FAMILY LIFE MINISTRIES
Partnering with Parents in Raising Disciples of Jesus Christ
Many Ages, One Vision
Our Family Life Ministries involve children and students from ages 0-18, pre-school to high-school, with one common mission: to glorify God by raising the next generation of disciples. At HopePointe, we think it's a privilege and one of our greatest responsibilities. It's why the pastors of our children's and student ministries work so closely with one another, under the leadership of our Family Life pastor, to ensure our students walk along one streamlined path of discipleship, preparing them for following Jesus Christ in today's world.
Partnering with Families
Our team is well equipped for the job. Its members have years of theological training and experience with organizations like YoungLife, Cru, and of course, local churches. Above all, they have a passion for God and the Scriptures. At the same time, we recognize no one will have a greater spiritual impact on a child than his or her family. This is why we focus not only on training children, but also their parents. We know the best way to minister to children is by equipping their families for the exciting, scary, and awesome task of discipling their kids. Our team provides resources and teaching to support them in this work God's called them to (Deuteronomy 6:6-7).
Children (Birth-6th grade)
In our Children's Ministry, we aim to give our children a solid foundation in the gospel of Jesus Christ. We use age-appropriate lessons and activities to teach them of God's great love and His amazing character. As they mature, we use additional tools like Awana to strengthen their knowledge and love of God through immersing them in the Scriptures. All of this is done in a safe and loving environment where children know they're welcomed and treasured.
Students (7th-12th grade)
In our Student Ministry, we continue to build on this foundation through Bible-study, worship, prayer, small-groups, service, and mentoring. We're convinced our student community is a place that is welcoming, friendly, and engaging. It's also where students learn discipleship is about more than just knowledge; it's also about being equipped to proclaim the gospel to the world through our words and lives. Additionally, our students are challenged to think deeply about how the gospel relates to an ever-changing culture.
