Welcome to HopeKids, New Hope’s Children’s Ministry! Each Sunday your kids will experience a fun and safe environment where they will explore the WONDER of who God is and His love for them and DISCOVER how they fit into His plan. HopeKids offers awesome programming for kids from newborn up to 5th grade at all services. In HopeKids we believe, parents have the greatest potential to influence their child’s relationship with God. We also believe the church is called to partner with parents and to raise their kids to be passionate followers of Jesus Christ.  

For our early childhood (birth through five) we use monthly Bible verses, weekly Bible lessons, age appropriate activities, and worship to show our youngest kids their FIRST LOOK at their loving, heavenly Father. For more information about the tools we use each week, go to myfirstlook.org.

Each week, Kindergartners up to 5th graders hear a new Bible lesson and participate in age appropriate activities to help them discover and drive home a monthly memory verse and a LifeApp or virtue. A LifeApp is something God does in us to change the world around us. For more information about the tools we use each week, go to 252basics.com.

Summer + Kids + Fun = Opportunity

Summer House Groups

House groups exist to give students time to hang out together while studying God's Word. Like I tell the students, it's a toned down youth group. We hang out, play a game, share some food, and study the Bible. House groups are where we see relationships thrive and grow. I believe every students should be a part of it. So, here's the options:

Sunday Nights 6:30-8pm:

Middle School Boys - Carl and Jessica O'Neil's home (contact us for address)

Middle School Girls - Chris and Rachel VanAnda's home  (contact us for address)

Monday Nights 7-8:30pm:

High School Boys & Girls - Brandon & Sarah Jokinen's home (contact us for address)

Wednesday Night Youth Group Starts September 13th in Cambridge, Isanti, and Braham. Check out hsmyouthgroup.com for details. 


HopeFamilies represents wrap-around care for the whole family, and is made up of encouragement, training, and events for kids, students, and adults. Included in HopeFamilies is our marriage ministry, men's ministry, women's ministry, a developing "next generation" ministry.

Farming God's Way

Join us at Wednesday, August 2nd from 7:00-8:00pm at New Hope-Isanti to hear about:

1. A scientific review of the environmental issue (or issues) at hand.

2. A clear review of biblical principles highlighting why Christians should be involved.

3. A clear review of practical solutions related to that topic.

About the Speaker: Craig Sorley grew up in three different countries of East Africa as the son of medical missionaries where he developed his own calling to foreign missions and his keen interest in creation stewardship. He holds two degrees from the University of Minnesota, including a Bachelor’s degree in Natural Resource Management and a Master’s degree in Forestry with an emphasis in education. Since 2003, Craig has served as the acting director of what is now known as Care of Creation Kenya, an effort helping Christians in Kenya to capture and implement a God-centered vision for environmental stewardship. 

Core Beliefs: Since the earth is created, sustained, and will be fully redeemed by Christ (Col 1:16-20), and since Christ commanded us to love God with all our heart and to love our neighbor as ourselves (Matt 22:37-39) , all Christians have a divine obligation to honor Christ in our treatment of creation. We cannot claim to love God (or our neighbor) while also participating in activities that degrade, destroy, or pollute the resources of creation. Our responsibility, therefore, is a profound one, and we must seriously consider how our treatment of creation will impact people both now and into the future.

New Hope Partnerships

In order to see the communities of Isanti County and beyond restored, LIKE-MINDED organizations and individuals will have to work together. All of us have certain abilities and gifts that help bring transformation and renewal to individuals, families, and neighborhoods. Sometimes the challenge is simply being informed of all the efforts currently taking place. Below is a list of organizations new hope partners with annually or on an ongoing basis.
