Our children are our greatest asset and most precious treasure ~ they are our future.

At Spirit of Hope we offer your children a variety of ways to be involved in our faith community.  Their presence and voices contribute to worship, and they are a vital part of our congregation!

We have many new and exciting ways for kids, youth, adults and whole families to worship, play and serve together!  We look forward to you, your family, friends and neighbors joining us at many of our regular and special events.

Children and Family Ministry: You are invited to accompany your child on his/her faith walk.

Spirit of Hope offers FaithWalk Sunday School classes for children PreK (age 3 and 4) – 6th graders.  Classes meet on Sunday mornings from Kick Off Sunday in September through mid May.  Each week children gather in worship with their families for song and “Word with the children.”  Then children rare not dismissed, but “Missed” to Sunday School.  All kids meet teachers at the back of the Sanctuary where they will be escorted to their group gathering.  After Sunday School all children are picked up by parents in the Fellowship Hall, the large room on the lower level, where we will have a closing song and prayer together.

FaithWalk Sunday School where kids will learn core Bible stories using a rotation model.  Students are grouped by age/grade level and each rotation lasts three weeks.  During that period of time, classes will focus on a specific Bible Story and will experience that story by rotating through learning workshops: Storytelling, Art, Games, Science/Cooking, and Movie.  While the elementary-aged kids are rotating, the PreK kids will stay all together as a group and experience the bible story in a new way each week.  This is an exciting way for our kids to learn.  Each month we will have a surprise guest or activity in between rotation themes.
