Sunday School for All Ages!
HBPres offers classes for 2 year olds through adults. Jubilee is the our Sunday school ministry at HBPres. Jubilee 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.
9:30-Breakfast in Eline Hall
9:45 Classes Begin for everyone
TOGETHER WITH JESUS CLASS: Infants-3 year olds & their parents/grandparents
PRE-K & K CLASS
1st – 5th GRADE CLASS
These three classes will be using PCUSA curriculum: Growing in Grace and Gratitude which is rooted in Bible stories that reveal God’s grace. Children and their leaders will celebrate the meaning of this grace in their lives as they encounter a living God. Through fun activities, prayer and singing, children will gather in God’s grace and learn how to respond joyfully in gratitude.
6th & 7th GRADE CLASS
The Groove. Small-group Bible study series invites teens to learn the essentials of their faith, own their story, and engage the world in serving Jesus. Each easy-to-lead study consists of four weekly sessions that relate to life issues teens face such as: relationships, dilemmas, and grace among others. The youth will keep a student journal with questions and devotions.
We will be using PCUSA curriculum We Believe: Professing Our Faith. We will also use outside resources in lieu of following the book as it is laid out. We will be involving other leaders beside Kim Cabrera and Terry Hargrave throughout the year. For example, Tim Cargal will lead a 3 week segment on the Old Testament and Bill Williamson might lead the New Testament segment in the spring. John Roper may lead the sessions on Jesus and Ben Blake might lead lessons on the Holy Spirit. It will be an exciting class for all who are involved!
2017 Confirmation Class:
HIGH SCHOOL CLASS
A branch of the thoughtfulchristian.org: INFORMED. These sessions for older youth are taken from an on-line resource center for bibles studies, topic based studies and every day discussions such as: bullying, peer pressure, alcohol and drug abuse among others. These sessions explore relevant matters in a theological, yet simplified manner. Adolescence is a time of identity formation and these studies help older youth explore who they are as Christians and who they are as children of God living in a chaotic world.
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL: HBPres UNIVERSITY
Much like college courses, the adult classes will be made up of 2 to 8 week sessions on topics such as: Old Testament & New Testament 101, Stewardship, Hymns, The Confessions, the Book of Esther, the Stained Glass Windows in our Sanctuary and Bad Girls of the Bible. 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 to attend our classes so we have to appeal to a wide variety of interests.

Breakfast at 9:30 a.m. All classes begin at 9:45 a.m.
HBPres University Spring Session
Spring Term #2 April 23 – May 28
The Book of Ecclesiastes – In the Living Room
For this second six weeks let’s see if there is any hopefulness in Ecclesiastes. Is the song “Turn, Turn, Turn” by the Byrds the only thing you know about Ecclesiastes? Then join us starting April 23-May 28 as Ray Waddle, in his book Against the Grain, grapples with the entire book of Ecclesiastes and shares his insights and ponderings on issues like biblical authority, politics, grief, wisdom, and spiritual trends in contemporary society. We will be skipping around but will cover all 12 chapters by the end of May.” Led by: The Mariners Class
Holding Onto Faith When God Seems Far Away – Room 216 (through May 21st)
Come and learn about the court stories of Daniel. Scott Doelling will be discussing the first 6 chapters of the Book of Daniel along with Susanna and Bel & The Dragon from the Apocrypha. Led by: Scott Doelling
Please note: On May 28th, Jeff & Christy Boyd, Mission Co-Workers we support, will give a presentation in this room.
Scriptures We Skip: – In the Session Room
Too often we skip passages in the Bible that reflect life in all its fullness. There are passages that are horrifying, sexy, and glorious. Stories tell of rulers abusing their power and others where influential people are called to make the right decision. Join Bill Williamson for this sweep through the scriptures.
