Sunday School for All Ages!
Sunday school will not meet from May 28 through September 3, 2017.
Please check back near the end of summer for the new schedule.
Starting in the fall, HBPres will offer classes for 2 year olds through adults. Sunday School is a ministry that seeks to meet the needs of the entire church family through food, fellowship, Bible study, music, small groups and Sunday school. It is a refreshingly new approach to Sunday school that harkens back to the good ol’ days and brings us together as a church family.

ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL: HBPres UNIVERSITY
Much like college courses, the adult classes will be made up of 2 to 8 week sessions on given topics. Taught by several talented and gifted members of our own congregation, you will not want to miss a single class. We are sorry that you will have to choose between 2 classes that are offered at the same time but we would like all members & visitors to attend our classes so we have to appeal to a wide variety of interests. See below for more information!
HBPres University 2017-2018
Here are some of our plans for the 2017-2018 Program Year!
The Mariners Class
- During the first three weeks of the Fall Sunday School season, we will be looking at two Presbyterian Disaster Assistance topics facilitated by Dave Doehnert. One is about immigration. “Locked in a Box” is an award winning short documentary that follows the stories of individuals held in the U.S. Immigration detention system and those who visit them. The film traces the lives of individuals who fled their homelands in search of safety and freedom only to end up in U.S. prisons under a mandatory bed quota system run by Immigration Customs & Enforcement (ICE).
Study on the Letter of James
- Do you want to live in a way that makes a difference in the world? In this short series on the Letter of James, you will learn more about how to choose roads—and friends—wisely, how to practice “true” religion, and how to stay the course with God in tough times. The leader of the Bible Study will be Dr. Susan R. Garrett, a Harvey Browne member who serves as Dean and Professor of New Testament at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary .
500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation
- What does “Protestant” mean? Who were Martin Luther and John Calvin? What are the differences in worship among Protestants? Who were the Huguenots? What does the Reformation mean for us today? Thoughtfulchristian.com has several Reformation resources written by authors: Chris Elwood, Glen Sunshine and Don Mckim. They provide answers to these questions and many more, providing the essential of the history of the Protestant Reformation.
Between the Testaments
- This course will be an overview of the history of Israel during the roughly 400 years between the Old and New Testaments. We’ll start with return from Babylonian Exile and the building of the Second
Temple, and work our way up to the Roman occupation of Jesus’ day. The study will be largely focused on the events recounted in the Apocryphal books 1 and 2 Maccabees, with other material added to fill out the story. Scott Doelling will be leading this course.
