Children of Hope

Children of Hope

Children are a great, great blessing from God!  But we must believe it, and have the vision that God has for them - to get saved, to spiritually grow up, and to be godly servants.  For this to happen, we need to focus on our children.  They need to be loved, taught, disciplined, and have good role models.  Therefore, this particular ministry works with the parents, encouraging and instructing them in the teaching and training of their children.  This ministry oversees and directs the Sunday School classes for the 0-2 year olds, the 3-6 year olds, and the 7-11 year olds.  These classes are fun and interactive, but the primary focus of these times is God's Word, Jesus Christ and the gospel, and on godly character.  Matthew 19:13-15

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
Honor your father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise),
that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth.

Ephesians 6:1-3



Youth of Hope

The pressures and challenges that young people face in the world today are enormous!  The Lord is the only answer!  Our Youth Ministry works with the parents in building up and equipping their children so that they can face these challenges, be righteous, and live for the Lord.  This ministry is involved with those in both middle school and high school.  Our youth group meets every other Sunday evening for teaching and fellowship.  The time includes some great activities and games, and a very good meal. But the main focus of our time is our Bible study, at which we teach the youth important lessons from God's Word, help them in their walk with God, in building godly character, and in developing good friendships.  Proverbs 1:7, 2:1-5; 7:1-2, Ephesians 6:1-2

I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning.
I have written to you, young men, because you are strong,
and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.

1 John 2:14

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13
