“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”

-Jesus (Matthew 19:14)


Hope Children’s Ministry exists to share Jesus with the children of the congregation and surrounding community.


We want to partner with families to raise children that are confident, healthy, and have a strong love and trust of Jesus. 

We do this by providing safe, fun & Christ-centered activities including:

  • Church Service: Children’s message, bible coloring sheets, sermon study sheets
  • Bible Education: Sunday school, confirmation class
  • Community & Events: vacation bible schools, kids day outs, youth group, community service


Children at Hope Lutheran Church Services

Children are a blessing from God and are always welcome at Hope. We want them to hear the saving Gospel with their families and do not mind if they wiggle or make a little noise during our service. 

For your convenience, we provide snacks and coloring materials at our Family Tables, but feel free to bring your own.

Nursing Mothers

Nursing mothers are welcome and encouraged to attend church. In our current location, we have a small room available for nursing, noted with the mounted “Baby Lounge” sign.


Classrooms are generally split into younger grades (PK4-5th) and older grades (6th and up)

Sunday School Schedule

Hope is committed to ensuring our children learn about God's promises in a way that is fun and meaningful in age-appropriate Bible classes held before morning services

Body/ Internet Safety

Society is saturated with subtle and not-so-subtle messages about bodies and sex and children will learn about these topics either from other children or simply by living in the world. While it is never children’s job to protect themselves, it is better for children to receive a calm, informative, and age-appropriate introduction to these topics from caregivers rather than from peers, the media or child abusers.
