We participate in the following north american missions:
CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST
Our church members donate ministry items requested by missionaries serving in various areas of North America. Carole Steeley has led this effort for Hawhammock for serveral years selecting the missionaries to be served and sending the boxes of supplies.
CHRISTMAS BACKPACKS FOR APPALACHIA
Working with the Georgia Baptist Convention, our church family
has provided backpacks filled with suggested items for children in East Kentucky, East Tennessee, and New York. These items will be delivered to the Georgia Baptist Convention in November for Christmas delivery to the region. This will be our third year to participate in this ministry.

For the past four years, we have sent mission teams to serve at Camp Hawkins. It is a summer residential camp for youth ages 8-21 coping with varying developmental disabilities. This camp is led by the Georgia Baptist Children's Home and Family Ministries. This year we sent a team of 15 to Baxley,Ga.
Allan & Tiffany Taylor
We give and pray to support missionaries Allan and Tiffany Taylor. They have three children Arieh, Jachin, and Selah. They are currently serving with Navigators ministry in Norfolk, Va. They minister to those in the Navy. Tiffany is the daughter of Ron and Sharon Weatherford, who is the Worship Leader and Choir Director at Hawhammock.
THE GREAT EXCHANGE
We have teamed with Jon Deans and The Great Exchange ministry to witness to college students on their campuses. Using a survey, team members engage in spiritual conversations. The team encourages students to connect with Christian ministries on their campuses and local churches. We also partnered with this ministry in Germany in 2014.
