We started off the school season with Blessing of the Backpacks and a Church picnic this August. It was a wonderful time filled with giggles, good food, great conversations and lots of jumping around. The kids are definitely ready for school to start!
Sunday School will officially begin Sunday, September 17th. K-2nd graders will meet with me in the classroom at the far end of the upstairs hall. The older group, made up of 3rd-5th graders, will be working with Mr. Freeman, Dr. Thompson and Mr. Welhouse this year. I will also be teaching the 3rd-5th graders once a month, with the other three teachers rotating in to cover the K-2 grade group. In this manner, all teachers will get to know the children of our church, and all kids will get to be comfortable with different teachers. We are excited to welcome Mr. Freeman into the world of Sunday school.
HPPK will return on September 24th. All K-5th graders who love to sing, dance and act are welcome to be a member of our troupe. We will practice and perform a Nativity play for the congregation during service in December. All practices will be from 11:15 to 12:00 on Sundays.
I’m looking for creative and excited 6th-9th graders to help with assistant director, stage manager and set designer positions for our play.
Please see Ms Ginny if you’re interested and can commit to attending at least ¾ of our practices! Join the fun in a different way to see what gifts you can give to the congregation.
We are happy to announce the arrival of Monthly Moments for our 6th-9th graders. Beginning in October, the youth group will meet one weeknight during the second week of each month. We will come together for fellowship, planning of service projects, fun activities and moments to explore our relationship with God. Please be on the lookout for an email from Ginny regarding the scheduling of our first meeting!
This year, all communication from Ms. Ginny will be found on the HPPC Children and Youth Blog, linked to our church website. Please check for updates here regularly. Meeting dates, upcoming service projects, Sunday school and HPPK news will all be available on the blog. All registration forms will also be on the blog for your convenience.
