It is with pleasure for the Love in Action Team to announce our decision to send our portion of the Peace and Global Witness offering (25%) to Resilience 1220.  Their licensed therapists provide free counseling services to youth ages 12-20 in the mountain communities west of Denver.  They raise awareness of the social, emotional, and mental-health issues young people face, and to provide the necessary life skills to create wellness and resiliency in their lives.
If you would like to participate in the Peace and Global Witness offering, please send your donation to Church of the Hills before November 1, 2020.  Please write the check to COTH but put Peace and Global Witness in the memo section.
It is that time again! Time to pack an Operation Christmas Child shoebox — but this time, pandemic style!  This year, you can build a shoebox in person or online. 
OCC has a new feature: Pack a shoebox online!  Shoeboxes made online are a flat fee of $25; that includes shipping and plenty of toys and other items!  Shoebox items selected online help make sure these shoeboxes are better for sending for difficult-to-reach communities.  Ashley Snyder has created an online goal page for COTH.  Please consider building a shoebox online (using the COTH goal page).  If you build a shoebox online, be sure to use the following link so your shoebox can count toward our church’s goal: 
If you would like physical shoeboxes, we have cardboard and a limited supply of plastic shoeboxes.  Please contact Ashley or Jennie Snyder directly or by contacting the church office to get in touch, and we will coordinate dropping off your boxes directly to you or at the church.  Some empty boxes will be available near the Mission table in the narthex as well.  Once your shoeboxes are filled, please drop them off at Ascent Church (29823 Troutdale Scenic Drive) during National Collection Week between November 16 to 23; they are having a contactless curbside drop off this year.  Be sure to mention that your shoeboxes are with Church of the Hills!!! (And if you do not mind, let us know how many you filled too!)  If you cannot drop off your shoeboxes at Ascent Church that week, please drop them off next to the Mission table at COTH for pick up by November 15.
