Family, Children and Youth

Welcome to our Church School "FaithWorks"!


High Mountain Presbyterian Church 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 Jesus, about God’s love, mercy, justice and peace for all and how we can be God’s instruments of that peace.

  Every Sunday children and youth meet for opening worship before going to classes. Parents are welcome to keep young children with them during worship or bring them to Faith Works for any or all of the worship time. Our worship service includes a “Time with Children.” Children assist in worship and share greeting and ushering duties with other adult volunteers.  We hope you will join us!

March 2015: Confirmation Class:  All youth from 6th to 12th grade are invited to join the Confirmation Class of 2015. This new program is an eight-week opportunity for youth to explore their faith. We believe that faith is a gift from God, and that discovering and growing your faith is a journey. God calls people at different times and in different ways. We don’t assume that everyone will end up in the same place, but we want you to have the chance to experience and explore for yourself how to grow in your relationship with God. If the Christian faith and spirituality are important to you and your family, you may want to give it a try! Program details will be available soon but feel free to email Patricia Pastás at or leave a message at (201)891-0511 if you have questions or need additional information regarding the confirmation class.
