For the entire law is fulfilled in this one command: "Love your neighbor as yourself." Galatians 5:14
As followers of Jesus, we seek to live out his instructions to us and to be his hands and feet in the world.
Below are some of the ways we have found to reach out and serve
WINTER CLOTHING DRIVE
Our friends from the Rescue Mission of Trenton are asking for gently used winter clothes, shoes, and accessories to help our neighbors keep warm through the cold winter months. If you have any to offer, please put in clean plastic bags and leave in the large box set up in the narthex. Thank you!
CROP WALK Hunger Walks are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by local congregations or groups to raise funds to end hunger at home and around the world. CWS is an ecumenical and global organization whose mission is: Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, heal the sick, comfort the aged, shelter the homeless. HPC members will be once again be walking.

Currently, they are most in need of:
LAUNDRY DETERGENT, DISH DETERGENT, DEODORANTS, KETCHUP, MUSTARD, PASTA, and ASSORTED CANNED BEANS
If you are able to donate any items, please place them in the collection box in the rear of the sanctuary any time.

Prayer Garden/Outdoor Sanctuary
We have a secluded woodland prayer garden available to church members as well as for use by the public. If you are looking for a place of beauty and solace where you can sit for awhile, pray, and feel closer to God, stop by our prayer garden.
To enter the garden, walk through the arbor to the right of the front of the church building.
Hillsborough Community Garden
Hillsborough Presbyterian Church is both sponsor and host to the Hillsborough Community Garden.
Opened in May 2013, the garden was created out of a desire to better steward the land we were blessed with, serve our community, and celebrate God's creation.
The garden serves Hillsborough residents and neighbors interested in the outdoors, gardening, and growing fresh healthy food. The garden also serves the Hillsborough food bank by growing produce for neighbors in need in 4 communal plots known as "Carolyn's Share."
For more information on the Hillsborough Community Garden, visit their website:
www.hillsboroughcommunitygarden.org or their facebook page.
The garden is full for the 2017 season. We should have a few spaces for the 2018 season. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the waiting list for 2018.
