Kids Hope

Kids Hope 2Kids Hope USA was started at Sunrise Church in 2011.  We partner with Woodland Elementary School of Lafayette, Indiana.  This ministry is comprised of a leadership team to assist the director which enables mentors and their prayer partners to give at-risk children hope.

Purpose: Kids Hope USA builds caring relationships…one child, one hour, one church, one school. 

Values:  Kids Hope 1

  • Children- Because every child matters  
  • Relationships- Because love is only possible person to person
  • Faithfulness- Because if I say I will, I will
  • Prayer- Because it is our language of hope 


H:  Helping to meet the emotional, social and academic needs of at-risk children by giving them a one-to-one, Jesus with skin on, relationship with a mentor from our church.

O:  Owned by our church.  This is our ministry to children and families in our neighborhood.

P:  Prayer is the foundation of our work.  Each adult-child relationship is wrapped in prayer by a behind-the-scenes prayer partner from our church.

E:  Elementary school children are our focus.  They need mentoring most because they are at a critical time when values are formed, self-esteem is developed, and academic skills must be acquired.
