Children and Family Ministry

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 to raise their kids to be passionate followers of Jesus Christ.

What We Do

HopeKids programming is for infant-5th Grade on Sundays in Cambridge at 8:45 & 10:15, and in Isanti at 9:30 only.

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. 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.

We have recently made changes to serve families who have children with sensory processing disorders and special needs! Our New Family Registration Forms have a full page of questions you can answer about your kid(s) so we can serve them better. Some things we've added to the classroom include: Safe Place tents • Noise canceling headphones • Calming Corner • Self-calming cards • Fidgets • Weighted lap pads • Special volunteer training. We also have a designated nursing and pumping space at each campus! There is a livestream of the service, comfortable chairs, a sink, counter, and changing table.

What To Expect

Services last about an hour. During that time your kids will experience some music, a Bible story that always leads back to Jesus, and some kind of craft or fun experience to tell you about!

New Hope uses a system that assigns each child a name tag with a random code that matches their guardian's pickup ticket. This system also allows us to text a guardian if the child has been struggling to adjust to class after ten minutes. There are always at least two staff or volunteers per class and members of New Hope's Security Team and Medical Team are nearby. We also take great care with any special needs a child might have!
