Grounded in Faith,
Growing in His Spirit.

"Grounded in faith and guided by the Holy Spirit, we are sent as faithful ambassadors to reflect the hope of salvation through Jesus Christ." "Grounded in faith and guided by the Holy Spirit, we are sent
as faithful ambassadors to reflect the hope of salvation through Jesus Christ."

We offer a full slate of programs for Middle and High School Students (6th - 12th grade). Our goal at Hampton Presbyterian Church is simple: "In response to grace of Jesus Christ and in obedience to the Holy Spirit, our mission is to partner with families to make disciples of the youth of our community".

Our vision is that our youth would have a passionate and consequential faith so that:

Ryan Pixton
  • They have a personal story about God they can share
  • They have a deep connection to others in the church
  • They have a sense of God-driven purpose for their lives
  • They have a sense of hope about their future

Transitions (Confirmation)

Transitions
(Confirmation)

Our Transitions Program is our name for what in many churches is known as “Confirmation”. Transitions has five primary goals:

  • To help participants begin and/or grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ
  • To equip participants to grow in faith
  • To connect participants to the community of faith both personally and corporately
  • To help participants understand the promises made on their behalf in Baptism
  • To prepare students to make a public profession of faith resulting in formal church membership

Transitions runs from September – May and meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month. For more information about Transitions please contact the church office.

Special Event Info

In addition to our regular weekly programs, we have a number of special programs throughout the year that seek to provide students with unique opportunities to experience their faith.

Retreats

Youth Retreats

Weekend-long retreats give students an opportunity to participate in Christian fellowship and explore matters of faith and life in an in-depth setting. Retreats also allow students to have a whole lot of fun. Whether it be flying down a zip line, listening to a speaker, working through a high-ropes challenge course, or late-night discussion in the cabin, retreats offer students a truly unique and powerful experience of fellowship and transformation.
