Welcome to Hosanna! 

Families are the primary source for faith formation and because of this fact we strive to walk alongside our children, youth and the wider church community to LIVE, LOVE & SERVE as Christ did, so that all may know Him. We hope that you will partner with us to raise faith-filled children through the various opportunities at Hosanna!

Faith Formation

At Hosanna we have incorporated Faith Formation into our Wednesday Night Programming called connect360. Faith Formation introduces children to who God is and helps them learn what God has done and how big God's love is. Children experience fun, relevant and age-appropriate music time, Bible teaching, activities, and discover they are an active part of God’s story.

WHEN: Wednesday Nights September 13, 2017 to April 25, 2018

TIME: 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

WHERE: Upstairs Rooms, we run our program on a rotational, camp style setting. Below is Faith Formation's rotation (schedule subject to change based on church seasons)...

  • Music Time- Led by our Children's Choir Director, Lisa Sauer
  • Bible Dive each week, learning and sharing God's word
  • Weekly Rotation Activity: Crafts, Games, Snack, Science 

COST: $30 per participant

Why is there a COST? Think of this as your child's offering for the entire year, all the funds received go directly back into the program to all God's children. Without these monies the programming would not be able to happen. With your families contribution, we are able to provide Bibles, classroom supplies, weekly activities and opportunities once a month to give back. We are helping to teach our children the importance of good stewardship- to use what God has given us to make a difference in our lives but also others in Jesus' name. Scholarships and family options are available upon request.

On Sunday Mornings we invite you to worship as a family, young and old together. There is no sunday programming for children. We offer instead a kidtalk during worship and our prayground. This is a space for your child to get out those extra wiggles or to refocus their energy with coloring pages, quiet activities and lounging in the kid chairs. We encourage children to be supervised during their time in the prayground, except during the sermon when we have volunteers called Faith Friends monitor our Prayground area. See a message from our Lead Pastor, Linda Friesen to learn about the history of the prayground...

What is One456? The name itself derived from our sense that we are all ONE with Christ, Ephesians 4:5-6 says “For us there is only one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and we all have the same God, who is over us all and in us all, and living through every part of us.”

One456 is an opportunity for students in grades 4-6 to discover and engage in their faith journey through small group time, Jesus-centered teaching, once a month service opportunities and celebrate who God has made them to be! One456- will help create friendships, community and prepare your student for confirmation in 7th grade.

WHEN: Wednesday Nights September 13, 2017 to April 25, 2018
