Hope Kids

Hope Kids exists to lead kids into
the life-giving presence of God.

Age appropriate activities are available during all services. Each area strives to partner with parents in developing an approach that will make children feel welcome and ready to engage. Our environments are filled with energy, love and acceptance. We teach children to know that God loves them as well as what can happen when they show that love to others.

NURSERY (BIRTH - 23 MONTHS)

While parents enjoy the adult services, they can rest assured that their babies are being held, rocked and receiving personal care in our safe and nurturing environment. We introduce even our littlest ones to the love of Jesus. We sing to them and we speak a monthly scripture over them knowing the word of the Lord never returns back void.

PRESCHOOL (2 YEARS - 4 YEARS)

Preschoolers love to learn, which is why each preschool classroom provides interactive learning experiences in a colorful and engaging atmosphere. At HOPE Kids each week we gather the preschoolers for a time of assembly. We worship with age-appropriate music videos, interactive bible story and memory verse illustration with motions. Preschoolers learn God’s Word in bite-size bits. We offer classrooms for 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, and 4-year-olds. Our desire while they play and interact with their friends is that they will learn that God loves them and cares about them.

ELEMENTARY (5K – 5th GRADE)

Elementary aged kids are checked in at the check-in kiosk. If you’re a guest, we’ll help you get acquainted at the guest side of the kiosk. Greeters will accompany you to your child’s room and answer any questions you may have.

HOPE ELEMENTARY ASSEMBLY

In the classroom, kids will experience kid led worship, prayer, Bible stories, memory verses, games, and activities all designed to help them grow in relationship with Jesus and each other.

During the 1st service, all of our elementary kids worship together in the assembly area and all ages are picked up in this room.

During the 2nd service, all of our elementary kids worship together in the assembly area and then attend a grade specific Bible teaching. Ages 5K-2nd grade will be picked up in their classroom. Ages 3rd-5th grade will be picked up in the assembly area.

On Wednesday nights, all elementary aged kids worship, learn, and play together in the assembly area.

SECURITY

Your child’s safety is important to us. Each week you check your child in, you will receive a randomly assigned number that will be used to pick up your child. If you lose your child’s corresponding tag, you’ll need to present identification to pick up your child.

ALLERGIES

If your child has food or environmental allergies, that information will be entered into our computer and will print on your child’s name tag each time you check in. Make sure to let us know of any unique concerns at check-in.

BAPTISM

Our elementary kids join the adults in the auditorium for our baptism services. If your child would like to be water baptized, you can sign them up online and attend a short class with them.

SPECIAL NEEDS

Our special needs ministry, supports parents and families with elementary aged special needs children. Each Sunday during the second service, a trained volunteer will sit with special needs kids in the elementary service. This volunteer will help your child participate in the service, use intervention strategies to help your child stay focused, and help your child to make friends in the elementary area.

The ministry for elementary aged kids with special needs is available on Sunday morning during the second service.
