Mount Hope
Children's Ministries

Jesus says in Matthew 19:14, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  Children’s ministry is an integral part of the mission here at Mount Hope.   Our goal is that our church will be a welcoming place for children and their families, where they can grow in their faith and relationship with Jesus Christ.  

Here at Mount Hope we have a variety of programs designed for children.  Below is a list of each of the programs available for children.   If you have any questions please contact Melanie Appelquist, she would be happy to answer them. 

Nursery ~ Children are always welcome in worship but if you need a nursery for your little ones we have one available for both services and during Sunday Morning Bible Study.   Nursery is open to children 0-36 months.

Jesus All Stars ~ is our Sunday School ministry children for ages 3 years old - 5th grade.  Every week children grow in their faith through music, stories, and a variety of activities.

Jesus and Me (JAM) ~ JAM is our ministry group for students 3rd-5th grade students.  On the 3rd Sunday of every month, we get together to have some lunch, devotions, and activities.  Check the church bulletin, Just for Youth news, or contact Melanie Appelquist for more information about the next event.

Vacation Bible School (VBS) ~ Every summer we have VBS!  Students ages 3 years old - 5th grade come to Mount Hope to learn about Jesus through music, games, interactive stories, and so much more.  Check the website for the VBS link each summer!
