  • HUPC has a new Facebook page: “Hamilton Union Presbyterian Church - HUPC.” This was done due to technical problems with our old Facebook page: “Hamilton Union Presbyterian Church.” Please check it out, like it, follow it and share with your friends! The old page will exist for a while longer, but is no longer being updated.  If you are on Facebook, search on Hamilton Union Presbyterian Church - HUPC. The new page will come up as an option. Sometimes Facebook search cuts off the end of results, so if this happens go with the Hamilton Union page that (currently — we hope this will change soon!) has fewer likes. For those not on Facebook, the URL of the new page is https://www.facebook.com/Hamilton-Union-Presbyterian-Church-HUPC-104008644295946/ . However, it is possible that you will not be able to see the page unless you already have a Facebook account/page.

    A quick way to get to the HUPC Facebook page is to go to our web site at http://hamiltonunionpresbyterianchurch.org/ and click the Facebook symbol. If you have news or photos of recent HUPC events please email to the Facebook page “keeper,” Karen Williams, at kawillia302@gmail.com. 

  • Pastor Janice is making available a daily “E-votional” for members and friends of the church.
