Welcome to HopeKids, New Hope’s Children’s Ministry! Each Sunday your kids will experience a fun and safe environment where they will explore the WONDER of who God is and His love for them and DISCOVER how they fit into His plan. HopeKids offers awesome programming for kids from newborn up to 5th grade at all services. In HopeKids we believe, parents have the greatest potential to influence their child’s relationship with God. We also believe the church is called to partner with parents and to raise their kids to be passionate followers of Jesus Christ.  

For our early childhood (birth through five) we use monthly Bible verses, weekly Bible lessons, age appropriate activities, and worship to show our youngest kids their FIRST LOOK at their loving, heavenly Father. For more information about the tools we use each week, go to myfirstlook.org.

Each week, Kindergartners up to 5th graders hear a new Bible lesson and participate in age appropriate activities to help them discover and drive home a monthly memory verse and a LifeApp or virtue. A LifeApp is something God does in us to change the world around us. For more information about the tools we use each week, go to 252basics.com.

Summer + Kids + Fun = Opportunity

Watch for more details on our Neighborhood Backyard Blitz kits - New Hope's summer kids programming that takes place in your own backyard on the week you choose! This great opportunity to "love your neighbor" is coming soon!


We are saving a seat for you.

Summer House Groups

House groups exist to give students time to hang out together while studying God's Word. Like I tell the students, it's a toned down youth group. We hang out, play a game, share some food, and study the Bible. House groups are where we see relationships thrive and grow. I believe every students should be a part of it. So, here's the options:

Sunday Nights 6:30-8pm:

Middle School Boys - Carl and Jessica O'Neil's home (contact us for address)

Middle School Girls - Chris and Rachel VanAnda's home  (contact us for address)

Monday Nights 7-8:30pm:

High School Boys & Girls - Brandon & Sarah Jokinen's home (contact us for address)


HopeFamilies represents wrap-around care for the whole family, and is made up of encouragement, training, and events for kids, students, and adults. Included in HopeFamilies is our marriage ministry, men's ministry, women's ministry, a developing "next generation" ministry.
