As a church family, we commit ourselves to share the responsibility of providing Christian nurturing to you and your children.

II Timothy 3:15

MISSION

Mission Prayer Moment – Mission Dignity

Hoffmantown financially supports Mission Dignity, helping retired Southern Baptist ministers, workers and their widows. These are men and women who have faithfully served God’s people and now find themselves struggling to meet even basic needs. Many served small, rural churches that paid only modest salaries and couldn’t afford to contribute to their pastors’ retirement. You can contact them at missiondignity.org.

 

Angel Tree

Angel Tree is a ministry of Prison Fellowship that strives to provide children with a parent(s) in prison with a special Christmas gift. In addition to a gift, they also provide tools for the child to learn about Jesus and the Gospel. This year, the event will be through online donations only. To keep both you and the kids safe this season, Angel Tree staff will take care of all gift purchasing and delivering through your online giving. While this looks different than years past, the need for the kids is higher than ever before! Please help us in providing our New Mexico children with a gift this Christmas! To support a child assigned to Hoffmantown Church, go to hoffmantownchurch.org/angeltree and follow the instructions.
