Children's Ministries

Babies through 5th Grade

Our Goal

Hey Parents! We know that just making it out the door to church can be a challenge. Once you get here, let us help!

Our goal in Children's Ministry is to partner with parents to help grow faith that lasts into the next generation. While we have only one hour a week with your kids, you are the ones that have the most time and influence on what they do, how they think, and who they become.

Your kids are offered the opportunity to make new friends with kids their own age, and connect with a consistent team of small group leaders who love God and love kids.

Imagine a child never remembering a time they didn't know God loves them!

Sundays at New Hope

We would love for you to join us for Connectionland! We are always excited to welcome new friends on Sunday mornings. And your kids are welcome to bring a friend any Sunday!

9:00am Sunday Worship with Optional Connectionland Jr.

We know some families desire the opportunity for their whole family to attend church together, so we've designed our Sunday morning worship with that in mind.

You are welcome to keep your little ones with you during the Worship Celebration. But we also have trained and background checked volunteers ready to share the love of Jesus and a special age appropriate Bible lesson and craft; all while you engage in the service.

We also have a parent's room available (where you can hear what's happening in the Worship Center) if anyone in your family needs to take a break or needs a fresh diaper.

Education Hour

Following the 9am worship is our Education Hour!

From 10:15-11:15am, here is what is happening at New Hope:

Connectionland Jr.

Babies through Preschool

Check in your child at the blue counter outside the Worship Center. Here, your child will be loved and cared for as they discover three major truths...

  • God made me
  • God loves me
  • Jesus wants to be my friend forever

Your kids will spend time singing, dancing, and enjoying crafts designed specifically for them.

Your child matters to God and us. We would love to have your family join us!


Kindergarten through Fifth Grade

Check in your child in the Multipurpose Room (MP), which is located on the school side of our building. Children begin together for their large group teaching, and then break into age-specific small groups for the second half of our time together.

Our Connectionland children discover three major truths as they grow in wisdom, faith, and friendship...

  • I can make the wise choice.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I can treat others the way I want to be treated.

We aim to make this the best hour of your child's week! In Connectionland, we believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud, and good leaders always care.
