HOPE (Holy Orthodox Primary Education) is a ministry for little ones ages 40 days - 4 years old.  We invite moms or Yiayias to join us each Friday morning for fellowship, faith and fun! This ministry teaches and exposes our youngest stewards to our Orthodox faith, Saints, Feastdays, the Bible and hymns. It's also a great way for Moms and Yiayias to create friendships with others.  

We meet each Friday (unless otherwise noted) at 10 a.m.   At each meeting we have time for, play, prayer/lesson, snack and songs!  This year our theme will be "What We See in the Church". We will explore the Church, talk about the icons, and the various items that Father Sotiri uses throughout the services.  We will also learn more about hymns.  If you have a little one, please join us!  Following is the 2021-22 Calendar:

HOPE GROUP will resume on January 21, 2022 for the first meeting of the New Year!

COMING SOON:  SIGN-UP HERE To Bring a Snack 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!
