You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up. DEUTERONOMY 11:19
Hope EFC is a family-centred church. We acknowledge our responsibility to nurture families and equip parents so they may be able to disciple their own children. While almost all of our church activities are inter-generational, we do make time for parents and families to dialogue and share their parenting experiences in the light of Scripture.
Parenting God's Way
This is a monthly session held to encourage families with young children. Parents learn how to apply Scripture and support one another in their parenting journey. Lessons are based on Gary and Anne Marie Ezzo’s book, Growing Kids God’s Way.

J.I Packer wrote in his 2013 book, Taking God Seriously: Vital Things We Need to Know that churches today should discover afresh the tradition of Catechisis. This is instruction by word of mouth through the “repetition of established statements of faith to ground our hearts in unchanging truths.” Children of mixed ages join this session based on the Westminster Shorter Catechism.
