At 10 am every Sunday, we gather in our historic sanctuary to worship God.
Worship is arranged around the Christian year, celebrating seasons such as Lent, Easter, and Advent.
Services typically last one hour and feature a choir, organ music, responsive readings, and a sermon. Our sermons are scripturally based and last about 20 minutes. The dress is typically more formal, though you will see people dressed in all styles. The ministers typically wear robes.
In our worship, we seek to bring the best of ourselves—heart, mind, and soul—to worship God. We believe that our worship can be creative, because God is ever new; challenging, because God always calls us to deeper faith; and honest, because God wants us to come as we really are.
We occasionally offer other worship services outside of the Sunday morning format, such as an Ash Wednesday service or a Longest Night service; these are opportunities for us to shake up our normal worship patterns while still focusing on God.
At Hampton Baptist, we strive to balance two important characteristics of our faith: we want faith to be thoughtful and informed, while also remaining practical and relevant to daily life.
We offer Sunday School classes and Bible studies for people of all ages, as well as spiritual formation opportunities through retreats, workshops, and special events. Whether we are moving systematically through a book of the Bible, studying current events through the lens of faith, or exploring church history for modern applications, all that we do seeks to strengthen our faith for the modern world.
