During the years in which the doors have been open at this interdenominational student outreach, thousands of young people have experienced the joy and blessings of knowing Jesus as Savior and Lord.
In Matthew 7:24-27, Jesus tells a story about the need for a firm foundation. A building’s structural integrity depends upon the materials that are used and the type of foundation it is built upon. In the same way, we need to be very careful what foundation we lay for our spiritual work, and to take heed how we are building. Jesus instructed His followers to make sure that they not only heard His words, but put them into practice. If they did, He said they would be like a wise man that had laid his foundation on a rock.
At Harrisburg Christian Performing Arts Center, we build on the firm foundation of Christ to impact the students who come through our doors each day. Our activities begin and end with prayer, and we work hard to ensure our students find role models, teachers, and prayer partners that love them as they are and encourage them to find refuge in Jesus Christ.
Theater education is a powerful tool in the lives of young people. It is empowering, encouraging, and sometimes humbling. It can build self-esteem, teach teamwork, and create leaders. By building our work on the foundation of Christ, we seek to build Christians that take those skills out into the world and impact others for Christ in their everyday lives.
With the Build Our Future Campaign, we seek to raise $50,000 to help bolster the ministry at HCPAC through our parent, participant, and alumni supporters. We can no longer rely solely on our theater performances to generate income to carry this ministry through, but need ongoing support throughout the year to keep the lights on and the doors open so Christ can be at work in our building.
Won’t you stand with us and support the work of Christ through the ministry of HCPAC today? Your gift of $50 will help us to build on our solid foundation, and fulfill our promise to continue making Christ known back-stage, on-stage, and off-stage. Make your gift now.
