The Mission Outreach Committee strives to spread the word of God by promoting and supporting opportunities for mission through education, personal service, and financial support in order to positively impact the lives of others.
Our Mission Focus for September is Hair Peace Charities
Founder, Bonny Diver Hall says, “God had a big dream for me after beating cancer. I was encouraged by my doctor to start Hair Peace Charities. Ingomar Church stepped in to help me get started and continues to help today.”
“Most health insurance doesn’t pay for a wig, even though wigs are often needed due to side-effects of chemotherapy treatments. A wig can provide a level of confidence that enables a woman to go to work, to school or to the grocery store throughout the time of cancer treatment and recovery.”
“Over the last 16 years I have received calls from thousands of women in need of financial help. In addition to the $200 we provide to help with the purchase of a wig, we also talk about strategies for dealing with their cancer. We send two books: “Prayers to Sustain You Through Cancer” and “The Warrior’s Guide.” A prayer team continues our support by sending cards of encouragement.”
“I will always be thankful for the help of my church family!”

Through the Mission Outreach Committee, Ingomar Church disburses approximately $98,000 annually to domestic and foreign Missions, including Mission scholarships. Funding comes from the Church Operating Budget, the Rummage Sale, the sale of Giant Eagle cards at church, and proceeds from Amazon Smile, as well as from the generous donations from our congregation.
Information about the agencies can be found in the Monthly News Brief, the Mission Focus videos, and on the church website. Our goal is to keep the congregation informed about the different missions we support and to provide opportunities for hands on experiences for all ages.
