Hope Tots is our environment for children 2 years old to PreK.
What to Expect at Hope Tots
On Sundays, you can check in your "Tot" 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.
Curriculum for Hope Tots: Show Me Jesus
By the time a child is five years old, we want them to know:
God Made Me
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
God Loves Me
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
God is With Me
"…And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
Every week, we provide an “At Home” page. This is a snapshot of what we covered each week with an age-appropriate "Read to me Bible story" included.
