Our Vision for Families

WE LOVE KIDS! Our goal for families is that parents develop within their children a foundation of God-spoken truths that will prepare them for their next season of life. To help with this, we offer programming that allows the church to come along side parents, providing them with the tools and tips they need to have gospel-oriented conversations with their children. We look forward to connecting with you and your family!

Additional Information

Partnering with Parents: 'AT HOME WEEKLY'

Faith starts at home. Because of this, we know that we need to give parents practical tools to guide faith conversations at home. The first tool is the 'At Home Weekly', provided in the Tru Curriculum by David C Cook. This weekly resource helps parents initiate and lead meaningful faith conversations based on that week's lesson from the Bible. By using the 'At Home Weekly', parents get the opportunity of starting the faith conversation for that week. The weekly conversation then comes to an end at New Hope Kids on Sunday morning. With a new 'At Home Weekly' posted each week, this is a great resource for starting a routine of talking about your faith with your children.

Partnering with Parents - Bible Story Videos

A large amount of children are primarily visual learners. However, we don't always take this into account when trying to teach our children stories from the Bible. To help take advantage of this learning style, New Hope has access to over 120 Bible Story Videos from ShareFaith Media. These videos focus on simply telling the individual stories as they are recorded in the Bible so that parents and leaders can own the role of helping children understand what we can learn from them. Whenever a video is available that aligns with the weekly lesson, we will post the video here on our website. We hope this serves as one fun and engaging way for you to lead into faith conversations at home.

Partnering with Parents - Pastoral Support

If you are ever in need of prayer and Biblical guidance in your role as a parent or spouse, please do not hesitate to contact one of the pastors at New Hope. We are here to help you discern God's direction for your life and the life of your family.

How are we responding to COVID-19?

New Hope Kids has created a specific plan for responding to COVID-19 and maintaining a safe space for our children on Sunday mornings. As we already had been, we will continue to rely on parents/guardians to be honest about the health of their children every Sunday. This is a part of our pre-existing sickness policy. As parents, we generally know whether or not our child has shown any symptoms of sickness recently. Whether it's COVID, the flu, or a cold, we can all respect other families by not checking our sick children into a classroom environment with other adults and children. Beyond this, we do have other measures that will be put in place. Some will be temporary. Others will be more permanent. For a season, we will be using non-contact forehead thermometers to check temperatures of children prior to entering a classroom environment. We will also, for a season, be asking parents about the general health of their child(ren) on Sunday mornings. This will not be a survey or questionairre, just a simple question about your child's recent health. Notably, the permanent measures will have little or no direct affect on our children or how they are interacted with on Sunday mornings. If we do them well, most people won't even know they are happening. These long-term measures are focused on better cleaning practices and utilizing toys/activities that are less likely to spread a contagious illness.
