Sunday school — all ages

New Hope Presbyterian Church values learning about the Bible, what it means to have faith, our Reformed heritage and spiritual practices that can deepen our faith. We offer a traditional Sunday School program during the 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. hour for children, youth and adults. We offer other opportunities throughout the year for intergenerational gatherings such as our Advent craft workshop, our Christmas memories storytelling, an all church retreat in the spring and our Wednesday Lenten dinners and devotions. We hope you will join us to learn more about the Bible, living as a disciple of Jesus and putting our faith into action.

Preschool and Elementary:

We believe that learning songs helps shape the faith of children, and with that in mind we begin with singing and music with Susan Kimmel at 9:45 a.m. We have a short story and lesson using the PCUSA Growing in God’s Love, a story Bible-based curriculum. Each session shares a Bible story that reveals God’s love for us. Through fun, interactive storytelling, children and their leaders will: pause to let each story find its way into their hearts and minds; engage their curiosity and imagination with the Bible story through wondering questions and activities exploring God’s presence, actions, and grace in the story; and wrestle with how they fit in the story, what God is calling them to do, and how they follow God’s way of loving and living as disciples of Jesus Christ. We typically have one teacher and one assistant leading this multi-age class.


The youth meet together in one class at 9:45 a.m. in person. Our hope is to continue to develop a community that has good discussions, shares our joys and concerns, and learns and grows together in faith.

Our youth meet together in one class (6th through 12th grades) and are studying people from the Old Testament and their stories using Re:Form: Ancestors: Old Testament from Sparkhouse. We have a team of teachers who rotate teaching/facilitating discussion. Youth also share their “happies and crappies” of the week and engage in prayer for one another.


Adult class meets Sunday at 9:45 a.m. in person. This year, the adult class is learning about the Bible — why do we study the Bible? What does context have to do with the stories in the Bible? What does hermeneutics mean? Come for a deep dive into why we Presbyterians believe the Bible is the Word of God, inspired by the spirit, written by humans–and still has meaning for our lives in our world today. This class is facilitated by a team of teachers and meets in the Old Fellowship Hall at 9:45 a.m. All are welcome to join us! The readings for each week go out in the newsflash on Wednesdays.
