At HOPE church we love family, and our children are an integral part of our family! Our desire is for children to encounter God's love as we demonstrate His heart, and that they would then reach the world with the same love.

Something changes in Zechariah after going to HOPE Kids . . . he’s more aware of the Spirit. . . he’s more curious, pondering, dreaming, imaginative. Thank you for partnering with me in raising Zechariah for the Kingdom.

HOPE Kids is a friendly, fun, energetic environment where children learn the culture and principles of Kingdom living. This is done through a bible-based curriculum that contains multi-media elements, practical application teachings, activations and spiritual activities, and games or crafts that reinforce each lesson.

The mission of HOPE Kids is to establish a foundation of healthy family and supernatural living. We desire that every child have relationship with God and with loving people, so that they will be empowered to pursue and fulfill their God-given destiny.

Tim & Rebecca 





Timothy and Rebecca Culp both enjoy serving at Hope in the children's preschool ministry. Timothy a Wyoming native and Rebecca raised in Florida, have now settled here in Casper. They have both a son and a daughter. They feel like they found a long lost home when they came to Hope. Along with serving God they both work in healthcare, Rebecca at Outpatient Radiology and Timothy at Rocky Mountain Oncology. They love the spiritual rewards they receive in serving the pre-schoolers. They value the pure faith and uplifting spirit of the children. They also enjoy spending time with their horses. 

HOPE Kids Pre-School is a God-adventure for ages 3 through kindergarten. This fun time includes prayer, worship, a bible lesson, memory verses, crafts, snacks and always some good play time. We use a bible-based curriculum that teaches life application principles along with the stories.


HOPE Nursery

This is a safe and fun-filled environment for children ages birth through 3. The services will include a snack time and possibly a movie time; but will be full of play and interaction with loving adults.
