The mission of the Heritage Hill Outreach Mission (HHOM) is to glorify God by witnessing to our neighborhood through our words, actions, and resources.
In March of 2002 we began renting a building near our church to establish an informal neighborhood presence. This is the location of our Clothes Closet, where each article of clothing is sold for 50 cents. We have a small section for various books, Bibles, tracts, and other literature appropriate for neighborhood families. Volunteers from our church staff this “store front” on a regular schedule. Free coffee and cookies are available to our visitors to create a warm, friendly atmosphere. Volunteers offer a listening ear to visitor’s needs and show Christian love and support. Those in need of further spiritual counseling are encouraged to meet with a consistory-approved counselor.
