us, the leader of one of the teams below, or one of our pastors

Ministry teams are vital to HCPC’s witness as a church. They have called meetings as needed.

CARE TEAMThe CARE Team helps us to “Serve Christ” and “Grow in Christ.” This team ministers to and provides for members of our community in need. They write cards, oversee benevolence giving, make phone calls, plan visits, and organize food delivery for those who are sick or undergoing major life changes. They also communicate any pastoral concerns or requests to church leaders.

COMMUNICATIONS & WORSHIP:  The Communications & Worship Team helps us to “Worship in Christ” and “Serve Christ.” Communications & Worship takes care of all communications of activities of HCPC and makes sure our services of worship are faithfully prepared. This team ensures flowers are arranged, the sanctuary is decorated, and communion is prepared. This team also coordinates our Summer Concert Series and works with the pastor to plan special services. Creating the bulletin boards around the church also falls under this team.

DISCIPLING & MEMBERSHIP: The Discipling & Membership Team helps us to “Grow in Christ.” This team makes sure our Sunday school classes, Bible studies, and VBS have the faithful leaders they need to be successful. Other responsibilities include overseeing curriculum and creating new opportunities for small groups and classes at HCPC.

MISSIONS & FELLOWSHIP: The Missions & Fellowship Team helps us to “Grow in Christ” and “Serve Christ.” The Mission and Fellowship team coordinates all our fellowship and outreach activities including monthly fellowship meals, the Labor Day BBQ, and other special events. This team also coordinates outreach to our community and world through projects and collections for ministry.

PROPERTY: The Property Team helps us in every aspect of our mission: “Worship Christ. Grow in Christ. Serve Christ.” The Property team coordinates all the activities that impact caring for the church building and grounds. This team makes sure everything functions properly, including making sure the buildings are cleaned.
