“Whatever you do for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you do for me.” Matthew 25:40 NIV
As followers of Jesus Christ, we have been given the task to care for our brothers and sisters in Christ – to be the hands and feet of Christ to those who are hungry, sick, poor, or in crisis.  This service brings blessings to those being served, and glory to God. As a church, Harbor of Joy is passionate to help several missions, both locally and globally.  More information on these missions are available at the Mission Center at HOJ.
