WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO?
What programs are currently happening?
Each Sunday from 1pm-3pm, we hold Hope for Kids Family Church at the Den. Children and their families from all walks of life are welcomed for a hot meal, time of worship, and interactive service for all ages! As families and individuals return week after week, they have a chance to hear the message of salvation, build relationships with the Hope for Kids family, and grow in their faith. Learn more about Family Church here.
Tuesdays from 5:30pm-7:30pm from September-May, the Hope for Kids Den is open for Club Hope. [For specific Club dates, check the Calendar!] Kids ages 5-12 have dinner, hear a lesson centered around finding “treasures” in God’s Word, participate in character-building small group “camps,” and play games. We are so excited to launch Club Hope this year with a brand-new format and curriculum! Learn more about Club Hope here.
One Saturday a month at 12pm, kids ages 5-12 are invited to Event Hope at the Den [For specific Event dates, check the Calendar]. Kids have lunch with our volunteers, hear a Bible lesson, learn life skills such as painting and baking, celebrate holidays, and build lasting relationships. Kids from all over Springfield along with our community families look forward to these events every month! Learn more about Event Hope here.
How can I help?
There are so many ways YOU can get involved in the ministry of Hope for Kids! Check out all the options below.
Help with Ministry needs
We rely completely on God to fund our work through prayer and donations. If you would like to be a part of what He is doing in Springfield, you can visit our Donate page.
If you’d like to help us keep up with the many supplies our busy ministry runs out of, check out our Supply Needs page! We’re always in need of things like paper goods, coffee supplies and food items.
We also are always in need of meal helpers for all of our events. If you’d like to make a meal for a Sunday or Tuesday event, please visit our sign up page to sign up!
Volunteer at a Club or Event
It takes a village to run events at the Den! We are always looking for volunteers to work with us.
Screened volunteers: view our sign up page and click “Club Hope” or “Event Hope” to volunteer on either Tuesday nights (Club Hope) or Saturday mornings (Event Hope)! Volunteering is a one-month commitment. Check the calendar for specific event and club dates.
