HOPE Marketplace Experience

This hands-on experience for grades 4th-8th puts students in the shoes of HOPE entrepreneurs and broadens their understanding of global poverty.
Children will:

  • Decide on a handmade product to produce
  • Save money to purchase supplies
  • Advertise their business to family and friends
  • Sell their product at the Alleluia! HOPE Marketplace

All proceeds go to HOPE International to further their efforts to end global poverty.

Created By God is a Christian-based sexuality course designed for 5th/6th grade students that takes place in January.  We value this opportunity to offer human sexuality instruction in the context of Christian values.  Email Michele Nelson with any questions.

Alleluia! Children's Ministry has developed "faith milestones" for Pre-K through 5th grade.  These are very important times in a child's faith development.  At each milestone, the child's knowledge and love for Jesus continues to grow.  All faith milestone instruction is achieved using age appropriate materials.  We encourage you to contact Director Children's Ministry Director, April Blair, with any questions.

Throughout the year preschoolers will memorize simple Bible verses.

Second graders will work toward learning The Ten Commandments throughout the school year.
