Helping Hands Outreach
Reaching out with hearts of love in times of joy and hours of need
– connecting lives of all ages.
God’s amazing grace through Christ Jesus calls us to respond with love for others as individuals and as
a community of faith. The Helping Hands Outreach's purpose is to build connections among PoP members by providing assistance for aging challenges and those who are experiencing a time of special need in the following ways (contact one of the leaders below for more information or requests):
