Give to Make a Difference

Put Your Compassion into Action, Change Lives

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

As you can imagine, we’ve had some major challenges this year at Hinton, but what’s been so amazing is how we’ve also seen God’s faithfulness at work in all of it, “for good.” Hinton’s friends and neighbors have played a significant role in helping Hinton, supporting our ministries as we love and help neighbors in need, serve our community, and call and equip clergy, congregations, and others to participate in God’s good work.

Now you have a specific opportunity to let us know how you’d like to be part of that ongoing “good work.” There are a variety of ways, including through your prayers, your service, your stays at Hinton, and through your financial gifts. Would you be willing to help Hinton right now by doing three simple things?

  • Watch the brief video on this page of Alexis, one of our college summer staffers. Hear how the pandemic impacted her 2020 summer experience in transformative ways.
  • Complete a short, online Response Form, letting us know how you’ll support Hinton with your prayers, volunteer service, and/or financial gift. Click HERE .

Please reply by December 1. We look forward to hearing from you and experiencing God’s continued goodness and faithfulness in the compassion and generosity of Hinton’s friends and supporters.
