KidCity is our ministry for birth through 5th grade.
Through age-appropriate weekend environments and outreach events for kids, our goal is to engage kids with the gospel in a way that brings the Bible to life and makes it relevant to them right where they are. We believe ministry is done best in the context of relationships, and we know that our influence combined with a parent’s influence is the best way to encourage kids to grow in their relationship with Jesus.
Commit to raising your child in the Word
Parent dedication is more than just a commitment to raise your child in the Word. It’s also an opportunity for the church to come alongside you, to support you, and to pray for you and your child.
The next Parent Dedication class will take place on Sunday, May 7 from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. The class will prepare you for the Parent Dedication that will take place on Sunday, May 21 between services.
Encourage your child to bring a friend
We believe that kids are not just the church of tomorrow, but the church of TODAY! We want to call kids to more to help us REACH our communities. When kids invite friends to church from their sports teams, clubs, schools and neighborhoods, this is an expression of owning their faith and passing it on to others.
Not every month has a 5th Sunday, but the ones that do are extra fun in KidCity. If your child has been wanting to bring a friend to church, 5th Sunday is the perfect occasion.
Our next 5th Sunday Funday will be April 30, 2023!
Help your child follow Jesus
Is your child interested in learning more about what it means to follow Jesus? KidCity Baptism Class is a 30-minute class held in between Hope’s services on the first Sunday of the month. If your child is interested in getting baptized at Hope, we ask you to attend one session of KidCity Baptism Class. During this class, we’ll help you figure out how to address the topic of salvation and other questions your child might ask.
5th Grade Twisted Tour Dates
A big transition is coming up for you and your rising middle schooler, and we want to make sure it’s a smooth one! Twisted Tour Dates are scheduled during regular services so that your 5th grader will have a chance to meet the middle school team and check out middle school gatherings before they BECOME middle schoolers themselves.
