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.

"Getting to Know Your Bible"

Getting to Know Your Bible

The class is designed for 2nd graders and their parents and is tied to the presentation of Bibles that happened on Reformation Sunday (10/29). The class is a basic introduction to the Bible and is designed to help families learn more about the Bible and how to use it and other faith resources in the home. Topics to be covered include: What is the Bible? How can a 2nd grader really read the Bible? How do we apply what we learn from the Bible to our daily lives? Please email Karen Shumaker to learn more.

All classes are in the Hospitality Room.

  • Sun. 11/19 - 2nd graders & their parents; 6:15p - 7:15p

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!
  • Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving - You may have heard of Squanto, but do you know his story? It’s a good one!
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.
