To glorify God by strengthening parents to disciple their children.
HOPE KIDS CORE PRINCIPLES
GIVE INTRICATE CARE
All are intricately made – We care for the individual not for the typical.
TELL THE COMING GENERATION
God’s deeds are glorious – We will not hide, rather we will tell.
God has prepared praise – Our hearts must be ready and expectant because He is Lord.
The foundation we stand on is Jesus Christ
We believe that as we open and learn from the Bible every week with the children, they will see how they are a part of a bigger story.
In this big story, they are recipients of incredible love and grace from our God who has brought us the solution to our problem of sin through the life, death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ. It is this big picture of God’s story of redemption that we passionately seek to communicate to the children in ways they can understand and grasp. We do this by coming alongside and supporting the primary leadership of parents and guardians in the home.

HOPE KIDS CLASSES
Below are the different classes we have in Hope Kids on Sunday mornings and the curriculum that we use to help parents disciple their kids.
BIRTH - PRESCHOOL
The BIG Picture Interactive Bible Stories for Toddlers
Our Toddler curriculum introduces early learners to key stories from the Old and New Testament, teaching them about Christ throughout God’s story! Each Sunday, children listen to a short story and engage in on a Big Picture truth from the Bible.
The Beginner’s Gospel Story Bible
Our preschool curriculum walks through the 52 different Old and New Testament stories found in the Beginner’s Gospel Story Bible by Jared Kennedy. Each week students listen to a story and are asked key questions that point them back to the promises made and the promises kept by God.
JK - GRADE 2
Kindergarten – Grade 2 Class:
What’s in the Bible?
Our Kindergarten, Grade 1, and Grade 2 classes use visuals and interactive teaching videos from the What’s in the Bible Curriculum, to learn about important stories and concepts found in Genesis right through to Revelation. Each week students will engage in corporate worship, a bible story teaching time, and small group time that helps our students unpack and apply truths from the Bible.
GRADE 3 - 5
New City Catechism
Our Grade 3-5 class uses the New City Catechism curriculum to learn the core doctrines of our Christian faith and how to apply it and be changed by it in their daily lives. Each Sunday students walk through key questions and answers and engage in small group activities, games, and discussion to help them go deeper in their faith.
On the first Sunday of every month, insead of being in the classroom, children will join their parents in the worship centre.
