The Bible teaching ministry at HBC is designed and organized in such a way as to provide a place for everyone. It consists of four major age divisions: preschool, children’s, youth and adults.
Children acquire faith little by little starting from birth. Luke 2:52 says, “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” Our Preschool Sunday School Division helps lay the foundation for a child’s spiritual development. Learning for all preschoolers centers around eight basic concept areas. They are: God, Jesus, church, the Bible, family, self, others and the natural world.
Separate teaching units are provided for the following preschool ages: infants and toddlers and three and four year olds.
The Children’s Sunday School Division at HBC utilizes the innovative “Workshop Rotation Model.” Our version of this model is called Kids Alive! and includes kindergarten through grade 5. This unique and creative Bible learning experience for children takes place in the newly renovated and totally transformed children’s section of our facility.

CROSS(†)WALK (based on Galatians 6) is the name of the non-traditional youth gathering on Sunday mornings. Youth in grades 6-12 experience an exciting time of creative Bible study utilizing a wide variety of multi-media resources.
The Adult Sunday School Groups at HBC are friendly, supportive discipleship communities. Groupings are varied and there is a place for everyone to “fit in.”
Note: Our grouping is very flexible. Any adult may attend and participate in any adult class.
A newly-created class, 18-25ish young adults grow in community and grow in faith together. Topics are relevant to young adults. Singles who are working, attending college or grad school or who have just graduated from college and are looking for a place to fit in will feel right at home with this group. Anyone at any phase of their spiritual journey is invited to attend.
