Our Family Ministry welcomes all families to join us in a variety of ways! We develop, energize, and maintain vibrant programming to support our children, youth and families in their faith journeys from infancy to adulthood. We partner with families to help you grow TOGETHER in your relationship with God by combining the influence of church and home to fuel the faith in the next generation.
HPCUMC Children’s Ministry provides a fun, safe, and loving place where children and families can grow in their faith, grow in relationships, and grow in their knowledge of living as disciples of Jesus Christ.
The Youth Ministry at Hyde Park Community seeks to partner with parents to help youth develop in all aspects of life while preparing for college and careers. Youth are given opportunities to explore their gifts and talents through worship, discipleship, and leadership.
