At HPC, children are very important. We have several ministries that serve our children and those in our community by teaching and modeling for them the gospel of Jesus Christ. But ministries are not just programs at HPC. They reflect our conviction that children are a “heritage” from the Lord.
During the worship service each week (before the regular sermon), young children come to the front of the sanctuary to hear a brief lesson on the topic of the day’s sermon. We often hear from adults that the simple truth of God’s word crystallizes the main point of the sermon for them.
Sunday school classes are provided each week for children. See the Sunday School page for more information.
Family Friday Fun Nights
HPC’s children’s ministry team sponsors occasional events to foster closer friendships between our families, children, youth, and their friends. These events, affectionately known as “Family Friday Fun Nights” are filled with food, games, activities, and just hanging around with people. It is always a great time to invite neighbors and friends to mingle with Christians in a low-pressure setting.
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
Note: There is no VBS scheduled for 2012. See below for information on Backyard Bible Clubs (BBC).
Backyard Bible Clubs (BBC)
In 2011, HPC hosted a BBC event:
July 18-22, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm. Eva Walker Park, Warrenton, VA. Download flyer.
- The theme is “to discover things hidden”. Elementary school age children (especially those from the local neighborhood!) are invited. Lessons will focus on five parables that Jesus told about the Kingdom of God. Each day’s event will include lessons, activities, games, crafts, and snacks.
- Important note to parents: Backyard Bible Clubs are “neighborhood” activities. Children are welcome to participate on a voluntary basis. Children will be supervised while they are participating in club activities, but they are free to leave or go home as they please. BBC volunteers cannot be held responsible for children once they leave club activities.
