Children’s Sunday School

 

Click here for information about our Nursery.

Children Ages 3 thru Grade 6 begin their morning in the sanctuary with their parent(s).

After the children’s sermon, the group leaves with Miss Faith for their own session during the remainder of the worship service. During the summer there will be a different theme each Sunday. Children will have a Bible Story using the Whirl curriculum. It will be followed by a special activity each week. Children will be free to leave around 11 am

June 16–SuperHero Sunday

Kids come dressed as their favorite superhero. Bonus points if it is their earthly or heavenly father!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Miss Faith is the children’s ministry coordinator and runs many fun activities to introduce children to Biblical concepts. Later, children get an opportunity to play on our beautiful playground.

We look forward to spending time with your child!

 

We are pleased to share that our children’s Sunday School program has just launched a new curriculum. Each week our youngest members at HPPC will hear a new Bible story, watch a fun video, play games, engage in activities, sing songs and explore crafts. Miss Faith and her helpers will have fun with the children and they will, over time, learn that they are a precious child of God. (As we all are; we just sometimes don’t act like it. Re: sermon 4/14.)

If you are interested in occasionally serving as a substitute teacher — maybe a couple of times a year — please let Faith know at children@hydeparkpres.com.

This year, Miss Faith will be teaching a curriculum from  the Whirl series. The spring classes will be based on the following: Each lesson has handouts and a variety of activities for children to enjoy.

Grades 4 through Grade 6 

The Hyde Park Thesbyterians, aka the 4th through 6th graders, dramatise Bible stories.  Taught by Harriet Plyler, they pore over the RSV Bible to study language and discern speaking parts, then set about writing and casting, and finally act and film the whole story. 

 

Their winter production featured the world premiere of  In the Beginning: One God, Two People, and the First and Last Ever Talking Snake.  We added AI special effects, but the captions were so bizarre, we have reverted to the original filmed version for general viewing here.

For their 2024 spring summer production, they are working with Stacey Crum on “Whither Thou Goest: Ruth Finds in Love in a Barley Field”.
