Hope Families

“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, we offer nursery, tots, kids, and youth environments.

(Learn more about each age group below photos)

 
 

On Sundays, you can check in your baby or young child (ages 0 to 2) on the first floor of our building.  Our nursery is full of toys and room to play, and staffed with trained volunteers who love to care for our littlest members!  Though they do not do diaper changes or feedings, they will play with your child and ensure their safety and comfort.  You are welcome to stay with your child or leave them with our caring volunteers.

Hope Tots

 
 

On Sundays, you can check in your "tot" (ages 3 to Pre-K) on the first floor of the building.  Our Host Team will sign you up whether you're visiting or you'd like to enroll your child, and we will direct you to the Hope Tots Classroom where you're welcome to stay with your child or leave them with trained volunteers.  

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

  • EXPLORE – using crafts and activities to peek interest in the story and reflect on the story.
  • DISCOVER – hear a story with the help of visual aids
  • RESPOND – engage in worship with motions and their voices.
  • BLESS – our volunteers take time to bless and pray for the Tots.

Hope Kids

On Sundays, you can check in your child (ages K to 5th Grade) on the first floor of the building. Our Host Team will sign you up whether you're visiting or you'd like to enroll your child. After check-in, head on upstairs to the worship gathering with your elementary school student for the beginning of the service. We encourage our families to worship together for the first part of the day (15-20min), then during the greeting time kids are invited to come to our kids classroom for a curriculum tailored for them.

Our fun Hope Kids curriculum includes an engaging Bible Study, prayer and activties such as crafts and games to help the kids connect further with that day's Bible passage.

On Sundays, you can check in your youth on the first floor of the building. After check-in, head on upstairs to the worship gathering with your middle schooler for the beginning of the service. We encourage our families to worship together for the first part of the day (15-20min), then during the greeting time middle schoolers are invited to come to our youth classroom for a curriculum tailored for them.
