Each Summer at Community of Hope we have a blast learning about Jesus! Through crafts, songs, games, Bible stories, and treats we provide an over-the-top adventure for the children! Kids deepened their faith and learned more about Jesus. Our Vacation Bible School is planned with two goals in mind: 1) Spread the Good News to every child who enters our doors. 2) To encourage our campers to become Mission Minded Citizens.
If you’re interested in volunteering to help with Vacation Bible School, please email email@example.com to sign up to help. Volunteers needed for leading station activities, leading walking groups, help with skits, songs, snacks, decorating and more!

Kids Church at 10 am (Labor Day through Memorial Day)
Community of Hope offers a Sunday morning children’s ministry from September through May. We have one worship service at 10 am. About 15 minutes into the worship service there will be a children’s message, a time for kids to come forward for a few minutes to hear a special message designed for them. Then they can join their parents again, or kids are invited to head out for children’s ministry activities. Children from 3 years old through 5th grade participate in Kids Church Sunday School classes. Children under 3 years old have childcare available.
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. Kids Church includes craft projects and games focused on Bible lessons. There are also snacks, music and worship time, birthday celebrations and loving teachers. All of our volunteers and staff are trained and background checked.
