The children’s ministry of Living Hope exists because kids matter to God. We consider it a privilege to partner with families in the spiritual journey of their children. It is our goal that as each child grows they will:
We are committed to doing this through safe environments, creative Bible teaching, energetic worship and relationship-building small group experiences.
Programming is provided at all weekend services for children age 6 weeks – 5th grade. Each classroom is designed to meet the age-appropriate needs and learning abilities of the group.
The Crib 1 (ages 6 weeks to 23 months)
Here in Kidsworld we love babies! We are blessed to have to best team of individuals who are dedicated to this classroom. We provide a fun and safe environment for you littles ones. We are pleased to spend time with them and get to know their personalities. While they are with us we will play soft worship music as we play with them. We can't wait to meet you!
The Crib 2 (ages 2 yrs to 3 yrs)
Kidsworld loves Toddlers! In this classroom we start implementing a little structure to class time. Your little ones will experience a fun class room with many toys to choose from but they will also have 5 to 10 min of ministry learning time as well. These littles ones will learn they same topic as the rest of Kidsworld but on a level they can understand. They will have a time of worship as well. Our goal is to begin to lay the foundations of learning that will come in the next classroom and make sure they make friends and have fun! We can't wait to meet you!
Little Villa (ages 4 yrs, 5 yrs, and Kindergarten)
Kidsworld loves to see the learning that happens in this age group! Here in Little Villa the children will begin to learn the most important elements to being little Christ followers. They will learn to worship The Lord through music, prayer and action. They will be taught the word of God thorough fun and interactive stations that keep the little ones moving and learning. During free time they will continue to learn about friendships, sharing and caring for their neighbors. Through lesson supporting crafts they will be free to express themselves and experience hands on ways to learn scripture or life lessons. We are dedicated to teaching your precious ones the Love of Christ though our actions and the lessons that we teach! We can't wait to meet you!
K Dub (1st to 5th grade)
We love elementary kids here in Kidsworld! We have learned that friendship is very important to children in this age range and so we have created a fun and welcoming environment that the children come right into as they arrive. This is their time of fellowship where they can make new friends. Our goal is to help every child make a friend in class time. We begin our time of learning with prayer, it is our foundation to everything we do in Kidsworld. The children write their prayers down or speak them out and we pray for them each week. We teach the kids about worship thorough music, giving, prayer and kindness towards family and community. Each week we prepare a lesson that will teach the children about their forever friend,Jesus. We have fun in Kdub and we usually end the class with a craft or a fun game that helps the children understand what they learned in class. We can't wait to meet you!

Electronic Check-in system
Here at Living Hope Church we use an electronic check-in system for our children's ministry. When you arrive you will see multiple colorful signs that will point you in the direction of the check in counter. We have friendly and knowledgeable team members that will be ready to help your family start the process of checking your children in for their ministry time. We will gather some basic information about your children, issue you a check in card for convenience and then the system will print out name tags for your children and a pick up tag for you. If your child needs you for any reason, the alphanumeric code on your pick up tag is the number that will display in the adult service. We have developed a comprehensive check in and check out security procedure, as your child's safety is the utmost importance to us. We are here to serve your family, and we look forward to meeting you!
Safety and Security
We care about the safety and security of your kids. All Kidsworld volunteers have been through a screening process including personal references, a criminal background check and a written application.
When you check in your children for class time you will get a pick up tag that has a matching alphanumeric code to your child's name tag. We urge you to keep your pick up tag in a safe place so that you do not misplace it. Due to our comprehensive security procedures you will not be able to gain access to Kidsworld without that tag. If you do misplace it, the Director of Kidsworld will assist you in this. This process can be very lengthy, so we encourage you to keep your tag in a safe place at all times.
Sick Child Policy
Please help us keep all our children well. If your child has a fever, sore throat, green mucus, unexplained rash, or has had any of those symptoms in the last 24 hours, we will not be able to accept them into our classrooms. We appreciate your help with this, since germs travel quickly.
