ANCHOR STUDENT MINISTRIES
Our vision is to see students’ lives transformed by the power of the gospel.
Hilton Head Presbyterian Church is committed to family based youth ministry. Our desire is to come alongside and assist parents in the Christian nurture and growth of their children. We believe that God works through his covenant promises to families and our goal is to encourage and help parents in the spiritual growth of their children. We seek to challenge students to truly own their own faith and accordingly engage the world around them.
Our staff and volunteers carry out this vision by discipling students through contact ministry, weekly programming, and retreats.
If you have questions or would like more information, please contact our Pastor of Students and Families, Tim Pitzer.
Middle School - Sundays at 5:30 PM
High School - Sundays at 7:00 PM
Students are encouraged to bring their friends as we have our hearts and minds renewed by the Word of God. Join us as we grow closer to Christ and one another in deep community.
Sundays at 9:00 AM
Join us on Sunday mornings as we study God’s Word and have your life transformed by the power of the gospel. This fall, we're in an 8-week study on the book of Colossians where we'll see that studying His Word is about being connected to Christ and having a relationship with Him as He is presented to us in the Scriptures - Christ is our only hope.
"To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory." - Colossians 1:27

This group is designed just for fifth graders, to help navigate the exciting (and sometimes overwhelming) transition from elementary to middle school.
This class will meet weekly during the school year and mirror the Anchor Student Ministry youth group calendar, but it is a separate ministry led by Stuart and Shannon Bedenbaugh. Each week includes a short lesson, games, and more. Please contact Shannon for more information.

American Heritage Girls (AHG) is a nationwide Christ-centered, faith-based program for girls K-12th grade. Our Bluffton/HHI troop meets the first three Thursdays of the month from 5:00 - 6:30 PM at HHPC.
Through faith, service, and fun, American Heritage Girls strives to build young women of integrity. The girls work to earn badges, do service projects, study God's Word, and enjoy special events.
