HCC Kids Reopening


10/13/21 UPDATE: Children’s Ministry leadership has decided that all in-person Children’s Ministry programs (for 3-year olds to 5th Graders) will further be postponed past November 2021. This is due to current pandemic conditions as well as maintenance of HCC’s 2nd floor air-conditioning system. The leadership will reevaluate the 2nd week of November as to when the new projected reopening date will be and email the update when it is confirmed. 

Any inquiries on reopening schedule and future changes should be directed to Mr. Frank, frankt@hcchome.org.
