Hope Kids

Welcome! We are Hope Kids, where kids experience the awesomeness of God and gather in a setting designed just for them and meet new friends!  The mission of Hope Kids is to walk alongside families in their faith walk, equipping children with knowledge of the word, confidence in their faith, and excitement to share the good news of Jesus with others.

Kids Sundays

Whether you are visiting us at our Brockport or Greece campus, we welcome children from young walkers –  5th graders. Doors will open at 9:15 am for the 9:30 am service.  Greece Campus families, please plan to stay after service and enjoy the indoor Playcenter or outdoor playground as a family.

We split children into groups:

  • young walkers
  • 2 years and preschool
  • K-3rd grade
  • 4th and 5th grade

What we are learning right now:

Whether it’s with LEGO bricks, Minecraft, or Roblox, kids (and adults!) love to make things — and sometimes break them. In this four-week series from the very beginning of the Bible, we’ll compare God’s ability to make good things with our tendency to break them. Through the stories of creation, the fall, Cain and Abel, and the Tower of Babel, we’ll see that God makes good things, unbreaks what’s been broken, and made us different on purpose, so we should honor God with the things we make.

Talking to the God of creation  with your kids and for your kids is so powerful! 

Here is a great idea from DaySpring. 

5 Scripture verses to pray over your children daily:

1. John 3:16

We must pray for our children’s salvation. Let us come before the Lord daily, praying for them to know Him personally, to love Him and desire to follow Him.

Lord, may my child know and understand your love for him/her. May he/she understand that you showed your love to us by sending your son, Jesus, to die for us. And may my child respond to your love by believing in your son, so that he/she may not perish, but have everlasting life.

2. Mark 12:30-31

It’s also important that our children love God and, from that love, show love to others as well. This can take many forms and have many points of application.

For example, instead of praying for God to make my son less disobedient, I can ask God to give my son a heart that loves the Lord his God with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his mind and with all his strength, and that from this love will flow a desire for obedience.

God, may your spirit move within my child’s heart so that he/she will love you with all his/hir heart, soul, mind and strength. May he/she love you with every part of his/her being, and may that love be the catalyst for loving the people around him/her. May my child’s friends, family and neighbors see you because of the love that they show.

3. Ephesians 4:29

Let us also pray for our children to have kind and healing words. This is an extension of how they can show God’s love, and one of the most practical examples of it.

Lord God, I pray that you keep any unwholesome talk from coming out of my child’s mouth. Please only allow what is helpful for building others up and may his/her words benefit those who listen. May my child’s words bring healing, instead of damage, and serve as a balm over a wound.

4. Joshua 1:9

Each day our children are going out into the world and facing a whole spectrum of ills and dangers, whether verbally, visually or physically. It is important to pray for God to give them courage as they go to school, to play with friends, to events and elsewhere.

God, I know that you have commanded my child to be strong and courageous. I pray that he/she will put his/her trust in you, so that he/she will not be terrified or discouraged. May my child know that you are always with him/her and that you are greater than anything he/she will face in the world. God, give my child courage and give him/her peace.

5. Matthew 28:18-20

Finally, let us pray that our children have a spirit of evangelism.

Lord God, I pray that you will use my child mightily in the advancement of your kingdom. May he/she go forth boldly, speaking the Gospel and making disciples wherever he/she goes. May my child be led by the spirit to teach your word without shame or embarrassment, and may people come to faith because of his/her witness.”

How to Walk with your Child Through the Pain of Unanswered Prayer


Helping your kids when the home is splintered

Kristen Lisemby Rosener
from Christianparenting.org

Half of all children in the United States will witness the ending of a parent’s marriage. Of this half, close to 50% will also see the breakup of a parent’s second marriage.

Studies show that the effects of a broken home on children are serious, ranging from depression and lower grades in school to indulging in self-harm and substance abuse. If you’re like me, that makes you tremble.

My three little ones are living a life I did not ever anticipate them living. Coming from a home with parents who have been married almost 40 years to date, I’ve been completely clueless as to how to help children understand what they shouldn’t have to understand when I don’t understand it myself.

If you are in a similar boat and struggle in helping your children and reaching their hearts when the home has been splintered, below are five practical tips that are helping me and my kiddos as we walk this journey.

Five ways to walk in this journey
1. Prioritize safety
Expect long days and nights of nightmares and random outbursts of anger and crying. Expect clingy, expect lots of insecurity and everything else in between.

In light of this, make your home a safe haven. Make it a priority to build a nontoxic environment that is open and peaceful. Build a relationship with your children that assures them they are heard, validated, and loved unconditionally and individually.

Let them share their deepest fears, and let them reminisce and process the grief. Make sure they see you are with them and that every single thing that hurts them matters to you. Establish a routine and prioritize the safety of their hearts.

2. Be transparent
Children can sniff out deception. Be real and vulnerable with your children. Don’t overload them with information they have no business knowing about, and don’t weigh them down with your fears and burdens—but do cry with them. Do laugh with them. Do show them that it is painful for you also and that God weeps, too.

You can show your children the truth in a healthy, age appropriate way without sharing adult issues with little ones. Showing them that you are needy for God’s help and you are hurting with them goes a long way in not only pointing them to Christ as our source, but bonding with you as well.

3. Let them be creative
In therapy, I watched the counselor use everyday things in a way that soothed and helped my kids. Take balloons and blow all your frustrations and feelings into the balloon. Take crayons and paper and make a feelings book. Put glitter in a bottle and shake it and give your child the amount of time to vent while the glitter settles.

I made a “feelings house” for my son—took a cutout of a boy and we would put the paper-boy in whatever “room” he currently felt he was in (sad, scared, angry, happy, etc.). Spend time showing your children you care about their healing by not only helping them in creative ways, but making it fun, too.

4. Get outside
Nature therapy is a thing we pursue regularly. Take your kids outside and teach them how to ground themselves in God’s creation. Point out the birds and squirrels. Have them stop and close their eyes and feel the wind and listen to the leaves blowing across the ground.

Have them climb rocks and trees and feel the grass. Go outside and let them run the pain out and climb the heartache out. When a home breaks, children often feel trapped in an invisible prison. Getting outside and allowing them to feel wild and free does wonders for the body, the mind, and the soul.

5. Have special things
We have special books, special songs, special routines and special blankets/toys. Find the song that best soothes their little hearts. Find a book you can read over and over. Keep their special blanket or stuffed animal or toy close by and maintain a solid routine so they can feel secure. When a family has been splintered, they need as many things as possible to feel comforted. So watch them closely and pick out special things that make them smile and soothes their anxiety.

Our ultimate healer
Keep in mind that useful tools are a blessing, but ultimately the healer is where healing is found. The comforter is where we find comfort. The one who never changes is where we find our security and solace.

Do all you can (pray, love, study, work) and then leave the rest in the sufficient hands of our God. You and your children are safe under his wing.
