Sunday School

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

It is abundantly clear from the words of Jesus in Matthew 18:1-6 & 19:13,14 that children are greatly loved by our Lord!  What would a church be without children?  One of the great blessings and responsibilities God gives to us as a community of believers is to model faith and godliness for our children while instructing them in the ways of the Lord.
While we believe it is the primary responsibility of the parents to instruct their children in the Christian life, it is our desire at New Hope to help strengthen and support families, as well as to provide spiritual nurturing for children, who for various reasons, have little opportunity to learn about God.  We do this in the following ways:

Worship

Because we believe it is important for children to experience the beauty of family worshiping together, all children are included in Sunday morning worship each week

Care

Loving care is provided for children who are of nursery and toddler age

Instruction

With a strong emphasis on the importance of God’s truth in our lives, Sunday School classes are provided for ages preschool through 5th grade, and are taught by dedicated teachers and helpers using quality teaching material

Prayer

Each Sunday, congregational prayer is offered for our children; throughout each week, our families are prayed for by our church leaders and prayer team

Protection

As we implement ministries at New Hope, we seek to encourage family members to find a balance between serving at church and spending time at home. We want families to spend quality time together with parents discipling their children in their spiritual walk. 

Nursery (Ages 0-2)

Our Nursery Ministry cares for the youngest in our church with the love that God has for His children. We begin our services with families worshiping together and after the music, children are dismissed to their respective classes. Our nursery is located on our main floor.

**Due to the ever-changing health guidelines, our Nursery Ministry is only offered during the 2nd service. All children are welcome to join us in the worship service during the 1st service.  In addition, there is a one-row balcony seating in our upstairs hallway where select families may choose to sit with their children.**

1st - 5th Grade

Our elementary school students will be meeting mostly outdoors for the duration of the summer, as we attempt to keep our children safe with social distancing.  In our Sunday School stations, children will each week be able to study the Word of God through our Gospel Project curriculum.  

**Due to the ever-changing health guidelines, our Sunday school is only offered during the 2nd service. All children are welcome to join us in the worship service during the 1st service.  In addition, there is a one-row balcony seating in our upstairs hallway where select families may choose to sit with their children.**
