Organization Description

While the composition of our congregation tends toward an older demographic, we are a multi-generational community of faith that is politically as well theologically diverse but united in our commitment to the Lord, blessed with an abundance of experienced, bright, and gifted Christians with discretionary time and financial resources.


We live in a town that is a destination for vacationers, “snowbirds,” and many retirees, as well as service workers and young professionals. We seek opportunities to lead others to Christ and his love for us by attracting, inviting, welcoming, and engaging more visitors, newly retired residents, and especially more families and young people into the body of Christ at FPCHHI.


We are located in South Carolina’s wealthiest county, but one with areas of significant need. Also, some of the adjacent counties are among the poorest in the nation, where schools have woefully inadequate facilities and resources. We are committed to loving and serving these and other neighbors in need.


We are a “Community Church”, perceived by members and non-members alike, as a center of community life and activity, as we have facilities to host large groups such as the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra, the Hilton Head Choral Society, and the World Affairs Council. We value opportunities to engage in community activities and events as well as facilitate community conversations about important issues.
