Sunday School (Sundays from 9:15-10:30 a.m.)

Grades K-5 are welcome in our “one room” schoolhouse. A variety of activities such as video, games, and crafts are used to learn the Bible and apply it to kids’ lives.

Playroom during Service (Sundays at 10:15 a.m.)

There is a playroom available for babies & young children during our worship service. The playroom is staffed and also provides a short lesson into playtime.

Of course, parents are not required to take their children to the playroom; some prefer to keep their little ones with them. Parents or guardians are welcome to stay with their child too.

Family Ministry

SummerFest

We are reimagining the traditional Vacation Bible School! At this threenight Family First event we provide dinner, fun family activities, then split into groups for age-appropriate fun. Friday culminates in a huge outdoor bash with bounce houses, food trucks, music, games, and more. Join us each summer because you won’t want to miss it!

Eggaroo

This is not your average egg hunt…join us the Saturday before Easter for the bash of the year! We host bounce houses, food, vendors, multiple age appropriate egg hunts, crafts, photo booth, and so much more! Register on Eventbrite to join the fun!

PumpkinPalooza

Here we take the idea of trunk or treat and flip it on its head with a new approach to Family First fun! We have decorated trunks with candy, vendors, bounce houses, food trucks, special guest appearances, and a spooky walk-thru for all ages! You will not want to miss this exciting new event the Saturday before Halloween (Oct. 31).

Heritage Sunday

Every year we celebrate the heritage of the Congregational Church by hosting a thanksgiving style meal the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Join us for a meal and a celebration to remember!

Advent at Mt. Hope

Every year we remember the coming of the Christ-child with a five part sermon series focusing on the traditional aspects of Advent. Hope, Joy, Love, Peace and Jesus are the central themes throughout this time of year as we focus on the coming King!
