Summer at HP Pres

We are looking forward to an amazing summer here at HP Pres for children and their families! We have brand new camps as well as some of the great things we have done for years like VBS, mission trips, weekly Bible studies, and family events. Our hope is that this summer gives your family opportunities to connect with each other, with other families, to Christ, and our church. We hope you will make amazing memories along the way. So dig into the summer fun and thank you for letting us be a part of your plans! – The Highland Kids Ministry Team
