Children & Students Matter. Be known, equipped and loved.

We believe kids and students are important and loved because God believes kids are important and loved! Through relatable teaching, worship and activities, our hope is to share the love of Jesus with the youth in our city and at Hope+Elim, and teach them all we can about him! We want them to know God made them, that he is their friend who is worth a relationship and that they can be real and honest with God.

PowerLife is Hope’s confirmation program for junior high students. Students explore the Bible, ask challenging questions about life, meet new friends and confirm their faith in Jesus Christ during a three-year program on Wednesday nights.PowerLife is an opportunity for junior high students (grades 5-8) to explore the Bible and confirm their faith in Jesus Christ. Each week during PowerLife we seek to help students discover who God has created them to be. We learn and practice spiritual disciplines while encouraging students to read Scripture and apply their faith to everyday life.

Ignition is for high school students in grades 9-12.  Ignition is designed to be a fun, weekly oasis for high school students to simply belong without pressure to “fit in,” ask any question without judgement, be inspired to live out their God-given purpose and find new life in Jesus Christ!
