6th - 12th graders worship with their families in the main Auditorium and are welcomed to Youth Group on Sunday & Wednesday evenings.

  • Fun Crafts or Activities:  Kids Connection is never boring. Be prepared to have a discussion with your child about what they did in Kids Connection today! 
  • Bible Lesson: Our lessons are Bible & video based that help children make wiser choices, build stronger relationships and develop a deeper faith.
  • Worship Music: There is nothing more powerful than watching a child worship. Please see our children’s director for a list of worship songs your child is learning.
  • Friends: This is the place where we want kids to belong and be loved. Some of the best friends are made at church!

All volunteers have background checks on file and have regular training. Our volunteers are true heroes at Rising Hope and always have your child’s best interest in mind!

When checking in your child you will receive a three digit pin number on your printed pick-up tag. If at any time during the service your child needs you, this will be projected on the large screen in the Auditorium.

If you see your child’s number on the screen please head back to the children’s desk. Additionally, if your child needs attention we will also try to reach you via text message. 

At Rising Hope we feel strongly that every child is made in the image of God and has incredible worth and ability to contribute to our church family.

Our Children’s Director, with 12+ years’ experience in working with children with disabilities, would love to partner with you to make Kids Connection the best experience for your child possible.

In addition to our one-on-one buddy system, we are looking forward to growing our program with CLC Network training, and various other resources. 

Please see a volunteer at the Kids Connection check-in desk.

You'll be asked to present your I.D. and new tag will be created for you after confirming you are on the approved pick-up list.

There are many opportunities to serve in Kids Connection! Reach out today to let us know you're interested.
