Ministry to Children and Youth

It’s our goal  to partner with parents to help raise up the next generation, helping children to have a strong relationship with Jesus. We offer opportunities throughout the week for children and teens to grow closer to each other and to God.

Vacation Bible School: July 14 – July 18

At ROAR, kids explore God’s goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life! Each day kids will sing songs, play games, make fun crafts, learn Bible verses, hear a Bible story, and meet the Bible Buddies (Mack the lion, Hooper the roadrunner, Marge the water buffalo, Zion the lion, and Savanna the giraffe) to remind them of God’s Word.

A daily snack will be provided. Your children may also participate in a mission project to help collect canned food for needy families right here in the Omaha area.

Vacation Bible School begins  Sunday, July 14  through  Thursday, July 18, 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

"I joined Hope 18 years ago, motivated by my desire to find a place where I could raise my children in a Christian environment. Since that time, not only has Hope taught me to grow, explore and walk my own faith, I’ve witnessed my children develop, grow and walk their faith through different threads of their lives. As a parent, I am eternally grateful to the people and ministry of Hope for the myriad of parts so many people played in that journey. Since my mom is also a member and my daughter is now a mother herself, I’m joyful that four generations now attend Hope and can experience, as a family, God’s sovereign power and Christ’s love and forgiveness."

"We started looking for a church as the birth of our first child approached, and have been blessed to be a part of the Hope family for 8 years now. We have grown spiritually as we've become more involved at Hope and we're delighted that both our kids have a church home that they enjoy attending."
