Hopekids is a Christian education program for kids 3 years old (as of July 31, 2019 and toilet-trained) through 5th grade. Your child will connect with adult leaders who are committed to sharing their faith in Jesus Christ and hear God’s truth through interactive Bible teaching, creative dramas and high-energy music that is age appropriate and reinforces learning.

Even though we will not be able to meet in person for the upcoming weeks, our team has developed a plan to continue to reach families and their children. Weekly, we will post “Hopekids at Home” videos that mimic the lesson portion of our Hopekids hour. We will also provide interactive activities and challenges we encourage you to partake in with your child. Activity pages and further details will be linked in the video descriptions on Youtube. New videos are posted every Thursday morning with additional content found on our social media pages.

Get Connected
Parent Cue App
As a parent, some of the most important things you do for your child don’t happen in a single day. You make small deposits in their life week after week—over time. That’s why the Parent Cue App gives weekly cues to help you make the most of the time you spend with your kid or teenager.
Be sure to link to Hope Lutheran Church by using the 58102 zip code for even more meaningful ways to connect with what your student is learning each week!
