Church, unlike quiet times of Bible study and prayer, is a communal experience. We come together to make a joyful noise for our God. At HPC we welcome and desire for children to be part of the worship service. Many parents choose to have their younger children remain in the service in its entirety, We also offer children's church during the worship service, one for ages 2-4 and another for ages K-1st grade. It is an experience designed to prepare children to engage in lifelong participation in worship. Our goal is to equip kids with the knowledge of the elements of our worship here at HPC while also guiding them in a time of singing and rich teaching that will speak to their hearts. For K-1st grade, this occurs as a split service, meaning families will begin worship together in the sanctuary. At a designated point in the service, the children will have the opportunity to line up to be escorted to the children’s wing to continue in worship. For preschoolers, ages 2-4, they will begin the service hour in children’s church, followed by time in their classroom. Our children's church service is led by a passionate ministry team and will include songs, prayer, offering, Bible story, and lessons on the elements of worship.
