Sunday School Classes for all Ages
September through May
Kids and Youth are Important
At Hilltop UMC we recognize the importance of developing a strong spiritual foundation for our children and youth. Our staff and adult volunteers are committed to developing lessons and activities that are age appropriate and Biblically sound. Sunday School classes are offered for children age 2 through 8th grade Sundays from September through May from 9:30 - 10:20 a.m. Our education Department is a cheerful and safe environment for children to learn about God's love for them.
Vacation Bible School
Every summer Hilltop offers Vacation Bible School during the evening hours for one week. A theme is selected and all décor, lessons and activities center around that theme. VBS is free and open to all children age 3 through 5th grade. Middle school and high school youth are encouraged to serve as assistant leaders.
Confirmation studies for 6th - 8th graders is a three year experience of developing a friendship with God through a combination of lessons and weekend retreats.
Weekly activities for youth in 6th - 12th grades are offered Wednesdays from 6 - 9 p.m. The evening begins with supper for Middle School youth at 6:00 p.m. After supper, Middle Schoolers gather for group time activities or discussion until 7:30. Activities alternate weeks with Confirmation study. Sr. High youth meet from 7:30 - 9 p.m. for study and discussions with some fun activities added occasionally.
During the summer months special events such as an evening at Thunder Road or hiking at Great Bear Park keep Hilltop youth connected. Opportunities to be of service come in the form of a mission trip each summer. Some trips are to far away places and others are closer to home. Learn more here.
