Hope provides various learning and discussion activities for members and friends to grow in their knowledge and faith. Learning activities for adults and children have moved online successfully in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Children's Sunday School

IMG 6598_editedWe want kids to know that God loves them. So we support kids and families growing in faith together. During the school year, we have Sunday school online every week for children ages 2-8 (the Zoom link appears in the list of ongoing events on our home page).

Children hear a Bible story, sing songs, play games, and do crafts. Parents are encouraged to check the most recent newsletter for any craft supplies needed.

This year's theme is "Who Was Jesus Friends With?" Kids will be exploring important people from the Bible as well as how Jesus is our friend today.

When we are able to meet safely in person, families will again be welcome to stay and participate with their children. All Sunday School teachers have passed background checks.

If you would like to learn more, or if you have older children who also want to be involved, contact Pastor Julie.

For Adults

IMG 3609 editedWe often hold adult education forums after worship, as either a series or a stand-alone discussion. Check our home page or newsletter for information about adult forums, Bible study series, Scripture Mini-Retreats, and other activities.

Additional learning opportunities are available this fall as part of our online worship partnership with St. Andrew's Episcopal Church. Find out more here.
