A note from Providence's new Pastor


Dear Providence Family - Rachel and I are so much looking forward to joining you in ministry!  We have been praying that God would lead us to just such a place as Providence and we are over-joyed that you affirmed that “call” last Sunday with your congregational vote.

Our first Sunday is on March 4th and we couldn't be more excited to make Hilton Head Island and Providence our new home. I look forward to learning your history and listening to your dreams for the future.  Can't wait to get started!

In Christ,

Building for the Future of Providence

This Three-Year Capital Campaign was launched in March of 2017 to provide funds for three purposes:

  1. Provide Upgrades to our Existing Campus,
  2. Provide Uplifts to our Historic Buildings and Property, and
  3. Open the Treasure to our East Campus Property.

The Goal:  Raise $2,300,000 over the three years to provide for identified projects that will preserve facilities and build for the future, Causing God Joy!

We Live Our Core Values

In a unique way we live our Core Values, differentiating our Providence Church from other Presbyterian Churches. We are passionate about sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, remaining loyal to Biblical truth, even if it puts us at odds with our denomination. Our hope is found in the promise of God’s grace, guiding us to be our Lord’s agents of transformation. Coordinated through a prayerfully inspired Strategic Plan, our leadership and ministries are a faithful blending of vision and practice. Our Stewardship is generously manifested through grateful, faith-based giving, rather than pledge promises. We are a close, yet diverse church family, welcoming vacationers from our beaches, while each Sunday demonstrating our unity through singing the Lord’s Prayer and holding hands for the benediction. We are the Providence Presbyterian Church and from the formative years of our congregation, our mission has been to Cause God Joy.

Rev. Dr. John R. Wall


Providence takes pride in the friendly social relationships that we have with one another.  Our worship services, programs and events are structured to foster those relationships.  We, as a congregation, look forward to participating in a variety of activities of our church.  We are aware of our community responsibilities to offer a source of religious and social support.  Whether you are a permanent resident, part timer or visitor, you are welcome!  Our members will cordially respond to your visit with us.

"Life and Ministry of the Messiah" is a 6 week study led by Rev. Ray and Sandy Peterson. This study was filmed on location in Israel and is an adventure in Biblical learning. You will discover why Jesus turned the world upside down with his compelling call to follow him. This study is being held in the church office building Library.
