Family was God's idea from the beginning. Whatever your unique challenges, we want to help equip you as you lead your family. You may be looking for ideas on guiding your children with strong values. Are you wondering how to lead them to love Christ and live godly lives in a culture that doesn't always make it easy? Parents are the most important influence in a child’s life and we want to support you in ways that make sense for everyday life.

Parent Community

Select Sundays
Parents of all ages and stages are invited to gather for a time of prayer, encouragement and teaching from the Bible that applies to being a gospel-focused family that moves toward Jesus together. Taught by Holly Miller, Children & Family Ministries Director. 

New Hope 4 Kids

1,600 kids are in Hennepin County foster care. That number would more than fill the NHC Worship Center. With 766 kids available for adoption in Minnesota, there are a wide range of ways we can extend the love of Jesus as we advocate for some of the most marginalized children.

Whether you’re considering foster care, sponsorship or adoption, or you want to pray for and support those who do, New Hope 4 Kids is a place to learn more. This ministry is being launched to express God's heart for children by providing resources, training and counsel to help us respond with hope together. Connect with Children & Family to discover your fit in this ministry.
