Children’s Church is provided for children in grades 1 – 6 each Sunday morning. The children stay in the sanctuary during the beginning of the Sunday morning service and then are excused for their own time of Bible story and activities for the later part of the service.


Hardwick Baptist Church Camp is held at A. H. Stevens State Park in Crawfordville, GA. Children in grades 1 – 6, as well as the youth, participate in Bible study, worship, crafts, recreation and delicious meals Monday afternoon through Friday morning one week during the summer. This is one of the highlights of the summer for many HBC families.


An Easter egg hunt is held each spring for the children, along with a visit from the Easter bunny.

A church-wide Fall Festival is enjoyed by all. It includes a cook out, bounce house, games, hayride, bonfire and wonderful fellowship. This has been hosted by the Pennington family for the past several years at their country home.

A Christmas party is enjoyed each year for the children. Jolly old St. Nick usually makes an appearance.
