Hope Kids

Hope-Kids-Slide-Graphic-2019

We have a high view of kids, because Jesus has a high view of kids.


“Let the children come to me for theirs is the Kingdom of God.”

Jesus says this in response to adults who tried to stop the children from running to Him. Because of this, we want Hope Church to be a community where kids are welcomed and encouraged to grow in Jesus. 


A holistic ministry to our kids.

Head

We teach our children God’s Story in age appropriate and memorable ways. Each week they will learn why Jesus is the hero in every Bible passage they explore.

Heart: 

We aim to engage our children’s hearts with the warmth and joy of the gospel. We want them to experience the welcome of Jesus.

Hands: 

We engage in our kids with gospel practices, like teaching our children how to pray, showing them what obedience looks like in tangible ways at their life stage, etc. Deep practices that are in joyful response to the good news of Jesus.

Our Commitment to Child Protection

As a GRACE certified church, we will do all we can to protect the vulnerable, care for those who are survivors, and hold abusers accountable.

Important Information for Hope Kids Nursery

We are happy to offer Nursery care for our youngest (ages 0-3) Hope Kids.

Nursery is held in the hallway right outside of our Sunday worship room. Every child in the nursery will be checked in and out via our convenient check-in system. Be sure to stop by the ipad at our entryway to register your baby for nursery care, then feel free to drop off your baby at any time during our Sunday morning worship service.

 For the protection and wellness of the children, our nursery workers will be masked and toys and books will be cleaned and sanitized weekly.

 A few other things to know:

-Babies must be sitting up on their own to be in nursery without a parent

-Parents are welcome to stay with their child in our nursery space, or pop in and out as needed

-Babies who are sick are asked to stay out of nursery until they are symptom free for 24 hrs previous to Sunday morning

-Diapers must be changed by a parent/caregiver. Parents will be texted if this is a need during service
