The Primary and Junior Sunday School Departments are led by Jeff and Tara Rains and designed to enrich and educate children in the love of God. All Sunday school material is written by the Pastoral Staff with prayerful consideration towards building strong servants hearts for the Lord Jesus Christ. Our desire at Hope Baptist is for children to come to Christ at a young age and then desire to grow in Christian service for the Lord.
Our Sunday school program is tailored to reach each age group. We provide our children with solid Bible truths and strong biblical principles. The Sunday School session starts at 9:30 a.m. and encompasses ages 2 through the 6th grade.
The Junior Church program is a vibrant ministry
packed with spiritual challenges, worship and preaching, led by Mark and Miriam Walton. Every Sunday, the kids hear from a different preacher with a new and exciting message. The children are encouraged in a disciplined environment, not only to worship and respond, but to enjoy the love of God and obey His word. Every child is encouraged to take part in the service. This may involve playing an instrument, singing or help collect the offering. Many of the boys are even given opportunities to preach! This is great training ground for the future of Hope Baptist!
- Junior Church starts at 10:45 a.m. and includes 1st-6th grade.
- Our Primary Church consists of ages 3 through Kindergarten.
Our Wednesday Night Master Clubs ministry is a high energy, direct impact, Bible-focused program wrapped up in about an hour and a half. Our mission in Master Clubs is to reach every child with the gospel of Jesus Christ. To do this we must train our leaders with effective ways to encourage, equip and engage children in faithful Bible reading, memorization and practical life application. The tools we teach them now are effective in their everyday life as they grow and mature in the Lord. To train children how to serve the Lord, based upon their characteristics and their capabilities. The goal is to do now what the child is capable of doing, and to instill into them that the opportunities abound to serve the Lord in some ministry role as a lifetime pursuit.
We utilize the Bible through memorization, teaching and preaching. Each Club member has opportunity to earn over 165 badges and various awards throughout Master Clubs. We start them as young as 3 years old in the God's Little Treasures class. From there, each child moves up to God's Little Lambs as 4 year olds and then to God's little Shepherds when they reach age 5. Throughout this Beginner program, all children can earn 23 badges, plus stickers, ribbons and memorize 60 verses of scripture.
As they enter the Primary grades, our Lookouts, Spotters, & Scouts will discover how they can be used by God even while still a child. Throughout the primary years each clubber can earn 42 badges, plus ribbons and memorize over 60 verses.
By the time each child arrives in 4th grade, they are ready to grow rapidly in Bible principles including: Bible Study, Christian Service, Christian Living, Bible Doctrines, and more. We are always encouraged to watch the junior-aged children grow in their walk with God through Master Clubs' Ambassadors discipleship program. With well over 100 awards to earn, and 90 verses to learn, there's always something to keep your children motivated to study their Bibles.
- Master Clubs meets on Wednesday evenings at 6:45 PM from October-May.
- Club members are age 3 through the 6th grade.
