Youth Ministry

 

At Hope, a central part of our mission is to help families grow in faith.  We do this through faith formation programs.  But more importantly we believe that relationships and community are at the center of this.  There are few places in our busy world today where we can find authentic and engaging places for community.  Here at Hope, we want you to find that space.  In God's presence we are more than simply individual people, we are a part of God's family.  And our family at Hope is committed to helping your family grow!

Sunday School

 

At Hope we use the Spark Bible curriculum.  Each class is tailored to the specific needs and developmental stage of your child.  It is our goal to connect our Sunday School to worship.  It is not simply a class your child attends, but rather an integrative step in their faith formation.

Fusion Confirmation 6th-8th gr.

 

Hope's Confirmation program is for youth in grades 6 through 8. 

Confirmation is a ‘re-affirmation’ of the vows that were made at our Baptism.  Our approach helps teenagers discover that learning about God can be fun! Our program combines exploring our current lives with understanding the meaning of Biblical truths.  It is an energetic program that involves music, games and small groups. During this fast-paced, three-year program our youth will study the Old and New Testaments of the Bible as well as Luther’s catechism and the meaning of faith in their individual lives.
