The purpose of the Kidventure Children’s Ministry at Hosanna! is to support families by providing space, opportunities, and resources for children to encounter Christ, to experience His love, and to be transformed by that experience. We guide kids to find their personal relationship with God, and to develop a deep connection to a faith community. We strive to give them a sense of purpose with their faith by providing opportunities to serve others.

Hosanna was an early and passionate adopter of Safe Community practices designed to foster a safe place for children and others to worship and learn. We take seriously the safety of children in our church and in the wider community.

Kidventure meets every Sunday. Children join their families in the main auditorium for the first 15 minutes of our 9:30 worship service, and then are dismissed to their class at 9:45.

Our guiding principles for Kidventure come from Micah 6:8: “You must act with justice. You must love to show mercy. And you must be humble as you live in the sight of your God” (NIrV).  The kids and volunteers in Kidventure endeavor to do all three as they follow Jesus in this life:

  • Act Justly-Love yourself, and be honest and fair.
  • Love Mercy-Love and forgive each other.
  • Walk Humbly-Walk simply upon God’s world and take care of it.

We would love to have your children join our Jesus-centered, children-focused Kidventure! For more information contact Director of Children’s Ministries Kelly Kirk-Wentzel at, or call the church office at 717-626-2560.
