Updates from the Children's Ministry.

  1. Parent/Child Dedication Class Coming in October

    Dear Parents of Hope,

    Have you had a baby recently or added a member to your family through adoption? Our next Parent/Child Dedication service is scheduled for Sunday, November 13 and you are welcome to participate.

    As part of the preparation process, you are invited to join Pastor Matt Ryniker and Children’s Ministry Director, Hala Tompkins for an evening of encouragement and equipping as you prepare to dedicate the newest member of your family to the Lord Jesus. We will meet on Wednesday, October 26 from 6-7:30 pm at Hope Chapel.

    Sign up for the class and childcare by contacting Hala today!

  2. Children’s Baptism Classes Scheduled for September

    If your child/ren have expressed a desire to be baptized this year and could not participate in the August baptism service, here is another opportunity:

    The baptism classes (taught by Pastor Matt)  are scheduled. Class one will meet on September 17 from 9:30-11. Class two will meet on Wednesday, September 28, from 6-7:30pm. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend these classes with their children. Childcare is provided by contacting Hala.

    The baptism service will be on October 9 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.

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

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