Reopening Plan

We miss your kids! And we’re excited to reopen NH KIDS in the future! After reviewing CDC guidelines and consulting other ministries, we’ve come up with a number of strategies to keep kids, families, and volunteers as safe as possible. This includes… 

  • Limiting class size and arranging rooms to allow sufficient distancing
  • Health screening questions and temperature checks for volunteers
  • Instructing families to screen children before coming to church
  • Requiring masks for volunteers and kids 5 years and up (Exceptions for children with health concerns)
  • Using hand sanitizer before, during and after class
  • Sanitizing rooms between services
  • Rotating toys and supplies, etc. 

NH KIDS is currently not meeting in-person. Visit our Facebook page for updates and changes!

Meet Our Children’s Ministry Director

“I love kids and Jesus! And I’m inspired by the great evangelist, D.L. Moody, who once said… ‘If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry to reaching children for God!’ I count it as both a privilege and a blessing to serve here at New Hope.”

– Deborah Wright, Children’s Ministry Director
