At Hope Central Church, we embrace and celebrate our children!
We are committed to providing a warm, engaging environment for our children, where they can feel safe and grow in God’s love. We welcome all families!
During morning services, we offer curriculum-based Sunday school for children of all ages. There are three classes for children in the morning service. We also have infant-friendly space available in the narthex for parents with infants as well as rocking chairs at the back of the sanctuary.
Our Sunday school program utilizes the Whole People of God curriculum. Through engaging Biblical stories, we hope to provide children with a sense of the stories and traditions of which we are a part. Creativity, play, and song are integral parts of our curriculum. The programs are run by a pastor, two teachers, and volunteers.
Children return to the sanctuary, processing down the aisle with the gifts of Thanksgiving, in time to participate in the sacrament of Communion with their parent(s). At Hope Central Church, all ages are welcome at God’s Table.
