The children are New Hope Chapel’s fastest growing demographic. The Lord has blessed us by presenting us with the opportunity to minister to these infants, toddlers, and children. The children’s ministry involves many different facets.
From September to May Sunday School is available for children from 10 AM – 10:45 AM. Led by Cristina Cruse and a team of teachers in age graded classes, the time is aimed at teaching children Scripture and Truth in a way that is relevant for them.
The nursery program is available from 11 AM to the end of the service. Responsible and mature volunteers care and nurture children ages 0-3. New Hope Chapel offers an additional private room for nursing mothers with cribs for infants.
Children’s Church is for children ages 3 to 10, and the kids are divided up based on age. Mature, trained, and godly leaders work with the children within the various curriculum, teach them about Scripture and Truth, help the children apply a Biblical Worldview to their lives, and lead them in hands-on activities. Children’s Church meets just after the praise and worship time on every Sunday of the month except for the first Sunday (Family Sunday).
Led by Don & Cristina Cruse, the youth group (ages 9-15) meets typically on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 5-7 PM. They have activities, a Bible Study, and some refreshments.
There are other opportunities for children such as our annual Christmas party, Easter celebration, and our kid’s carnival in the fall. For more information, contact Cristina Cruse.
