Ministry for Children and Youth
At New Hope, our mission is to instruct, inspire and encourage our children and youth in the ways of Jesus Christ and we have specially-designed services and ministries for their enrichment and growth.
Daycare and Preschool – As one of the oldest church-owned daycare and preschools in the city, New Hope has years of experience equipping children ages 6 weeks to K-4 with educational and spiritual knowledge. We have state-of-the-art facilities at both our Southwest and South Avondale locations and follow the prestigious ABeka curriculum with convenient hours of 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Herman Stone Mass Choir – Named after New Hope’s beloved former pastor, this choir features the dynamic voices of the youth up to ages 17. Every second Sunday, our young people bring the church to its feet with spirited performances of contemporary, uplifting songs that offer praise to God with a youthful flair.
Silent Voices Dance Ministry – Every second Sunday, this group of lively young people perform dramatic interpretations of inspirational songs and do so with the grace of a dancer and the precision of a soldier.
Youth Ushers – The youth at New Hope play an important role in our church services. Every second Sunday, they serve as ushers, escorting church attendees to their seats and assisting with services.
Education and Fellowship
We are committed to the spiritual growth and fellowship of our members and have created a variety of ministries to assist in their development and walk with Christ.
Hope City – Hope City is church for youth, by youth. Its motto is “All the way turned up for Jesus” and is a lively weekly church service designed to meet the spiritual needs of young people.
Children’s Church – At New Hope, we know that children are a heritage of God and understand the importance of training them well. Every Sunday at 10 a.m. children participate in their own church service where the Gospel is taught on their level. They experience dynamic teaching and share in activities and discussions specific to their needs.
Annual Scholarship Presentation – New Hope awards thousands of dollars to our deserving high school seniors and college freshman. To date, over a quarter of a million dollars has been given.
