HNC What We Do


Hands in the Community (HNC) is a ministry that was formed because of the community’s desire to be proactive in the lives of the needy and despairing in our community. We believe Christ alone can shine hope into those lives. Who better to carry that light, but the believer? Matt 5:16 says, “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in Heaven.”
