Vacation Bible Camp "Discovery"
Thanks to a group of
hard-working, dedicated volunteers and staff, our second Vacation Bible Camp
was another success. Using a curriculum entitled, “Camp Discovery,” Jesus
is at work in us and through us we remembered and enjoyed three wonderful
stories from the Bible. During our time together we learned from the story of
David and Goliath in 1 Samuel 17:1-51 to “Be strong and courageous because God is
with us wherever we go” (Joshua 1:9). Then from the story of Deborah in
Judges 4:1-16, we learned that “God gives us wisdom, knowledge and
understanding” (Proverbs 2:6), and the last day we knew from the story of
Jesus and Bartimaeus in Mark 10:46-52 that “Faith is a Gift of God” (Ephesians
2:8). Also, everyone learned new songs; engaged in a series of themed crafts
activities, had yoga time, ate yummy snacks; and gathered for “Tree-mendous
Opening & Closing” celebration. Thank you for serving with
your time and talents at Camp Discovery Vacation Bible Camp.
CONFIRMATION SUNDAY- CLASS 2015
On the Day of Pentecost and Confirmation Sunday, seven young people were presented by the session during worship service for the reaffirming of the baptismal covenant into which they were baptized. They professed publicly their faith to assume grater responsibility in the life of the church, and God's mission in the world. Everybody was rejoiced!!
Petting Zoo and Egg Hunt, 2015
This past Palm Sunday the church hosted a petting farm for everyone to enjoy. Along with the chickens bunnies, ducks, lambs and a rooster for everyone to touch, we had an extra special surprise, a donkey at the beginning of our Palm Sunday parade! We also had an Easter Egg Hunt for all ages. We had so much fun!! Here are some pics for you to enjoy.
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!
