What we’re learning…

We believe that no child is ever too young to experience and learn about God. At Hope, we’re building our Prekids department around this belief and we are excited about what God can do in the hearts and lives of young children. Our heart is that children will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God loves them, God made them and Jesus wants to be their friend forever!


Infants

Each month, we focus on one truth to speak or sing over your baby: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus is my friend forever.

Here’s an example:

While holding, rocking or changing your child’s diaper, we will sing the following rhyme to the tune of “Are You Sleeping”.
“God made your eyes, God made your ears, God made YOU, God made YOU.”
“God made your fingers, God made your smile, God made YOU, God made YOU.”

Toddlers

Each month, we focus on one truth to communicate to your toddler: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus is my friend forever.

Here’s an example:

After gathering the children together in a circle, we hand out baby wipes. As we help your child wipe their arms, hands, legs and feet, we remind them that God made their arms, their hands, their feet, their legs…He made all of them!
