“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.”
-3 John 1:4
At Living Hope, our Children’s Ministry is dedicated to teaching children ages 1-12 about the Bible, why we believe what we believe, and how we should live today, in light of Jesus’ return and the coming Kingdom of God. We have a safe environment where the children learn, connect, and have fun! Our desire is that each child that comes would feel loved, that they would develop a closer relationship with our God, and that they would learn to live like Jesus lived.
Each Sunday, the children meet while their parents attend the adult service. During our time together, we pray, sing, have a lesson, talk about our week, and have a snack. Often, we will do an activity or craft in conjunction with the lesson. Our teachers and volunteers have a passion and a love for children. We welcome their curiosity and inquisitiveness and look forward to getting to know each child’s unique personality.
We consider each child and family to truly be a part of our family—the family of God. As brothers and sisters, we value and treasure each relationship. We understand how important the formative years are in a child’s life and we want them to graduate from the children’s program with a strong understanding of the Bible, who God is and how much he loves them, what Jesus accomplished with his life, death, and resurrection, and how they are to live and serve today. Children may be young, but God can do great things with their life!
