Children's Ministry

The Children’s Ministry at New Hope seeks to create an exciting and fun environment that will help your kids experience God and learn more about Him. This ministry is led by passionate volunteers who love and care about kids. The Children’s Ministry teams are committed to making your child’s time with us one of the best parts of their week by presenting God’s truths in a fun and engaging way at a level appropriate for your child’s age.


Our check-in system ensures that you can engage in our worship services knowing your child is well cared for and safe.
