KIDZ WORLD 

We are extending Kidz World through the month of April! Our last gathering will be on April 28th in person for a big celebration! Kidz World is a Bible study group that meets each week for kid’s age’s 1st–5th grade on Wednesday evenings from 4:30–6:00 PM (in-person weeks) and 4:30–5:30 PM (online weeks). Weekly gatherings alternate between in-person and online. We will play games, makes crafts, dance and worship together all while learning more about God’s word. Kids are encouraged to join us solely online, in-person, or for both! All participating children must wear a mask for in-person gatherings and register on the Hopewell calendar. Zoom call details can be found on the calendar or on our Children’s Ministry blog.

Third Grade Bible Skills Crash Course

We are holding two in-person and one online session for this year’s third grade students. Every year, our third graders spend 6 weeks of the spring semester in Sunday School studying and learning their Bible. This fun and intensive class is traditionally taught by Marsha Hodge and Patty Wiehler and begins with an in service ceremony where the 3rd graders receive their Bibles in front of the congregation. This year we are offering several session options for students to attend a crash course of this curriculum. There, they will receive a packet for further study at home. They must complete and return the packet in order to receive their Bible in May. We plan to still give out Bibles during one service and hopefully film a spot for virtual worship as well. Our crash courses will be held Monday March 29th and Tuesday March 30th both nights 6:00 -8:00 PM.

VBS LEADERSHIP TEAM Recruiting

The VBS Leadership Team is searching for new members. We’ve sent out emails and posted in the Hopewell Happenings asking experienced volunteers and parents to prayerfully consider being a part of this team and serving our church and children in one of our most memorable events of the year! There is no obligation to work the actual week of VBS by participating on the Leadership Team. We simply need helpful minds and hearts to assist with planning! Our in-person planning meetings are taking place on April 8th and 22nd from 6:30 – 8:00 PM. These also can be joined via Zoom.
