CHILDREN & STUDENT FAMILY MINISTRIES

Kids Ministry needs your help!

There have been lots of babies born in the last year. We are adding another nursery classroom so we need lead teachers and assistants for both the 9:30 and 11am hours. We also are adding another class in the elementary school area. So, we are looking for teachers and assistants for the 11am 1st and 2nd grade class. We also have several openings in preschool and elementary children’s church during the 9:30am hour. Contact Sarah Goodrich in the children’s foyer or email at sarahg@hoffmantown.org to find out how to get involved today!

Promotion Sunday

As many of you may know, Promotion Sunday is around the corner. This exciting Sunday allows our students to graduate into their new classrooms, meet new teachers, and learn even more about our Lord. Before we reach Promotion Sunday in August, we will be holding our annual parent meeting. On July 28 at 12:30pm in the ROC, we will be having a meeting for all parents with kids ages birth through 6th grade for the 2019/2020 school year. It is a pizza party, so come hungry for lunch! We will not be providing childcare. However, we highly encourage you to bring your children as we hope they will also be excited to hear our plans for this upcoming school year. During this meeting, we will cover all the options for your children to get involved in church. You and your child will also have an opportunity to meet the Kids Worship and Kids K-Groups leaders at the end of the meeting. Please chat with Sarah Goodrich if you have any questions. We hope to see you there!

MISSION

Special Missions

A missionary couple, names redacted for security reasons, we support in Eastern Europe was suddenly in need of car repairs. Because of the generous gifts from our Hoffmantown family, The Mission Ministry was able to provide assistance for the car’s repairs. We were only able to provide assistance because of the gifts given to the Special Mission fund. This fund allows us to help not only provide emergency assistance to our missionaries, but it also helps send Hoffmantown members into the field to spread the Gospel. Thank you for helping us keep the message of the Gospel alive and thriving.
