And Jesus said to them, "Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God." Mark 10:14
Kidz Kare is the entry point for the children's ministries at New Hope. It is the place where children learn the basic truths that God loves them and that the members of New Hope love them. Our key verse, Mark 10:14, communicates our passion for children. We want the little ones to come to Jesus, we want the doors to be wide open so that there are no hindrances to them coming to Him. Kidz Kare communicates that children are important to our church and is provided for most all-church activities. We have divided spaces for better care... 0-24 months, and 2-3 years of age.
Kidz Kore is the core of our Christian Educational structure. We meet Sunday mornings at 9:50 a.m. for ages 3 through high school. The scope and sequence for Sunday has been purposely planned out. Our goal is to systematically teach our children the foundational truths of scripture. We would like the name for Sunday School to reflect our purpose and so Sunday School has officially been called Kidz Kore.
Little Kidz Klub is a part of Sunday night Kidz Klub, but designed for children 3 years to Pre-K.
Kidz Klub is our small group time for children. It includes grades K-5 who meet Sunday night at 6:00 p.m. We seek to give the children a time where they can all come together to focus on the same truths of scripture. The children in ages K-5 are taught the same lessons, memorize the same scriptures and also have a time where they can be mentored in a small group environment. Additionally, they get to play and have fun together. It is their Life Group and it is teaching them the value of being in a Life Group.
This year, in light of New Hope's vision "to build up gospel-centered teams of Jesus followers who reproduce themselves locally, globally, & where Jesus is not yet known", we will be aiming for KK to not only be a time of discipleship but also outreach. We want KK to be a place of relationships, excitement and discipleship, to help kids experience Jesus and live sent.
