Hope Families

We don't babysit, we cultivate imaginations...

Our main philosophy for the children’s ministry is equipping kids and their parents with the tools necessary to experience God everyday.

Our Philosophy

At Hope Brooklyn we don't babysit, we cultivate imaginations, inspire questions and discuss how each person is a part of God’s incredible story. Children are such a blessing and we want them not only involved, but integral to our gatherings, providing them with opportunities to experience the love of God through our worship, community and a shared meal. Jesus put kids in the center of His kingdom. We want to follow suit.


Hope Nursery: Newborns - 2 years

Our Nursery is a warm environment just outside the worship space for families with babes to hang out and hear the sermon with other parents who have little wigglers and crawlers. The nursery is outfitted with a changing table, rockers, a soft padded floor, blankets, books, and a play area with age appropriate toys and activities.


Hope Tots: 2 - 4 years

In Hope Tots we walk through stories in the Bible with fun storytelling activities, arts and crafts, and games that help little ones develop a more personal understanding of God.


Hope Kids: K - 5th grade

Our goal in Hope Kids is to dive deeper into the stories of the Bible through fun and interactive programs to help build a stronger spiritual foundation and community with one another.


Hope Youth // The Reservoir: 6th - 12th grade

The Reservoir exists to create a meaningful space for youth to explore the gospel narrative alongside the youth in and around our community by encouraging open dialogue, fostering honest relationships, and possibly eating too much pizza.

On Sundays, we gather together to share stories, laugh, and explore what it means to take ownership of our faith.  

And on Mondays afternoons we meet at Brooklyn Boulders in the Gowanus neighborhood to hang out, do homework, play games, dialogue about the week's topic, rock climb, and (of course) eat.

Our Hope Families Team Members are incredible people with a heart for children and a passion to create safe and nurturing environments for your kids to learn who God is and who they are as part of God's story. All team members also undergo rigorous updated background checks.
