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.


HOPE Kids - K -5th Directors

Timothy and Rebecca Culp

 Timothy and Rebecca both have a heart and passion for taking care of and teaching God’s children. Timothy and Rebecca have settled here in Casper where they work in the medical field and own a small horse ranch; their second passion. 
Their passion for children’s ministry started as volunteers in preschool and then led them to serving in the Kindergarten through 5th grade class. Timothy’s passion for teaching the children was further motivated and inspired when he studied about Dwight L. Moody. Rebecca is a loving and dedicated mother and carries her passion to serve others into the children’s church. 

Hope Kids K-5 is a Spirit filled environment focusing on bringing children closer to God and teaching them who they are in Gods eyes. We believe in empowering children to better face today’s world and to live as children of God. We have music worship, bible based video curriculum, prayer, tithes, bible verses, and activations.




Jody Downs

Jody has a gracious and patient-filled heart towards the youngest of Gods children. After attending Grace Bible College, Jody married her husband of 16 years, Travis. As a wife and mother of six children, Jody understands the importance of a nurturing environment and desires to create a healthy, clean, and peaceful place for the young children of HOPE Church. Jody and her large group of volunteers are dedicated to creating an environment of love and care.

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.
