Children’s Ministries

Children’s Ministries at Hope of Christ consists of our nursery, Kidz of Hope (children’s Sunday School), and Backyard Bible Camp.  Children’s Ministry is one facet of the discipleship ministry at Hope of Christ.  We are not just providing childcare while parents are being taught/trained/equipped.  This is one of our opportunities to teach and train our children to know their creator God and their need of redemption through the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Our children are the next generation in God’s Kingdom.

Children’s Ministry Purpose Statement

Hope of Christ Children’s Ministry seeks to support our church and families by showing children how to glorify God by knowing Jesus Christ, growing in grace, and going into the world with hope.

Children’s Ministry Vision Statement

Hope of Christ Children’s Ministry desires to encourage children to know their creator God and their need of redemption through the gospel of Jesus Christ.  We work toward this goal by immersing them in Scripture and teaching them how to pray, worship, and learn to love their neighbors as they grow in their understanding of God’s grace.  We also encourage and support families through discipleship and offering practical support as they seek to instruct their children in the precepts of the Holy Scriptures.

We offer:

  1. Nursery (birth – 3 yr. old) during both Worship and Sunday School.
  2. Kidz of Hope – Sunday School for 2 yr. old – 5th grade
  3. Lamp Lighters – monthly Scripture memory program

In addition to Hope of Christ’s offerings on Sunday mornings with nursery and Kidz of  Hope, a number of times a year we host events that you can enjoy with your kids and invite neighbors, friends, and family to come as well.  These include Family Fun Nights, the Fall Festival in October, and Backyard Bible Camp every summer.

Psalm 78:1-7

“Give ear, O my people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth!  I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings from of old, things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us.  We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.  He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers to teach their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God.”

Deuteronomy 6:4-9

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.  And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.  You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.  You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.  You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
