Children’s Ministries

We are called to nurture our faith through a deeper understanding of Scripture, tradition and our experience of God moving in and among us.

•           to offer the opportunity to all who walk through our doors,

•           to know the scriptures,

•           to become articulate about faith,

•           and to see more clearly the relationship between God, the gospel, and our world.

In September through June, after the Children’s sermon during worship the children move upstairs to our classrooms for Sunday School classes for pre-school through 6th grade. We focus upon a Bible story or theme for a period of 4-6 weeks. Each week the children learn about the theme through various modes of learning such as arts & crafts, games, storytelling, computer, science, food, video, and music. The Cokesbury curriculum called “Grow, Proclaim and Serve” is used to lead them in their spiritual growth and understanding.

With the direction and support of our Spiritual Growth Ministry Team, Hawker Church provides educational opportunities for children of all ages on Sunday mornings.

Our Youth Group Sunday Coffee Talk for our 7th through 12th grade youth meets in the Crusader’s Room. Open discussions are invited. Fellowship is encouraged. Varied Bible topics are studied and discussed. The group decides their topics with adult oversight.

Our Confirmands take part in yearlong experiences before they join the church. They take part in all of our special services as greeters, readers, acolytes, and ushers. They meet together monthly with their mentors and our pastor. Our entire congregation treasures them.
