What to Expect on a Sunday Morning
New Hope’s Children’s Ministry, Kid's Central, is a ministry that is specifically focused on children from infancy to 5th grade. Kids meet weekly on Sunday mornings to grow their relationship with Jesus. Kids learn how to foster and begin that relationship by discovering God’s truth through reading scripture, prayer, activities, and by teaching biblical lessons. In Kid's Central children are not only going through the discipleship process for themselves, but to also learn how to be disciples making disciples.
7:45 Service (Birth - 3 Years Old)
9:00 and 10:30 Services (Full Kid's Central)
Our goal is partner with parents to lead their children to be disciples who make disciples. This is done in a variety of ways for each age group. We have age-appropriate classes for kids birth through 5th grade so they can learn about Jesus on their level. Classes are available for all ages at our 9:30am and 11:00am services. Nursery & 2's & 3's are also available at our 8:00am service.
Visiting Kid's Central
If this will be your family's first time visiting and you want to get your child(ren) checked into Kid's Central, you will be asked to fill out our Pre-Registration form. This information will be entered into our database for faster check-in on your next visit.
Your child's safety is important to us. Each week you check in, you'll receive a tag with a randomly assigned number that will be used to pick up your child. If you lose your child's corresponding tag, you will need to present identification to receive your child. Once your child has checked in, you can expect to be welcomed by our Kid's Central Greeter and for your child to experience a safe, fun and engaging environment. In each class kids will learn about God and what the Bible says, grow in relationships with peers, and be encouraged to live out what they've learned and share God’s love with others.
Find the right class for your child
We have a team of volunteers who are excited to greet you and your family on a Sunday morning! We will help you find the correct classes for your child(ren) and introduce you to their teachers. Toddlers - Kid's Church participate in worship and a brief devotion at the beginning of each Sunday service. Here's a breakdown of the classes we offer:
Nursery (Birth - 2 Years Old)
Children will learn that God loves them through songs, prayer, and sensory activities.
Toddlers (2 & 3 Years Old)
We have two separate classes for 2 and 3 year old children. Both classes are in the Nursery and Toddler wing. In these classes, children will grow in their understanding of who God is and what the Bible teaches through lessons, group activities, songs, and prayer.
Preschool (4's and 5's)
Children will grow in their knowledge and understanding of who God is and what the Bible teaches. They will develop an understanding of how to apply the truths in the Bible, and share God’s love with others.
