We know that children and youth are an integral and precious part of the body of Christ, and we invite them into the life of our congregation. Children and youth of all ages often help during worship as readers, communion assistants, and ushers. Young people are welcomed into every aspect of our life together, including our communion table.

Intergenerational Community

We value, welcome and enjoy children and youth at Well of Hope.

The kids and youth in our community have an abundance of surrogate grandparents and honorary aunts and uncles who love and care for them.


We practice  "free range kids."

We know that kids need to be able to engage worship in their own way.  To this end, we practice  "free range kids" at Well of Hope. Children are invited to be themselves during worship, to move around, and explore as they and their families feel comfortable.

We also offer Children's Church on Sunday mornings. Children are invited to listen to the children's message during worship and participate in a 20 minute activity led by one of our Children's Church leaders. Kids connect with God and one another through stories, crafts, songs, and more while parents are free to listen to the readings, sermon, and prayers. The children return to their families in time for the sharing of the peace. Children of all ages are welcome at Children's Church.

Middle School and High School

Youth ministry is an important part of faith formation for young people.

Our middle and high school youth meet once or twice a month for faith formation, fellowship, and fun activities.

We explore our faith together. Part of the way we do this is in partnership with New Hope Presbyterian. Together we explore our faith on mission trips, retreats, and Wednesday night Youth Group.
