Welcome to Kids Community
We in Kids Community want kids to feel welcome and that there are specific things that kids need to learn about God at their age. We want to partner with you parents in bringing up of your children in the knowledge of Jesus. We would love for you to join us Sunday mornings at 9:30/11am downstairs.
- All month for the month of February we are collecting goods for the Clackamas Service Center. Bring some peanut butter, tuna, breakfast cereal, snack bars, shampoo & conditioner, soap, deoderant, and other non-perishables before the end of the month.
- Kids Sessions are hear! Every Wednesday in February from 6:30-8:15. Join us at the Kids Sessions showcase Sunday, February 26th! More info at newhopepdx.org/kids-sessions/

Kids Community Consists of Three Age Groups
Nursery (Birth – 2)
Our nursery is designed to show kids (birth – 2’s) the love and nurturing care of God our Father. We literally practice being the arms of Jesus Christ as we hold babies, teach toddlers about God, and play! We want kids to associate church with who God is – and God is the full of Love and Fun! A Sunday morning includes play time, a snack, singing songs, a Bible story, and a fun activity like a craft. The nursery is available during both the 9:30am and 11am services.
3yrs – Kindergarten
Each month kids will learn a different Bible story and memorize a relevant verse. On Sunday morning, kids start in large group where they will play together and go on a Bible Adventure. On this adventure they sing, learn a Bible story and their memory verse, and then apply what they learned. Their service ends in small groups where they will review and pray with a loving volunteer.
1st – 5th Grade
This is such a foundational time in kids’ lives as they are learning identity and purpose at this age. We want that identity and purpose to be grounded in Jesus Christ. We break up our time between two main venues:
Small Group: This is where the kids are together with their specific age group and they grow in community and relationship. There are small group leaders who pour into your kids each week and encourage them in their faith. We have discussion questions, group games, crafts and most importantly time to get to know your kid for who they are.
Large Group: All grades 1st-5th start in our large group room to socialize, sing worship songs, compete in a big game, and take part in an interactive teaching of God’s word. We teach the Bible in Kids Town. It is our desire that through God’s word and relationship kids who attend will grow as Jesus did in wisdom, stature, and in favor with both God and people.
