Jesus loved children and was eager to minister to them (Matthew 19:14; Luke 18:16; Mark 10:14). At Sovereign Hope Church we seek to spread a passion for God in Christ for the joy of all peoples, including our children.
Our Philosophy of Children's Ministry
We realize what a remarkably great task parenting is! So, we seek to teach, disciple, and equip parents for intentional ministry to their children. Whether through sermons from the pulpit, direct relationships in small groups, casual Sunday conversations, or our resource table filled with books, the leaders of SHC seek to help and encourage parents faithfully shepherd the hearts of their families. After all, God designed it this way (Proverbs 1:8-9; Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Ephesians 6:1-4).
Nevertheless, we also offer supplementary ministries to come alongside the ministries of our parents. On Sunday mornings, we offer child care for children up to 3 years old and children's church for children ages 4-8. All of our children ages 4-8 and the child care workers participate in the initial music portion of the service before being dismissed to their classes. Our adults and youth serve on a scheduled rotation to teach a lesson, play games, and make crafts. (We have signs directing you to our child care area).
Every person serving in the childrens ministry at Sovereign Hope Church has been through a background screening to ensure childrens safety.
