Children are an integral and important part of our church family at Community of Hope. Our children’s events, activities and programs are fun, safe places for kids. It is our goal to provide growth with purpose for our kids.
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Mark 10:14
Read Aloud Videos
We have a list of read aloud videos that have been created by one of our church members. He shares Bible stories, Magic Tree House tales, and non-fiction books about the moon, manatees, volcanoes, and more. Click HERE to see a list of all of them and watch with your family!
Community of Hope offers a Sunday morning children’s ministry from September through May. Children from 3 years old through 5th Grade meet during our 10:30 am worship service. Children begin with their families in the sanctuary, then after the children’s message leave to go to their Kids Church class. During Kids Church they experience age-appropriate lessons using Bible stories, music, crafts and games. Kids Church is open to all children at any stage in their Christian education. We are using a curriculum called The Story. Sunday School includes craft projects and games focused on Bible lessons. We also include snacks, music and worship time, birthday celebrations, and last but definitely not least loving teachers. All of our volunteers and staff are trained and background checked.
Voices of Hope Choir
Children, Kindergarten through 12th Grade, are welcome to join our HopeKidz Children’s Choir. We have two choir events a year. We have practices October through December which lead to the Christmas performance. For the Easter performance practices run February through Easter. We include all children willing to participate, so no tryouts or experience is necessary. We have a talented team of devoted coaches who take our children to a performance level choir. During the performance seasons HopeKidz Children’s Choir practices take place on Sunday mornings.
Family Fun Nights
Quarterly, we host Family Fun Nights at the church. These nights are designed as events to invite families in the community, as well as an opportunity to provide fellowship for our church family. Typically, Family Fun Nights happen on a Sunday evening from 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm. In the past, we have hosted the following Family Fun Nights: Passport to Prayer, Parent Night Out, Fall Festival, Bingo Night and more. A special tradition is the Advent Festival around Christmas. Families, or anyone who enjoys fun and holiday decorating, are invited to come enjoy an evening eating, making advent candles, and holiday wreaths.
