The Hampton Park Baptist Church Children’s Ministry exists to glorify God in the church by equipping and assisting parents in their God-ordained role of bringing up their children in the training and instruction of the Lord. We believe that Scripture is the foundation for all such training and instruction. This commitment to Life by the Book leads to Christ-centered, age-appropriate instruction for both parent and child.

The HP nursery exists to serve our body by introducing little ones to Jesus at the earliest age possible. We work hard to maintain a clean, safe, and fun environment for your children, and we recognize that our goals are much bigger than mere babysitting or daycare. It is here in the nursery that we lay a foundation of truth for young children. Our workers demonstrate a loving, gentle approach as a reflection of Christ’s love for little children. All of our workers share a zeal to see children brought to Jesus Christ!
Preschool - Elementary Sunday School
9:30-10:10 a.m. Sunday Mornings
Sunday School is an intentional, age-appropriate teaching time. We emphasize practical application of truths learned in this setting, as well as in other instructional times. The great stories of the Bible are taught with a focus on the cross of Christ. Service to others is highlighted to reinforce the idea that children are an active, vital part of our local body. Faith in Christ is the initial act of worship, and Sunday School is an ideal time to teach and highlight the gospel in a small group setting. Even at a young age, we teach our children to worship God daily by devoting themselves to the Word and to prayer.
Preschool Children's Church
10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Sundays
We believe that children can learn deep truths at a young age because the Holy Spirit is at work in their hearts, opening their eyes to truth. Short, simple lessons plant gospel seeds in the minds of these young children. Teaching is balanced with snack and story time to keep these children engaged in instructional discipleship. We believe that as we plant and water God’s Word, He will bring forth a harvest in the lives of our children.
Elementary Children's Church
10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Sundays
Our 1st-5th grade children’s church emphasizes gospel-centered teaching and preaching. We desire to clarify and define the gospel for children so that they understand the foundation for a right relationship with God. A consistent emphasis on the fruits of conversion helps children understand the results that Christ’s work will have in their lives. Even at this early stage in life children learn to understand the importance of personal conversion and their walk with the Lord. The Bible is primarily about God and His Son Jesus Christ. The stories and storylines of Scripture aren’t just nice moralistic tales. They point to and crescendo in the work of Christ on the cross at Calvary. We teach children an elementary biblical theology of the Old and New Testaments over four years. The focus of this “junior” church is participation in corporate worship, not just stories and entertainment.
5:30 p.m. Sundays
The Kids4Truth program exists to assist parents in discipling their children. Because discipleship is a lifelong process, effective discipleship is impossible without the involvement of parents. We believe that the parents’ role in the home is primary in the discipleship of children. However, the church’s commitment to discipleship is no less necessary for the development of these young members of the body of Christ. Kids4Truth encourages children to memorize Scripture and to learn basic systematic theology that is derived from and vitally connected to the Scriptures. We team with parents through emails, phone calls, and personal contacts. Small group discipleship, Truth Time, and purposeful activities are highlights of our Kids4Truth program. We consistently emphasize a clear presentation of Christ and His work and of the great doctrines of the faith.
