Updates from the Children's Ministry.

  1. Parent & Child Dedication Class

    Dear Parents of Hope,

    Have you recently added a child to your household? Is it time for you to dedicate yourself to raising this little person in ways that honor the Lord Jesus? Are you looking for support and encouragement as you labor to create a Christian home for your family?

    You are invited to join Pastor Matt Ryniker in a conversation about why we dedicate our children and how we can walk out our commitment faithfully. We’ll also discuss common parenting issues and have a time of questions and answers. Couples are encouraged to attend these classes together.

    We will meet on Wednesday, October 25 from 6-7:30pm.

    The dedication service is scheduled for Sunday, November 12, 2023

    Sign up for the classes and childcare by contacting Hala.

  2. HopeKids Classes at 10am Service — What to Expect on Sunday Morning

    Dear Parents,

    The HopeKids ministry is happy to be able to provide classes for kids of all ages on Sunday mornings! Currently our HopeKids classes start at 10am and includes age-appropriate worship for all ages. Here’s what to expect this Sunday.

    When you arrive, a greeter will escort you to the coffee shop. There you will find the HopeKids kiosk and check in station. One of our friendly volunteers will be glad to get your kids registered and checked in for the morning.

    Feel free to accompany your children to class and then participate in the adult worship service. Pick your kids up from their classroom when the service ends.

    We look forward to meeting you and your kids this Sunday at Hope Chapel!

  3. Classroom Helper Training — August 27

    All junior high and high school students who want to help in Sunday morning HopeKids’ classes are invited to join Mrs. Hala for a brief training session following the Sunday Service on August 27. We’ll discuss what makes a helper truly great, how to become a regular helper, and what other opportunities are available for those who want to serve but not in a classroom.

    We will meet in the Lighthouse at 12:00 and be done by 1pm.

    RSVP to Mrs. Hala or just show up. All are welcome.

  4. Children’s Baptism Classes Coming in May

    Dear Parents of Hope,

    If your child/ren have expressed a desire to be baptized this year please plan on attending two classes designed to help kids and parents prepare for the service. If you are unsure about whether or not this is the right year, class number one will help you decide.

    The baptism classes (taught by Pastor Matt)  are scheduled for May 20 and June 3 from 9:30-11. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend these classes with their children.

    The baptism service will be on June 11 will be followed by an outdoor water fun day on our playground, as is our custom.

    Adults who would like to be baptized should simply contact Pastor Matt. He will be happy to talk with you!

    Contact Hala to sign up for class (and childcare for younger kids) or if you have any other questions!



  5. Good Friday + HopeKids Program Registration Link

    Our Good Friday service includes music and meditations on the seven sayings of Jesus at His crucifixion. It is always a very beautiful and poignant time. This service is “rated PG-13” and therefore we run a meaningful HopeKids program during the same service for our younger congregants. Registration is required in order for your children to participate in the program.

    You can sign your children up for the HopeKids program on Realm or by clicking here.

    Contact Hala with questions.

This class is part of the preparation for our Parent & Child Dedication service on June 12, but you do not have to have a new baby or participate in the dedication service in order to attend this class.
