Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

Partnering with parents to teach our children to know, love, and serve God

We offer a safe, loving, and fun environment for kids to learn God’s Word and grow in relationship with Him. We have classes during our 10:00am service on Sunday mornings, nursery through 5th grade.

Our children sing songs, make crafts, play games, laugh, and enjoy one another all with a very intentional purpose. Our desire is to partner with parents to teach our children to know, love, and serve God. We believe children are capable of knowing Jesus in a deep way.

Our heart is that all children who attend HopeKids on a weekly basis will engage in Christ-centered lessons and experience the hope we have in Jesus.
We believe that when kids experience the Gospel they will be changed.

The first Sunday of each month is Family Sunday! On these Sundays, we have children in kindergarten and above remain in the main service. Worship and the message are intentionally planned to connect with the entire family on these Sundays. Research shows that parents are the greatest influencers in a child’s spiritual growth, even during the teen years. Our long-range goal is our children remaining in the faith and fellowship for the rest of their lives; come worship with us!

Sunday Morning Check-Ins

Check-in Time

Check-in begins at 9:45am. The service itself starts at 10:00am and ends around  11:30am.

First Time Visitors

Our check-in team will help you sign in with our check-in system, where you and your child(ren) will receive security stickers. You must present your portion of the security sticker at pickup before we release your child.

Special Needs

We offer a ministry for children who may benefit from additional help in the classroom or service. Check out our AccessHope page for more info, and contact us so we can develop a plan to best support your child as they attend HopeKids classes or accompany you to the service.


Several of our students have food allergies.  Please do not let your children bring any outside food into their classrooms. We provide a snack of goldfish or cheerios in nursery-preschool.  Please let the check-in team and your children’s teachers know if they have any food restrictions.
