AT HOPEPOINT CHURCH
We have always been a church of and for the generations. We want to build people in EVERY stage of their life.
”Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think - according to the power that works in you - to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21 [NIV]
Get Togethers // Social, fun activities to build relationships.
These are a great way to reach people and connect them in.
Gatherings // These are larger group activities that connect people in that age group with some spiritual content. These may be yearly, quarterly, bi-monthly or weekly [depending on what the leader sees will work].
Groups // These are smaller groups that connect people in that age group.
Providing an intimate setting for people to grow and receive support.
In many ways, not only does tomorrow’s church depend on our children, but so does today’s. Think about it. When was the last time the joy and faith of a child not lift your spirits? We all know we need to have faith like our children. That’s why our 'HopePoint Kids' Ministry wants to instill a deep-rooted faith in our children early. Each week we strive to present biblical truths in creative, memorable ways and strive to partner with parents in modeling loving, Christian relationships.
We provide exciting opportunities for growth and learning. We do all of this so that a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ can begin. We seek to make this your child's favourite day of the week, so we use skilled volunteers, technology, fun activities, and excellent environments to communicate the timeless knowledge of our loving God.
We believe this makes HopePoint Kids a place your child will be begging you to bring them back each week!
