Welcome to HopeKids! 

HopeKids is Hope Ames’ fun Sunday morning children’s ministry programming for children ages 3 (by Sept. 15 and potty-trained) through grade 5. When your child joins us at HopeKids, they will experience engaging teaching, energy-packed worship, crafts and games — all designed to teach kids about God’s love.
