WEEKENDS

Children age 3 through 5th grade are encouraged to attend children's church during our Saturday and Sunday worship gatherings. Parents are asked to check in their child at the Hope Kids counter in our children's wing (east entrance). Children begin their time together as a group in room 100 singing praise to our God in a fun, kid-friendly way. Kids are then dismissed to age appropriate classes for a Bible story, prayer and games. They return to room 100 near the end of the service, where parents may pick them up following the adult worship time. 


WEDNESDAY NIGHTS

From September through April, Awana Clubs meets on Wednesday nights at the church. Kids age 3 through 5th grade will pray, study the Bible, memorize scripture, and play games. 


VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

At VBS each summer, Hope buzzes with energy as hundreds of children play, sing, create, and learn just how much God loves them! This year's theme was SHIPWRECKED. Check back next spring for information on VBS 2019.

AWANA CLUBS

Wednesday nights from 6-7:30 p.m.

For kids age 3 through 5th grade

Awana is a weekly program for kids in a welcoming, supportive environment where kids from every background learn how a personal relationship with Christ affects their everyday lives.


Awana reaches kids where they’re at and walks alongside them in their faith journey. Those kids who come to faith at an early age discover God’s purpose for their lives and hope for the future. Using scripture-based programs and exciting games, Awana promotes Bible literacy and help kids grow and develop as lifelong disciples of Christ.

AVAILABLE DURING WEEKEND WORSHIP SERVICES

Our nursery is for the "birth to two-year-old" age group. 


All parent/guardians should check in their child at the welcome booth in the children's wing (east entrance) and fill out a child information page. This information page makes us aware of any special needs or concerns and ensures children are released only to someone approved for pick-up by the parent or guardian. Our well-baby policy ensures the safety and well being of other children. 

"You are my refuge and my shield; 

I have put my hope in your word." 

-Psalm 119:114 (NIV)
