Children& Youth

Jr Disciples

Open to children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. We meet on Tuesday nights from 5:30-7:00 for fellowship, faith and fun. Each week we come together for a meal, music, games and crafts while we are learning about our faith. The Jr Disciples maintain the courtyard garden as part of their mission; selling produce to church members and using their resources to support mission work of their choosing. Our current goal is to raise $250.00 to help a school in Haiti build their own garden (project sponsored by the Presbyterian Mission Agency). Our current session will run March 29, 2022. For more information please contact [email protected] or call the church at 757 596-1151.

Youth Fellowship

The Youth Fellowship program at Hidenwood Presbyterian offers a space for youth, grades 6-12, to come together, share stories, and grow in their personal faith. We are currently meeting on the first and third Sunday’s of the month at 4:00 in McKeithen Hall and the group moves to various rooms in the church based on planned activity for the evening. For more information, please contact Carey Gerstner.


We currently do not have a confirmation class in progress. For more information about confirmation at Hidenwood please contact Carey Gerstner.

Children’s God & Family Program

The God and Church program through scouting will ultimately lead to earning the God and Church emblem. The program will explore a young person’s faith journey in three parts: meeting Jesus, worshiping God, and witnessing and ministering for Christ. This program is conscious of different denominational theology, and individual religious exposure will be taken into consideration.

Flower Guild

There is a flower calendar (sign-up sheet) on the kiosk in the narthex. You may reserve a date simply by writing your name on an open date on this calendar. If you would like the Flower Guild to prepare the flowers for you, please note “FG” by your name on the calendar. If you wish to use a florist, please note that on the calendar instead.

We look forward to arranging flowers in memory or in honor of loved ones or to celebrate a special anniversary, graduation, birth of a child or grandchild, or other special days.


We believe that the arts are an integral part of our worship and the life of our community. With this in mind, the music and fine arts ministry at Hidenwood Presbyterian Church is dedicated to providing opportunities for everyone – old or young, advanced or beginner, musician or non-musician – to express their faith in ways meaningful to them. 

Sanctuary Choir

We are currently searching for a new Director of Music Ministry. Currently our choir is practicing on Sundays after worship from 12:00-1:00 pm in the music room.  The choir leads the congregation in the traditional worship service every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and at special services throughout the year, and presents seasonal major works and concerts. The Sanctuary Choir performs a wide variety of repertoire, from classical to contemporary, hymn arrangements to black gospel. Any person able to match pitch and carry a tune is invited to join – no audition or musical ability required!


Currently our handbell group is on hold pending the search for a new music director.
