"But Jesus called for them and said, "Let the children come to me, and do not stop them, for it is to such
as these that the kingdom of God belongs." - Luke 18:16

Children are always welcome at Hope Church! Jesus wanted the little children to come to him, and children’s voices and presence are an important part of our worship here at Hope Church. 

It is a place where people of all ages and multiple generations can feel welcome and included! Though all services are family friendly, there are certain times throughout the year when we have services that are specifically geared towards toward children! Some of these services include St. Lucy’s Day and the Christmas Eve Family service and Christmas Pageant!

Vacation Bible School

Our yearly Vacation Bible School Program has been focused on a woodworking theme as we “Build In God” and create wood projects, crafts, hear stories, sing songs and enjoy snacks!

VBS will be held June 17th -20th from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM. Registration is now open!

Youth Outreach Ministry


Our Youth-Led Outreach Ministry is a wonderful way for the children to make an impact on the world at a young age! The children (and adults) place donations in the Ark at the front of the church, and the children get to choose how that money is spent with Heifer International!

Acolyte Program


Out Acolyte program is a great way for kids ages 7 and up to get involved in the worship service! Deacon Nancy holds trainings and refresher courses for youth interested in becoming an Acolyte a few different times during the year. We were thrilled to attend the National Acolyte Festival this fall and look forward to heading there again!

3rd Thursday Youth Ministry - Coming Soon!

Children's Message


Each week before the Sermon, the children are invited up to hear a Children’s Message, which breaks down the message of the day to their level. 

Kids enjoy sharing their thoughts and insight and even give the adults something to think about from time to time!

“Safe Church” requirements for volunteers are available at HERE.
