Adult Education

We at Hamblen believe that growing as a disciple is a lifelong process. Our Adult Education classes and small groups will challenge you to:

  • Grow in your faith, starting wherever you are on your journey with God
  • Learn more about what we as Christians believe, as well as what makes us unique as Presbyterians
  • Build positive relationships and develop skills for the life of faith
  • Think deeply about and apply God's Word to your daily life

We offer a variety of classes on Sunday mornings and throughout the week.

Learn more about specific class offerings by visiting one of the Adult Education blogs. Audiorecordings of past classes and forums can be downloaded at the HPPC audio archive. The "Homosexuality and the Bible" forum from 9/26/11 is now posted!.

On-going small group opportunities also abound for people who desire to grow in faith by connecting with a smaller community. Contact Pastor Betsey if you are interested in joining or starting a small group.

Children's Ministries

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14

Children were important to Jesus and our children are a priority at Hamblen Park Presbyterian Church.

We provide opportunities for our children to meet Christ through our nursery, Sunday School classes, summer Vacation Bible School, mid-week programs, special classes, Kid’s Zone and active participation in our worship services.

Parents and their children are encouraged to attend Sunday School classes during the 9:00 a.m. hour and then participate in the 10:30 a.m. worship service as a family. Children of all ages are welcome into our worship services. Where else are they going to learn to worship God unless they worship with us?

Contact Joe Bruce, Director of Children’s Ministries, for your Children’s Ministry questions or if you would like to volunteer. You can contact Joe in the church office at 448-2909 or at joe@hamblenpres.org.

“Let the children come.”

Lay Ministries

As Presbyterians, we believe

  • God has gifted us to serve,
  • God has led us to a community of faith where our gifts can be identified, nurtured and used
  • That our gifts are needed to do God’s work in God’s world.

Each of us has a unique combination of God-given gifts (talents, interests, personalities, life experiences and resources) that guides us to where and how our Spiritual gifts are needed in our community of faith to be Christ’s hands and feet here in Spokane and around the world.

Lay Ministries helps people discover, develop and use their gifts to be the salt and light wherever they are – in our congregation, communities, workplaces and families.

Discover your gifts through

  • Classes such as “Your Gifts and You”, “Mission Possible” (for 5th graders & their parents) as well as the New Members and Senior High Confirmation classes
  • Testing the waters by getting involved and helping with one of the many opportunities for service
  • Being open to where God is opening doors for you.

Develop your gifts through participation in

  • The many adult learning opportunities and small groups available
  • Training and orientation offered for the ministries you are drawn toward
  • Leadership retreats

Use your gifts in your everyday life.

Music Ministries

In all our music, our focus is to glorify God and enhance the worship experience through inspiring expression of praise.  We serve through our music and in fellowship with one another.  Together we learn, grow, serve, praise and share the message of God’s redeeming love.

The Chancel Choir is the primary vocal music ensemble for worship.  They sing approximately 40 Sundays during the program year and occasionally for special services.

Hallel is a small combo of  instrumentalists and vocalists who lead contemporary praise songs during worship services.  This group leads bi-monthly and once during the summer.

The Chimes Choir is an intergenerational group (6th grade & up) playing hand chimes.  They play periodically for worship services and occasionally for special services.

The Instrumental Ensemble is an intergenerational group of wind, string and percussion instruments.  They provide special music on the Sunday before Christmas and for Easter, as well as on other special occasions.

Music in Children’s Education provides the ministry of teaching children the expression of praise through music.  There are many opportunities available as song leader, assisting leaders, accompanists, instrumentalists and support staff.  Our children’s education ministries include FISH (grades 1-3), KICK (grades 4-6), Sunday School Music and Vacation Bible School.

There is a place in the Hamblen Park Presbyterian music program for anyone who wishes to share in this ministry.

Young Adult Ministries

All twenty-somethings—married or single—gather twice a month: once for a Bible Study and once for fellowship. New people are always welcome. For more information about the group or to receive regular email updates about what the group is doing, contact Pastor Betsey.

Youth Ministries

Hamblen Park Presbyterian Church places a high priority on the Christian education of our youth in junior high and high school. Through our youth program, we provide opportunities to explore and respond to God's love surrounded by peers, and we equip our youth to show God's love to the world.

Hamblen Park's youth program is directed by Katie Stark with assistance from several adult leaders.
