Sunday School

Jr. & Sr. High Youth Sunday School meets in the Large Youth Room at 9 am. This is an opportunity to fellowship, grow, and learn together as we study the book of Genesis, discuss challenging life questions, as well as encourage and pray for one another.


Bible Quiz Team

Bible Quiz Team combines travel, fun, and friendships with memorizing and study of God’s Word. This program is for youth 12 to 18 years of age. They meet on Sundays at 11 am, September through June, compete with local teams monthly throughout the year, and end the year with participation in Bible Quizzing Finals.

Girls’ Computer Programming Club

Thank you for your interest in Girls Who Code, a free programming club for girls, ages 10 to 17! Girls Who Code is a national organization that teaches girls from 4th to 12th grades helpful life skills through fun computer programming activities. This is a fun way to build computer literacy, problem solving, and communication skills, to learn how to program your own games and websites, and to learn about many career opportunities in computer programming and information technology.

Girls are encouraged to bring their laptops, although a laptop is provided for girls that do not have one, and the club meets weekly in the Fall and Spring on Mondays from 6 to 7:30 pm.

Last year, all the girls made their own website and, the Harrisburg Club made an app for the PA State Museum called “Hall of Mammals”. You can find it on the Play store or the Apple store.

Enrollment is currently closed for Fall 2019. For more information about Girls Who Code or the Girls’ Computer Programming at HBIC or how to register for the Winter/Spring 2020 session, please contact Lin Taylor.
