Our Programs

For Children and Youth


Babies to Toddlers

Nursery for infants through 4 Years

Babies and toddlers age 0 to 4 yrs. are welcome at any time during the church service. We are equipped with changing tables, cribs, toys and a nursing area to accommodate all needs and levels of child development. Toddlers will have a snack time.

Before the Service

Please check in your child at the Children's Check-in Desk/Welcome Table and apply a nametag using the 2-part tag. Additional specialty labels are available for notating: “Allergies”, “This Item Belongs To”, and “Potty Training.” Please alert us if there are any medical concerns that we may need to be aware of.

Security

For your child’s safety, all Hope 4 Kids teachers and helpers have gone through a screening process that includes a background check prior to being involved in this ministry team. Hope Church adheres to a minimum 2-adult policy. During the children’s ministry program, your child will be with at least 2 adults at all times. We make every effort to ensure the safety of our children while at Hope Church.

After the Service

Present your corresponding numbered tag to the class teacher to pick up your child. Only parents with the correct tag can retrieve your child. With your permission, siblings of age 12 and older with the correct tag may be allowed to pick up your child from their class.


Hope 4 Kids

Pre K -5th grade

Our children are considered "The Importat People" at Hope. After worshiping with their families in the first half of the service, the children are welcomed forward for a "chat" with the pastor, after which they go to Hope 4 Kids to learn about God's love and God's Word on their level. Snacks and crafts, games and stories.

Before the Service

Please check in your child at the Children's Check-in Desk/Welcome Table and apply a nametag using the 2-part tag. Additional specialty labels are available for notating: “Allergies”, “This Item Belongs To”, and “Potty Training.” Please alert us if there are any medical concerns that we may need to be aware of.

During the Service

Your child will remain with you for the beginning of the service. The pastor will invite “the important people” to come forward for a special children’s chat. After that time, the children depart to their classes. We don’t require children to attend Hope 4 Kids and it is perfectly fine if your child wishes to remain with you. In fact, we have activity packs available at Children’s check-in area if you would like to borrow one. Please note that all children in the Hope 4 Kids program will receive a snack during this time. Please let us know if you child has any allergies. *If it is your child’s first time to their class, you are welcome to escort them to their class if you desire.

We also do alot of other stuff, like youth retreats, paintball parties, talent shows, mission trips, bowling...the list goes on.

Check the church calendar for dates and times for our youth group gatherings.
