Children’s Ministry


The New Hope Children’s Ministry is one avenue of the church that exists to exalt God by magnifying His name, edify the body by making disciples, and evangelizing the lost by pointing to the hope found only in Jesus Christ.

Our goal is to come alongside parents to help instruct their children in biblical truth at an age-appropriate level, while freeing parents to participate in the worship service and other ministries.

We are committed to provide a safe and secure environment for the children in our care. For this reason, every Children’s Ministry worker has passed through a careful evaluation process including a detailed application, background check, and elder interview.

We use a Check-In system where each child is checked in before entering the nursery or classroom. Children are only released to a parent or sibling (over the age of 16) when a matching ID tag is presented.

Some parents take their children to class at the beginning of the worship service and others take them to class after the music portion of the service.

  • Please have your child’s personal items (diaper bags, bottles, etc.) labeled to identify them as yours.
  • Please bring your own diapers. If you do not want your child changed by our nursery staff, please let the staff know.
  • We ask that you do not admit babies that are running a fever, coughing or appear to be ill.
  • Nursing mothers are welcome to use Room 205 during the service as needed. This room is located in the west-wing hallway at the very end. There are rocking chairs, a changing table, and a live sermon feed.
