Children’s Ministry

Service Times:

Our Mission: To Love God, Love People and to Serve the World!
 
New Hope believes that each child is special and very important to God. We are committed to providing a quality learning environment where children will experience God’s love. We strive for excellence in all our classes at every level. We believe in the importance of children learning the things of God as they develop a personal relationship with Him.
 
Adventure Kids Church: Is about reaching out to children with the message of Christ’s unconditional love, guiding them to grow into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, nurturing them and encouraging their hearts to serve.
 
What to expect: After bringing your child to class, we play games for a bit then do worship and share a fun Biblical message with your kids. The message is interactive so kids are encouraged to ask and answer questions.
