Childrens Ministry

Introducing and learning the faith

We are passionate about helping your children grow in their knowledge and understanding of who God is and how much He loves them! Our desire is to help your child build a firm faith foundation so they can experience a rich, lifelong relationship with Him.

To do this, we provide age-appropriate worship environments led by our awesome volunteers and staff where kids can learn about the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in a fun and engaging way.

We look forward to partnering with you in the opportunity to support you and your child on their faith journey. God has so many good things planned! 

 
 

Hosanna Kids

Your little ones are important to God and the church. We have designed a weekend ministry environment where your child can be introduced to the faith and the character of Jesus through worship, storytelling, art, and play. 

Curriculum and content for this age is focused on Introducing the Faith through the following Vital Truths:

  • I can talk and sing to God anywhere and anytime.
  • I am special.
  • Jesus is my friend.
  • Jesus loves me and died for me.

Learning the faith should be fun! Our weekend kids ministry is designed to bring the Bible to life through interactive stories, worship, and games.

Curriculum and content for this age is focused on learning the faith through the following Vital Truths:

  • God has a plan for me.
  • I can talk to God and ask Him tough questions.
  • God is real and I can trust Him.
  • I understand God’s plan for salvation: Admit, Believe, Commit.
 

Hosanna Kid's Mid-Week

Community is important! We have designed a small group ministry for kids that encourages them to build friendships and connections with peers their age, as well as a trusted leader. Kids go deeper in their faith by participating in group discussion, games, and activities. Engaging Bible stories and worship are also part of the midweek ministry experience.

Curriculum and content for this age is focused on learning the faith through the following Vital Truths:

  • God has a plan for me.
  • I can talk to God and ask Him tough questions.

  Mile Markers for Kids Infant to 5th Grade

Along your child's journey, they will encounter important mile markers of their faith. As a church, we support you and your child along this path and celebrate the turning points in their personal walk with Jesus.

Infant/Child Baptism

We offer baptism for children ages infant and older with a special dedication ceremony. Infant/child baptisms take place in and around weekend services, where families are recognized and prayed for. A parent baptism class is required.

Transition to Kindergarten

Kindergarten Transition is an important mile marker for families, as children move from the pre-school ministry into the elementary school ministry. Kindergarteners are celebrated and receive a new Bible.

First Communion

We invite kids 4th Grade and older to come to the Lord’s Table by participating in First Communion. This Mile Marker celebrates a Holy sacrament and helps children discover God’s plan, which includes Jesus' sacrifice upon the cross and His love for each child. A parent/child class and special family service are included.

Transition to 6th Grade

This transition celebrates the important move from children’s ministries (5th Grade) to student ministries (6th Grade), from learning the faith to embracing the faith.
