On Sunday mornings after praise and worship, children, age three (3) through twelfth grade, are offered an opportunity to take part in a service, tailor made for them, on the other side of the building. Supervised and taught by adults who have the gift of teaching, children are split into groups, according to their ages.
The oldest children, primarily those in high school, are taught the word of God by dynamic teachers, and they are given the opportunity to apply biblical truths to their lives. Current events are a common basis for lessons, and the youth are invited to participate in the discussion-based style of the class. We recognize that children of this age are tempted by the cares of the world in very tangible ways; therefore, we strive to help them to hide the Word of God in their hearts that they might not sin against God.
Youth in upper elementary and middle school learn God’s word through videos, drama, art, cooperative/competitive games, and problem solving. They enjoy the lively and energetic discussions and less formal style of learning, so they participate easily and retain a great deal of the biblical principles they are taught. We seek to nurture their love for the Lord so that they are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our youngest children learn the Bible stories by enthusiastic teachers who use a call and response technique. Pre-reading and reading skills are included as well. Also, as a part of their service, they are taught to worship the Lord through song and to lay hands on the sick. Activities include arts and crafts, drama, games, singing, miming, and many others.
The HYPE Children’s Choir ministers in the main service on Youth Sunday services. Additionally children from HYPE recite scriptures, perform mimes and skits, at various times, and trips, special celebrations, and social activities are offered throughout the year.
