OUR VISION FOR FAMILIES

We believe that what happens at home is more important than what happens at church.

Therefore, we try to resource and come alongside parents and caretakers by providing engaging environments for their children on Sundays.  We also hope to create opportunities for families to connect to each other.

NOTE: Currently there are Hope Nursery/Tots/Kids Programs (Infant-5th) during the 10:00a service ONLY (no Nursery/Tots/Kids Programs during the 11:30a Service or the 5:00p Hope Nights)


Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
— Matthew 19:14

HOPE NURSERY

(Infant - Toddler)

WHAT TO EXPECT

On Sundays at our 10am service, you can sign in your child on the first floor of the building. After check-in, head to the worship gathering with your kids for the beginning of the service. We want families to worship together for the first part of the day. After 15-20 minutes, you may bring your infant to the Nursery environment in the basement level.

During the service, our Nursery will be in the same environment as our Tots so that they can also be included in hearing the worship songs and the God story. We consider it important for even our littlest ones to experience the joy of the Lord as our older children would.

They will remain in the designated Nursery area where our volunteers will have toys available for them.

 

HOPE TOTS

(Toddler - Pre-K)

WHAT TO EXPECT

On Sundays at our 10am service, you can sign in your child on the first floor of the building. After check-in, head  to the worship gathering with your kids for the beginning of the service. We want families to worship together for the first part of the day. After 15-20 minutes, your child will be dismissed to our tots environment in the basement level.

During the service, our Tots have a busy morning, full of the Big God Story, songs, crafts, and a small snack. Each week, they will:

EXPLORE – use tactile learning to peek interest in the story.
DISCOVER – hear a God story through read-alouds and/or video presentations.
RESPOND – engage in worship with music and their voices.
BLESS – our volunteers take time to bless and pray for the Tots.

 

HOPE KIDS

(Kindergarten - 5th Grade)

WHAT TO EXPECT

On Sundays at our 10:00a service, you can sign in your child on the first floor of the building. After check-in, head to the worship gathering with your elementary school student for the beginning of the service. We want families to worship together for the first part of the day. After 15-20 minutes, your child will be dismissed to our kids environment where your child will be led into the Kids room back on the basement level. 

Each week, our Hope Kids:

CONNECT- with each other and their leaders
GATHER – to hear from the BIG GOD STORY
RESPOND – to what the Holy Spirit is teaching them through creative worship
ENGAGE – with each other through fun and energizing games
BLESS – be blessed and prayed for by their leader each week to live out what they have just learned
