About the CHURCH

HPCC is a great example of a blended church, made up of people from many denominations
who are united in their belief in the sovereignty of God, His inerrant Word and their obligation
and privilege to serve Him. Volunteers power our many established ministries that include a
once a week after school Bible Club for K-5, Jump Start for Middle School and Walk with God
for High School, both men’s and women’s Bible studies, a food pantry, a marriage
ministry, and multiple other committees that provide for many of the day-to-day needs of our
members and our community.

A large fellowship hall and gymnasium see almost daily use and our annual fundraiser for
missions attracts attendees from all over the state. We are blessed to have a tech team that
keeps us connected on social media via Facebook and YouTube and handle all aspects of our
online presence. Worship service is streamed online.

As a farming community, we believe in helping our neighbors, locally and through missions. We
do our best to love on and welcome all and are prayerfully seeking the person God has chosen
to be our next pastor.

Close proximity to Columbia, Jefferson City and Fulton affords many higher education
opportunities, including the University of Missouri, Stephens College, William Woods and
Westminster. Kansas City, St. Louis, the Lake of the Ozarks and Branson are also close enough
to offer lots of recreation and cultural events.
