Updates from the Children's Ministry.

  1. AtHome Weekly available online for parents

    Dear Parents,

    As a way to partner with you as you disciple your children, we are happy to provide you with a PDF of the AtHome Weekly handout.

    AtHome Weeklies are far more than a “Take-Home” page: they allow you to pre-teach the Bible lesson that will be taught next Sunday morning in our kids’ classes at Hope Chapel.  They are a valuable tool which can equip you to be the primary nurturers of your children’s faith in your home during the week.

    Take some time this week to read through the scripture passages and do a couple of the activities with your children. You’ll be glad you did!

  2. What to Expect on Sundays

    The remodel is over and all of our kids’ classes are being held in the education wing of our main building again. Please join us for the fun as we reacquaint ourselves with the familiar spaces that are new again.

    Your first stop on Sunday morning should be at a HopeKids Check In Kiosk. You will find one in the Family Room and another in the coffee shop. Print out name tags for each of your kids fifth grade and younger. Each child in our program needs to wear a nametag to class.

    Classes for kids in Kindergarten and younger are on the ground floor. The rooms are marked to make it simple to find the one you need. Elementary classes are held upstairs and are also be labeled.

    Children preschool-aged and younger can be checked in and brought to their classrooms at 9:55 on Sunday. Kindergarten and elementary grades will worship with parents and then be released to their classes.

    As always, there will be friendly people in blue HopeKids t-shirts to help you in any way needed.

    Let the celebrations begin!

     

  3. Parent/Child Dedication Classes coming in February

    Calling all new parents! Have you had a baby in the past few months or years? Have you considered publicly dedicating your child to the Lord Jesus? Do you have questions about how to create a Christian home?

    Plan to join Pastor Geno Hildebrandt and Children’s Ministry Director Hala Tompkins for two classes on Saturday, February 2 and 9, 2019. We will discuss the significance of child dedication, parents’ responsibilities in raising their children in the “fear and admonition of the Lord” and how to bless your children. We’ll also talk about Christian parenting and creating a Christian home. Couples are encouraged to attend these classes together.

    Sign up for the classes and childcare by completing the form below.

    We are sorry the time for reserving childcare has passed.
