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

    Dear Parents,

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

    Please note: Children are not required to wear masks while at Hope Chapel.

    You can check your kids in when you first arrive by going to the Coffee Shop and using the check-in kiosk there. Classes for Babies, Toddlers and Twos begin just before 10am, so once your little ones are checked in, just walk them down the hallway to their classrooms. Older kids will be released to their classes after worship; just listen for the special song.

    What COVID precautions are we taking? Our large classrooms are clean and sanitized. Hand sanitizer is available in abundance, and teachers are wearing face coverings while in class.

    Remember: if anyone in your home has been sick, your whole family should stay home this week.

    Contact Hala if you have further questions!

  2. Children’s Baptism Class on July 25

    Hello Parents of Hope!

    If your child has been asking about being baptized this year, please plan on attending two classes with Matt Ryniker and Hala Tompkins on July 25 and August 8. We’ll begin at 9:30am in the Family Room.

    Designed for children aged eight and older, these two classes are designed to help parents and kids determine together if this is the right year for baptism. Because of this, parents are asked to attend class with their children each week and childcare will be provided upon request. Details for the baptism service will be set once participants are confirmed.

    Contact Hala if you have more questions or would like to sign up for the class.

  3. Come watch The Pilgrim’s Progress on March 20

    Just in time for spring break:

    Hope Chapel has been chosen as a pre-release location of the new movie, The Pilgrim’s Progress. We’ll play on the playground and eat dinner outside starting at 5. The movie will begin at 6:15 in the sanctuary. Bring a friend!

    Contact Emily Harris for more details.

  5. Babysitting 101 coming again in 2019

    We’ll take sign ups for our second Babysitting 101 class starting in January. Check back here for updates.


    Calling all kids aged 9 and older. Do you enjoy being with little kids but wish you had more skills in order to take care of them? Are you an older brother or sister who needs ideas on how to keep your younger siblings entertained and out of trouble? Do you want little kids to follow your instructions?

    Join Ariel Czerwinski and Hala Tompkins for Babysitting 101 on Saturday, August 18, from 9-10:30am. Topics to be covered include:

    • How to create a plan for your babysitting assignment (ideas for activities, crafts and games).
    • What information you need before parents walk out of the house (emergency contact info and allergy info form).
    • What to do if someone gets an “owie” ? (Basic first aid and when to call 911.)
    • Why “stranger danger” is a good thing. (Safety and common sense.)

    Kids who complete the class will leave with a Babysitting Resource Kit and a certificate of completion.
