Who We are...

Welcome! We're excited you've decided to take a closer look at our church family. HPC is an Evangelical Presbyterian Church right in the heart of Hudson, OH. In short, we are simply a church family that wants to serve Jesus. We aren’t perfect, but our Lord is, and He is at work here at HPC. We seek to be a place where the tired can come to be energized, the lonely can find friendships, the hurting can find comfort, and the broken can find peace through our only Lord Jesus Christ. Take a look around or even better - join us for a Sunday!


We at Hudson Presbyterian Church are called to fulfill a Vision that we feel the Lord has led us to -- "Hudson Presbyterian Church will be known as a place where people come to KNOW Jesus, SERVE Jesus, and BRING OTHERS to Jesus." All of our Ministries focus upon these three things. 


We are located at 201 W. Streetsboro St. Hudson Ohio 44236 -- (Please click on link for directions)


Our Weekly Worship Times are 8:30AM and 10:30AM

Ways to engage with our Church Family:

Prayer Ministry -- We meet every Tuesday evening at 7PM outside of the HPC offices.  Please join us or send your prayer requests to Pastor Rob at rob@hudsonpc.org.


What is your love language? — Understanding how you best receive love, will shape how you show love.  As we continue our look at the 5 Love Languages, how we see them in the Character of God, and how we can show the love of Christ for others in the way that they receive love, we hope that you will take 5 minutes to take this quiz, to better see what your love language is.  You can find the quiz here: https://www.5lovelanguages.com/quizzes/.  Each quiz is the same in helping you find your love language.

The Emergency Assistance Center in Northfield (TEAC) has been a local outreach mission for HPC for several years. Their mission is to provide, food, clothing, personal items, and seasonal support to North Summit County neighbors in need (approximately 900 per month).You are probably most familiar with the birthday bags assembled by our 55+ Alive group. Did you know that some of the Angel Tree gift cards you donate at Christmas are also given to TEAC? We have recently volunteered to provide a number of hygiene items to the center on an ongoing basis. They especially request from us such items as deodorant, dish soap, hand soap, laundry detergent, toothpaste, shampoo, baby wipes, toilet paper, paper towels, and tissues. The Mission Committee will have an Emergency Assistance Center basket on the donation shelves in the Barry Jones Parlor for contributions.A representative from TEAC will be at our October 13th worship service (Moment for Missions). We hope to present her with a generous collection of the requested items at that time.

The choir’s first Sunday to sing in worship will be September 15.


Do you play a musical instrument? If so, please consider sharing your talent in the worship ministry. If you have questions about any of these ministry opportunities, contact Sue Anderson: sue@hudsonpc.org


Handbell Choir Resumes  Music in worship has been integral since Old Testament times: “David told the leaders of the Levites to appoint their fellow Levites as musicians to make a joyful sound with musical instruments: lyres, harps and cymbals.” 1 Chronicles 15:16 NIV   Thankfully, our cymbals have morphed into handbells in modern times, but the freedom and responsibility for each of us to lead in worship through music is no  different. The handbell choir lost 3 members over the summer months and needs new members to carry on this worship ministry. We’ll opt not to follow David’s model of appointing people to the job, but perhaps you can pray on whether you have a place with us when we start up in September. We anticipate moving our rehearsals to Wednesday evenings, always 7-8 PM sharp on both ends. Minimal music knowledge is required and we will patiently teach you to ring. This is a great opportunity for youth (we are glad to sign off on  service hours for your time) as well as older believers who value the enhancement of worship music with the bells. Contact Sarah Norman 216-990-9082 or sgnorman@aol.com for further information.  


Sunday - September 15th -- All Sunday Morning Studies and Classes will resume.   We will be having one adult class for the first 8 weeks as we walk through the Alpha program together.   We will meet in the Fellowship Hall for a video and discussion.   You will not want to miss this time.  We will meet each Sunday from 9:35AM -- 10:20AM
