From our earliest days when we were organized in 1992, Hodges Boulevard Presbyterian Church has been hands and feet for Christ responding to the needs in our local community, local and international disasters as well as international missions. It has become an essential part of who we are as a community of faith – helping those less fortunate and opening our doors to those in need.
The Outreach Mission Team finds local missions where a large population of church members can participate. Over 70 members, children and adults, filled 20,000 meal packages for Hunger Fight in 2017. This is an increase from 10,000 meal packaged in 2016.
There are also core groups of members that participate at local missions around the area and are always looking for new people to join them:
Beaches Habitat for Humanity
Different Saturdays throughout the Year (TBA)
Beaches Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit ecumenical Christian housing ministry dedicated to eliminating substandard housing in the Jacksonville Beaches area. Volunteers need to be able to follow instructions and have some skill in using different building tools.
Overseas Mission Trips
16 (With Guardian) and Older
Every two years we partner with a wonderful mission group called El Porvenir in Nicaragua. We will do one of four things: plant trees for reforestation, build latrines, dig wells for clean water, or build stoves. Excellent experience for singles,couples or entire families. Financial aid will be available for those who need it.
