HOPE Group

HOPE (Holy Orthodox Primary Education) is a ministry for little ones ages 40 days - 4 years old. We invite Moms and/or Yiayias to join us on Friday mornings every other week for snacks, songs, playtime, and a lesson with prayer. This ministry introduces and teaches our youngest stewards about our Orthodox faith, Saints, Feast days, the Bible, and hymns. This year our theme is Discovering the Church! Our lessons will help familiarize children with the Church building, icons, and liturgical objects.  

We meet every other Friday (unless otherwise noted) from 10 - 11 a.m.   At each meeting we have time for, play, prayer/lesson, snack and songs.  There is a $10 fee for the entire year which will be used for arts and crafts.  Please join us! It's a great way for Moms to create friendships with others! Contact Presvytera Stefanie for further details and questions about this ministry (presstefanie@yahoo.com). 

Note:  We serve "fast-worthy” snacks since our meetings take place on Fridays.  Although home fasting rules may be different, we encourage our children to begin learning about fast days, even from now. Fruits, veggies, crackers, and graham crackers are some good options!
