Children's Ministry Hosensack Evangelical Congregational Church

Sharing the love of God with our children is one of the ways we continue to spread the love of God to the world. Hosensack Church offers a yearly Vacation Bible School program, weekly Junior Church on Sunday mornings, and a weekly Kid's Klub on Wednesday evenings. For more details on our children's ministry options, email us at HosensackGraceEC@gmail.com.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is usually held in late July or early August. Each year varies depending on the calendar. Specific dates are advertised in the church bulletin and by mass mailings in the Spring. Join us for a fun-filled week of laughter, games, crafts, songs, and plenty of Bible learning. Our Vacation Bible School program is uniquely designed by Hosensack Church volunteers, making it a fun and new experience each year.

We welcome young people of any age to join us for a great time of learning and fun this summer!  This year it would be very helpful for our planning if the children could be preregistered.  Please register by Wednesday, July 29th by calling Pastor Bob at  215-541-1144 or sending an email to rklersy@juno.com.  It is our plan to have all the activities outdoors.  Please pray for good weather!

As you might imagine, the Covid-19 pandemic has presented many difficulties for our planning this year.  We feel the need to be in compliance with all Pennsylvania Department of Health and CDC guidelines, yet feel a compelling desire to minister to the young people this summer.  Balancing these two priorities has not been easy.

Therefore, the way we are planning VBS this year is to radically change our normal procedures.  Instead of rotating the kids through various stations, we will rotate the staff.  This year we are asking all our VBS families to bring a blanket and/or lawn chairs.  We will arrange these in family groups in the ball field under the shade of the big tree, thus maintaining proper social distancing.  The staff will rotate in and out of the area to provide the story, singing, recreation, etc.  We will be obtaining an outdoor sound system so everyone can hear.  Doing things this way will not require the use of masks.

We hope you will join us for this experiment.  There will certainly be adjustments to be made, but we hope this will be a fun time for all.  We strongly encourage parents to join us.  Please note that the time has been adjusted.  A porta-potty will be on site equipped with hand sanitizer.

Again, please feel free to call Pastor Bob at 215-541-1144 for additional information, and preregistration is requested by July 29th.  Hope to see you here at VBS 2020!

Junior Church

While spending your time with God on a Sunday morning, your child (5th grade and under) can receive their own learning experience during our weekly Junior Church. Activities include a Bible lesson, a craft, snacks, and more.

Children and Youth

Children ages 4 to 18 can enjoy fellowship and learning together during Kid's Klub at Hosensack Church. Our Kid's Klub meets Wednesdays from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Our Youth Fellowship enjoys periodic activities and trips as scheduled. View our events.

Many of our young people enjoy a great week of summer camp at our denomination retreat center Twin Pines located in the beautiful Pocono Mountains. The church endeavors to raise money through various fundraisers throughout the year in order to greatly defray the cost of attending camp. Nothing will impact a child's life like a week at camp!

All youth workers at Hosensack Church are required to maintain valid clearances in accordance with Pennsylvania State regulations. Every group activity is required to have a minimum of two unrelated adults in attendance.
