Jesus always welcomed children! We see a beautiful example of this in Mark 10:13-16. As families are bringing their children before Jesus to lay hands on them and bless them, the disciples get upset and try to send them away. When Jesus sees they were being asked to leave, he put a stop to it saying “let the children come to me”. He then lays hands on them, blesses them and goes away on his journey. We do not know how long He prayed or any additional interaction that may have taken place between Jesus and the children, but for those few moments, when Jesus lays his hands on them and blesses them, those children were in the best early childhood program EVER!
Our desire as we service the families and children in our community, is to have the best early childhood program ever. We may not match the touch of our savior or even come close to it but we will do our best to make sure that the children we serve know that they are loved and cared for by our staff and ultimately by Jesus who is the Christ.

Ceroncia dances her way to a bright future
Alexia is a very talented young artist. Her Christmas card drawing won the contest this year and her fourth grade class is very excited about it! They get to have a pizza party since the winning artist was from their grade.
Alexia has been attending Voice of Hope for almost 4 years and will turn 10 on December 29th. Her favorite activities at Voice of Hope’s after-school program are playing outside, Bible study lessons, and of course, arts and crafts. She says that she loves the Bible study classes because they help her understand more of what she learns at church. She wrote one of her favorite verses on her card, "A Savior has been born.” Luke 2:11
One of Alexia’s favorite memories at Voice of Hope is when they went on a field trip to see the movie “BFG” and she loves her coaches. She especially likes that they help her read. She is currently reading the book series, “Bad Kitty.” Alexia is a straight A student who is described by her coaches as friendly and respectful; a true servant leader in her classroom.
