  1. Children’s Baptism Classes Scheduled for July 30 and August 6

    If your child/ren have expressed a desire to be baptized this year, here’s the latest info for you:

    The baptism classes (taught by Pastor Matt)  are now scheduled for Saturdays, June 30 and August 6, from 9:30-11. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend these classes with their children. Childcare is provided by contacting Hala.

    The baptism service will be on August 14. This service will be followed by an outdoor water fun day on our playground, as is our custom.

    Remember that we’ve designed the baptism classes to help parents decide whether or not their children are ready for baptism. If you are unsure about whether or not this is the right year, class number one will help you decide.

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

    Let Hala know if you have any kid-related questions!

  3. HopeKids Classes at 10am Service– What to Expect

    We are happy to be able to provide in-person classes for kids of all ages on Sunday mornings! Here’s what to expect when you arrive 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.

    During the summer, from Memorial Day through Labor Day, keep your kids with you during the worship portion of the service. After worship, kids will be released to their classes, which will last for the duration of the service.
