Christian Education

Welcome to Ḟaithworks, our Church for children! We are glad that you are interested in finding out more about our faith formation to all ages. High Mountain Presbyterian Church (HMPC) welcomes families of all kinds, and people of all ages, to join us as we grow together in God’s love.

Every Sunday, teachers, childcare workers, and young students gather together for a time of  fun sharing, games and hands-on activities. At our time together we learn about the Bible, about God’s love for all, about Jesus, God’s Son,  his ways of justice,  caring  and how we can be his instruments of peace and reconciliation.

Every Sunday children and youth meet for the opening worship before going to classes. Parents are welcome to keep young children with them during worship or bring them to Ḟaithworks, on the 2nd floor of the church house, for any or all of the worship time. Our worship service includes a “Time of conversation with Children,” and times when youth assist in worship and share greeting and ushering duties with other adult volunteers. If you are looking for a church family, you may want to consider to join our community of faith. We hope you visit with us sometime!
