Adult & Family ministries


The early church met together in homes and experienced caring relationships. We believe that authentic groups provide the context for Christian community for people of all ages. These are places to be real and to be loved.

We can become more of the church we are called to be, and we can grow more, as we grow in groups. This means we will follow the Acts 2:42-47 pattern as we care about each other’s needs, pray together, and share together from God’s word.

Hope offers several opportunities to connect with others in small groups and classes.


    Dinner Groups meet together once a month to gather around a table for food and conversation.

    If you are interested in joining or starting a dinner group, please talk to the church staff! 

    Watch for information on the next round of group signups.


    Meet up with other guys from Hope before work for breakfast, a cup of coffee, conversation, and a study of God's word. This fall, we will be reading through the book of Acts.

    Monday mornings at 6:30am, beginning September 11, at Rise N Shine Cafe in Niles (map).

    "Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted" by Priscilla Shirer - a 7-session Bible study

    Interruptions. They're aggravating. Sometimes infuriating. But how we handle interruptions actually tell us more about ourselves. What do we do when God interrupts our lives? Many times, like Jonah, we run! Priscilla redefines interruption and shows that interruption is actually God's invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was revival in an entire city.

    Wednesday afternoons at 1pm beginning March 20 at Hope.
    The cost of the participant’s guide is $25
