    Freezing Nights

    Freezing Nights is a ministry to help feed, clothe and house homeless adults in Puyallup/South Hill. It is a cooperative effort of 12 local churches who pool resources, volunteers and shelter locations 7:00pm-7:00am, 7 days per week from November through March. In addition to physical needs, guests are offered referral resources such as mental health care, medical care, veteran's services, and housing options. They receive spiritual ministry and guidance, as well as Christian love and respect in a safe, stable place.

    Pope Elementary

    High Pointe is proud to partner with Pope Elementary School to assist with food needs for children at food risk and to provide tutors for children struggling with reading. Tutoring is organized through Puyallup School District's Communities in Schools, Good Samaritan Readers Program. High Pointe volunteers receive training in the fall and tutor October through June. Weekly tutoring sessions require a one hour commitment. Education is often the way out of poverty and, without education, the cycle of poverty will almost certainly continue. By helping secure the foundations of reading for these children, tutors break down significant barriers to a better future.

    Food Bank & Armory

    A key community resource, the Food Bank serves over 850 people per month. Donate directly, participate in High Pointe’s bi-annual matching food drive or volunteer at the Food Bank. How you can help: Volunteer your time to sort food -- this is a fun way to spend an evening. Donate directly by bringing canned and dry food items on Sunday mornings. To contact the food bank directly, call Julie at 253.846.3808

     

    High Pointe partners with Saint Francis House in downtown Puyallup to provide meals for homeless and hungry people. The meals are served at the National Guard Armory. We are responsible for a meal every other month. How you can help: Groups provide and serve the food. Set up begins at 5:30pm and the meal is served at 6:00pm.

    Guatemala

    High Pointe has been sending teams to Guatemala since 2003. We partner with The Good Shepherd Church in Santiago Atitlan and their mission church in the nearby village of Cerro De Oro. Teams build houses for impoverished families, offer Christian leadership training in the public schools, encourage village women with a Women's Ministry afternoon, distribute medical kits and visit and pray with families who have previously received houses. We share the gospel with words, loving actions, and practical assistance. In addition, we partner with the community to provide high efficiency cooking stoves to improve health and lessen the workload for women and girls.

    Ethiopia

    Dr. Chris Bernard and Dr. Mary Bernard- High Pointe is proud to support missionaries Dr. Chris Bernard and Dr. Mary Bernard in their ministry in Ethiopia. Chris teaches philosophy and theology at the university level in the capital, Addis Ababa. Mary is the Chief Medical Officer of the CURE Hospital, which performs free life-changing surgeries for children with disabilities, such as club feet, cleft palate, muscle contractures from burns and other serious conditions.

    Shire New Word of Life Church- Through Fellowship Church, High Pointe has also gotten to know and partner with New Word of Life Church in the town of Shire, which is in northern Ethiopia. Pastor Temesgen Gebrihewet planted this church in an area that can be hostile to the gospel and the evangelical church often faces persecution there.

     

    South Africa

    High Pointe has been partnering with ministries in South Africa since 2008. We work with Pastor Dumisani Mzameko in his ongoing efforts to fight the AIDS Pandemic in South Africa, minister to those infected with HIV and AIDS and reach out to the displaced and impoverished. Our teams work alongside Pastor Dumisani in feeding programs for children in the township of Gamalahke, as well as his evangelistic ministry to rural farm workers, an AIDS hospice, prison ministry, tribal and youth leadership programs.

  • Men & Women

    Men

    As men we tend to run from any dependence on others and instead try to fight our own battles in our own strength.

    At High Pointe, we seek to help you become a healthy follower of Jesus. We do this primarily through individual care in small groups. Small groups are made up of regular guys just like you who are going in the same direction, have similar needs, and who desire to grow in their faith. We also get together a few times a year just to enjoy great food, fun, and make connections with other men.

    If you have any questions, please fill out the form HERE.

    ~ transformed by God’s Word

    ~ connected to another woman

  • Worship

    Our Philosophy

    At High Pointe Church we believe every living being is created to worship God. Every act, every thought, every decision presents us with the opportunity to worship Him. We often choose to worship or show worth to lesser things. Things that aren't worthy of our devotion but nevertheless end up getting it. But, when we get it right and live in ways that reflect God's worth in our lives we display the calling Paul exhorts us to in Romans 12. “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God.”
