Know. Experience. Connect.

At HPC, we want to give our kids a foundation for a lifelong faith that will stick with them no matter where life takes them. We do this by helping kids to…

Karen Shumaker
  • Know the Story- We want HPC Kids to know the Story of how God has worked and continues to work in human history, and we want kids to know that they are a part of that Story.
  • Experience Discipleship- HPC Kids experience discipleship as they engage in worship, Bible reading, service projects, missions, and prayer.
  • Connect with the Community- At HPC Kids we place a high priority on a child’s relationships with his or her peers and mentors. We think every kid needs a community inside the church that makes church a “second home,” and we make a conscious effort to help nurture such a community.

Volunteers Needed!

Hi Friends. Spring has FINALLY arrived! While I don’t want to rush things, I’m looking ahead to summer. Specifically, I’m putting together a team of volunteers to help with Children’s Church (for preschoolers through 2nd graders) during the 9:30 and 11:00 services this summer. Do you enjoy being with kids? Do you have a heart for sharing God’s love and truth with them? Are you available to help once a month during the summer? If so, please shoot me an email, give me a call at (412) 897-1131, or grab me at church. Interested, but not quite ready to commit? Feel free to contact me! I’d be happy to talk with you!!!!

Grace and Peace,
Karen Shumaker

Parent Resources What the Kids are Learning During Sunday Classes? Favorite Bibles and Bible Storybooks:
  • The NIrV Adventure Bible - This is the Bible we give our 2nd graders on Reformation Day each year. It is a great children’s Bible written on the 3rd grade reading level. It has all the books, chapters and verses of a regular Bible, but it also has special pages and graphics containing interesting facts and devotional materials for children.
  • The Read and Learn Bible - This is a great Bible story book to read aloud to your non-reader or to have your elementary child read aloud to you or to his younger siblings. It includes a wide variety of stories from the Bible. Stories are simple and true to the original text.
  • The Jesus Storybook Bible - In this little treasure, Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrator Jago have woven together the Biblical narrative, beautiful artwork, and a rich and vibrant Christology. It is a book for children, but it can be read by teens and even adults as well. This book will teach you that the Bible is not a book of rules, but a love story. And that God is a Father who will move heaven and earth to get his lost children back.
Holiday Favorites:
  • Why Do We Call it Christmas? - This DVD from the What’s in the Bible? series provides kids with a wealth of information on the traditions and stories of the holiday season. Why do we decorate a tree? How did Santa get his start? Was Jesus really born on December 25th? Come find out!
Dealing with Tough Questions:
  • What Happens When We Die? - This is a simple, straightforward book by children’s author Carolyn Nystrom. The book addresses children’s questions head-on and gives answers that are both comforting and theologically sound.

Sunday Evening Programs

HPC Kids Evening – 2nd & 4th Sundays of every month from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm.

  • K2Kicks (grades K-2; Rm 306 & Fellowship Hall) - Twice a month our K-2nd graders come together at night to run, play, create, eat, and learn about God.
  • Club 345 (grades 3-5, Rm 309 & Fellowship Hall) - It’s like youth group, but shorter! In Club 345 tweens connect with each other, group mentors, and God as they play together, share a snack, and take a look at Biblical topics.

Special Event Info

In addition to our regular weekly programs, we have a number of special programs throughout the year that seek to provide students with unique opportunities to experience their faith. Please check our Events page for more information.
