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

 

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.

On Sundays, there are two primary environments for kids:

1. Hope Tots - Toddler to Pre-K

What to Expect at Hope Tots

On Sundays at our 11:00a service, you can sign in your child on the first floor of the building. After check-in, head  to the worship gathering with your 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 story with the help of our hedgehog friend, “Hamilton.”
RESPOND – engage in worship with instruments and their voices.
BLESS – our volunteers take time to bless and pray for the Tots.

2. Hope Kids - Kindergarten to 5th Grade

What to Expect at Hope Kids:

On Sundays at our 11:00a 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
