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.

Providence's Television Ministry

During high-school football season, Saturday broadcasts of a half-hour of highlights from the previous Sunday’s worship service are broadcast on WHHI TV at the regular 6:00 am time but then at 1:30 pm instead of 10:30 am. Sunday’s programs continue at 6:00 am and 10:30 am. You can view the same highlights here at your convenience after the Friday following the service, under the heading of WORSHIP and then selecting SERMONS.
