Mom & Tot is back! Are you looking for a place to connect with other moms during the week?  If so, come join our Mom & Tot drop-in on Wednesday mornings from 10am-12pm at the church! It's a casual place to hang out and chat with other moms while providing your kids/babies a safe space to play. It's a great opportunity to meet new faces and connect with others in the same season of life!  When you arrive, head upstairs to the upper Hope Kids area.

Hope Kids

Family Zone

We have a new FAMILY ZONE upstairs! This is a kid-friendly place for parents who wish to stay with their children during the service. Parents can watch the livestream and have a safe place for their children to be. In addition, we also have a nursing room stocked with diapers and wipes, and access to the livestream with comfortable seating. If you have a child that becomes fussy, or a busy child who needs to "get their wiggles out", we kindly ask that you bring them to our new Family Zone upstairs. This is to ensure that our lobby and worship service areas become a quiet zone so that everyone can worship with minimal distractions. Thank you!

What is Child Dedication?
  1. As a Christian parent, by dedicating your child to the Lord, you are acknowledging your need for God in your family. You are inviting God to be active in your family life, submitting your own desires for your child to God’s desires, and making a commitment to raise your child in God’s way. Parents are acknowledging that we believe that God must be a part of our family life if it is to be good and healthy. (Psalm 127:1)
  2. Parents are acknowledging that their child is a gift from God and they are earthly stewards of the life God has placed in their home. (Psalm 127:3-5)
  3. Parents are publicly declaring their intention to raise their child in such a way that they are given an opportunity to know God and to establish a personal relationship with Christ. Parents’ actions in raising their children are important to God. We have a responsibility as followers of Christ to raise our children in a way that will please the Lord.  The responsibilities the Lord has entrusted to parents include continuously praying for their children, instructing them in the way of the Lord, setting a godly example, and disciplining them as the Lord would discipline us. As parents, you are only able to do these things through Christ’s strength. (Deuteronomy 6:4-9, Ephesians 6:4)
  4. Parents are affirming their total dependence upon the Lord. (John 15:5)
  5. Parents are asking family, friends and the church community to prayerfully support and hold them accountable to these commitments. (Hebrews 10:24-25)
  6. Parents are following the Scriptural example of dedicating children to the Lord given in 1 Samuel 1:11, 26-28, where Hannah vowed to dedicate her child to the Lord if He would grant her one. The Lord honored her request and she kept her vow, dedicating Samuel to the Lord. (1 Samuel 1:11 )
