Connecting Kids to Christ

Children’s Ministries is shaking things up! Our goal is to serve all children ages 2 – 5th grade with multiple worship opportunities, fun events, and ways to connect. Make sure to check our Facebook page and the Hopewell Happenings!

KidzWorld Revolve, formerly known as Sunday School. Join us at the 9:30 AM service, where we are embracing a rotational model of Sunday School. KidzWorld Revolve is for preschool to 5th grade (masks required), with nursery care provided (9:30) as well. We also have a session at 11:00 AM walking through the same lessons. If you have any questions or are interested in leading these preplanned sessions, email director, Libby Barringer.

KidzWorld Create is held on Sunday evenings from 6:00–8:00 PM. This is a creative arts focused time that includes our children's music choirs and a blocked session of drama, art, and music. If your child loves trying new things and creating, this will be a must!

KidzWorld Wired is hosted Wednesday evenings from 6:00–7:30 PM. Wired focuses on Bible stories with a fun storyteller, awesome games, and small group community. This midweek opportunity is for ages K-5, and is guaranteed to be full of conversation and connection!
