In Person Opportunities for Infants and Toddlers
Due to Covid-19, all In person programs are on hold.
Wednesday Night's Children's Ministry
Starting on Wednesday, September 23, we are excited to unveil a new children's program that will take place of our Sunday School in the midst of in person cancellations. We will meet via Zoom for a one hour experience for all children ages 4 through 5th grade. These classes will be taught by our Sunday School team and will include music, teaching, crafts, games and more. Zoom links will be made available internally through our communications systems but if you would like the link please e-mail Paul Goodman.
Post Covid 19 programs: This is simply to give you an idea of what we have offered in the past and may offer in the future:
Sunday School at Hope is offered for children ages 3 through 7th grade and typically follows the Bozeman School District schedule.
Our Sunday School program begins with the children in worship at 10:30. Then following a special children's message, they are dismissed to go to either music or their classrooms depending on the week.
On the 4th Sunday of each month we encourage families to worship together. In order to help our teachers also have this opportunity, there is no Sunday School on the 4th Sunday of each month. This service is led by our Youth Band and will typically try to incorporate more family friend portions. We do understand that for families with younger children this can become a challenge. As a result, we make sure that our nursery is staffed to provide care for your children should you choose to utilize that option.
Baby Steps Event: Establishing routines for your family
Date: Tuesday, October 6 6:00 p.m. (Parent's discussion, Babies do not need to be present)
Gifts: Board Book Bible, parent's book about establishing routines.
Due to Covid-19 all Stepping Stones will be digital this year.
We all know that it is important to read with even your smallest children. Join us as we explore the importance of making Bible Stories part of your daily routine. You will receive a baby and toddler bible that will be perfect to kick start this new routine!
Our 1 hour class will explore ideas for establishing family routines based that implement faith practices without creating a lot of new work for busy families.
We will also explore many ways that you can help your youngest family members start to develop a faith of their own.
Three Year Old Event
Tuesday, October 27 at 6 p.m.
Our Stepping Stones event for three year olds will take place on Tuesday, October 27 at 6 p.m. Prayer is something that is crucial to everyone’s faith life. What ways are you teaching your children to pray? Did you know that even the smallest children can create a routine of prayer at a young age? If you haven’t started saying prayers at Bedtime, what better time to start?
Join us as we share a class together about prayer and learn some new ways to make family prayers a part of your daily life. This class will be 1 hour, with 30 minutes of activities for children and their parents, and another 30 minutes of discussion just for parents.
Each three year old will receive a special prayer pillow that will help you kick off your new prayer habits!
All Classes are FREE but you must pre-register for them. Registration will be available in the near future on this site. A class packet will need to be picked up at church (or can be shipped to you if needed) before the class begins.
During the Summer, children age 4 and under are welcome to attend worship with their family or play in our nursery.
Sunday School takes place every 1st-3rd Sunday during our 10:30 service.
