Why We Are Here

Hampton UMC has existed in the Hampton community for over 100 years with a simple and meaningful mission, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with everyone we meet. Whether we are meeting for worship, in small groups, Bible Study, playing kickball, distributing food, or sharing a meal together, we want everyone to come to The Table and join us. We would love for everyone to come be a part of what God is doing at Hampton UMC as God is calling us deeper into the grace and love of Jesus Christ.
