“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!
The LH Kids Service Process
When you come to our church, in the entryway are tablets where you can sign your children in. If you are coming for the first time, plan on coming a few minutes early to enter your information into the children’s sign in program. That way, we can ensure that we have all allergen and any special needs information along with your mobile number. The children will get their own name tag printed out at this station.
After you sign in, the children sit with their parents in the Sanctuary until they are dismissed. Children ages 1-6 are upstairs and children 7-12 are on the main floor in the Conference Room.
Parents can pick up their children after the adult service and everyone can enjoy refreshments in the Sanctuary. We encourage everyone to hang out and fellowship together after the service. One of our greatest joys is seeing the children play together after the service, hopefully creating bonds for a lifetime!
