We value children and believe that teaching them to love God first begins at home. As a church we want to partner with parents and church leaders to provide space for children to learn, grow and have fun at the same time. 

On Sundays, our Host Team will direct you to the Hope Tots Classroom where you're welcome to stay with your child or leave them with trained volunteers.  

During the service, our Tots have a busy morning, full of the Big God Story, songs, crafts, and a small snack.

Each week, they
EXPLORE – use tactile learning to peek interest in the story.
DISCOVER – hear a story with the help of our hedgehog friend, “Hamilton.”
RESPOND – engage in worship with instruments and their voices.
BLESS – our volunteers take time to bless and pray for the Tots.

Curriculum for Hope Tots: The Gospel Project for Kids

By the time a child is five years old, we want them to know:

God Made Me
Psalm 139:13-14
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

God Loves Me
Romans 8:38-39
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

God is With Me
Matthew 28:20b
"…And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."

Every month, we send parents a summary of what is coming up every week in the month so that you can prepare your child for what's ahead.
