For everyone

  • CONNECT GROUPS

    SMALL GROUP

    MEETS: Various times in people's homes or at Hope


    At Hope, we believe we need to meet one another in face-to-face relationships in small-group settings. Gathering in rows just isn't enough. We have many groups meeting throughout the week where you can connect with others, encourage and be encouraged, and grow in your faith.

    50+ FELLOWSHIP GROUP

    MEETS: 1st Sundays at Hope - following the service.

  • HOPE ON TARGET

    TARGET SHOOTING GROUP

    MEETS: Various dates/times at an offsite location.


    The goal of Hope On Target is to provide Christian growth, friendship, and fellowship through fun and engaging shooting events carried out using NRA Guidelines for the use of personal firearms. 


    Our shooting events are planned to give members the opportunity to enjoy the shooting sports while at the same time making friends and providing support to each other. By following NRA guidelines, you will learn safe handling of firearms while also having the opportunity to increase your shooting skills. We accept everyone whether they call themselves a novice or an expert. Also, you do not need to be a member of Hope Community Church to participate in our club. Club events consist of fun shoots, NRA shoots, and trap shoots. Come join us for support as well as a chance to learn and practice the shooting sports.


    Hope on Target is done for the 2017 season. Check back on our event page for information on the next scheduled event in 2018.

  • THE QUEST: AN EXCURSION TOWARD INTIMACY WITH GOD

    WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: TUESDAYS at 6:45 p.m. or WEDNESDAYS AT 1 p.m. 


    There Is No Quest Without Questions

    The crooked punctuation mark at the end of a sentence speaks of curiosity, interest, and perhaps doubt. A question is an invitation to vulnerability, to intimacy. The Bible does not shy away from such an invite. Over and over we see the people of God asking questions of their Creator. We also see the God of the universe asking questions of His creation.

    The Quest is a challenge to accept the invitation. In this six-week excursion with Jesus, Beth Moore uses questions from Scripture to lead you into intimacy with the One who knows you best. Learn to dig into the Word, to respond to the questions of God, and to bring your questions before Him. Let the crooked punctuation mark be the map that points you into a closer relationship with the Father.




  • SPIRITUAL WARFARE

    WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: TUESDAYS at 6:45 p.m.


    What is spiritual warfare? How can I recognize it? In what ways does it affect me? The Bible has much to say about the temptations and struggles you face day by day. This 9 session study by Jack Kuhatschek will deepen our understanding of our supernatural struggle and direct us to the source of power and hope.

  • DANIEL: LIVES OF INTEGRITY, WORDS OF PROPHECY

    WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: MONDAYS at 7:15 p.m.


    The prophet Daniel faced unbelievable pressures—to compromise his faith, to live in a hostile culture, and to confront temptations and threats. Today, believers face many of the same trials. This 12 session study by Beth Moore examines how believers can develop integrity in our modern-day Babylon, and then explores prophecies from the time of Daniel through the second coming of Christ.

  • AGENTS OF BABYLON

    WOMEN'S BOOK CLUB

    MEETS: MONDAYS at 6:15 p.m.


    Join us as we read Agents of Babylon by Dr. David Jeremiah. This book describes the earth-shaking events in the Book of Daniel through the eyes of its characters,

  • FORGOTTEN GOD: REVERSING OUR TRAGIC NEGLECT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

    MEN'S BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: TUESDAYS at 7 p.m.


    In the name of the Father, the Son, and ... the Holy Spirit. We pray in the name of all three, but how often do we live with an awareness of only the first two? As Jesus ascended into heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit—the Helper—so that we could be true and living witnesses for Christ. Unfortunately, today's church has admired the gift but neglected to open it.This study by Francis Chan rips away paper and bows to get at the true source of the church's power—the Holy Spirit.

  • MEN'S BREAKFAST

    MEN'S FELLOWSHIP GROUP

    MEETS: 3rd Saturdays at Hope - 8 a.m.


    Who doesn't love breakfast food? Enjoy a Saturday morning meal with the Men of Hope. We ask that you please sign up at the church prior to each month's event so we can save you a seat.
