Mission is the support, through prayer, personal participation and financial assistance, of any endeavor outside of our local congregation. Mission seeks to fulfill the Great Commission of Christ by proclaiming the gospel of Christ, making disciples and addressing the needs (spiritual, physical, emotional and social) of all people.
Hampton Presbyterian Church’s Mission Program works in four different areas:
- World Missions
- Local Missions
- Adult Mission Trips - Every year, the adults of HPC head out beyond their local horizon to a place where people are in need. We respond in the love of Christ as ambassadors for His sake.
- Special Offerings - As a PC(USA) congregation, we participate in four special offerings each year.
