At HPC, we want to give our kids a foundation for a lifelong faith that will stick with them no matter where life takes them. We do this by helping kids to…
Know the Story- We want HPC Kids to know the Story of how God has worked and continues to work in human history, and we want kids to know that they are a part of that Story.
Experience Discipleship- HPC Kids experience discipleship as they engage in worship, Bible reading, service projects, missions, and prayer.
Connect with the Community- At HPC Kids we place a high priority on a child’s relationships with his or her peers and mentors. We think every kid needs a community inside the church that makes church a “second home,” and we make a conscious effort to help nurture such a community.

Summer's Best Two Weeks is back! Taking place every year, Summer’s Best Two Weeks (SB2W) is a Christian day camp program offered by Hampton Presbyterian Church for boys and girls currently in grades K-7. SB2W uses athletics, Bible study, and other activities to teach the love of Jesus Christ. Activities include traditional team sports (soccer, volleyball, basketball, hockey), individual sports (track and field, swimming, archery), and other activities (art, music, team challenges) along with daily Bible study. Event runs at HPC with swimming occuring off-site.
Join us as we venture onto an uncharted island and become anchored in the truth that Jesus carries us through life’s storms. During our fun-filled week together we’ll make friends, sing songs, play games, create crafts, and experience God’s Word.
Vacation Bible School is for kids ages 4 through those who've just completed 5th grade. For questions, please call or email Karen Shumaker or Carole Mills at (724) 443-3201.

The NIrV Adventure Bible - This is the Bible we give our 2nd graders on Reformation Day each year. It is a great children’s Bible written on the 3rd grade reading level. It has all the books, chapters and verses of a regular Bible, but it also has special pages and graphics containing interesting facts and devotional materials for children.
The Read and Learn Bible - This is a great Bible story book to read aloud to your non-reader or to have your elementary child read aloud to you or to his younger siblings. It includes a wide variety of stories from the Bible. Stories are simple and true to the original text.
The Jesus Storybook Bible - In this little treasure, Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrator Jago have woven together the Biblical narrative, beautiful artwork, and a rich and vibrant Christology. It is a book for children, but it can be read by teens and even adults as well. This book will teach you that the Bible is not a book of rules, but a love story. And that God is a Father who will move heaven and earth to get his lost children back.
Why Do We Call it Christmas? - This DVD from the What’s in the Bible? series provides kids with a wealth of information on the traditions and stories of the holiday season. Why do we decorate a tree? How did Santa get his start? Was Jesus really born on December 25th? Come find out!
Dealing with Tough Questions:
What Happens When We Die? - This is a simple, straightforward book by children’s author Carolyn Nystrom. The book addresses children’s questions head-on and gives answers that are both comforting and theologically sound.
