  • THE LIFE YOU'VE ALWAYS WANTED

    ADULT BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: Wednesdays at 6 p.m. beginning February 6

    Facilitated by: Jim Blake


    Is your faith more like an "insurance" policy? If it is, you're missing out on the best part of Christianity---God's life-changing power! In this six-week study, John Ortberg reveals how prayer, meditation, fasting, servanthood, confession, and other spiritual disciplines can lead to the joyous, fulfilling life that you truly desire. 


    If you’re tired of the status quo—if you suspect there’s more to Christianity than what you’ve experienced— we invite you to join us on a road to transformation and spiritual vigor that anyone can take with The Life You've Always Wanted: Spiritual Disciplines for Ordinary People.

  • GRIEFSHARE

    GRIEF RECOVERY SUPPORT GROUP

    MEETS: Thursdays at 6pm

    Facilitated by: Janie Grahl


    It hurts to lose someone. Find help at GriefShare.

    GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.


    It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.


    GriefShare groups meet to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.

  • FINDING I AM

    How Jesus Fully Satisfies The Cry Of Your Heart

    WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: WEDNESDAYS at 1:00 p.m.

    Beginning February 6


    What is the deep cry of your heart? That ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it.

    In this interactive, in-depth study by Lysa TerKeurst, we will look at the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John and learn to:

    • Trade feelings of emptiness and depletion for a more personal fulfillment from knowing who Jesus is.
    • Stop living like a slave to your circumstances by training your heart to embrace the life-giving freedom God wants for you.
    • Gain a better understanding of how Jesus' words 2,000 years ago are so very applicable to the answers we are searching for today.

    Register now to be a part of the group of women from Hope who will study this topic together. The cost of the participant's guide is $15.

  • INTEGRITY

    Living the Truth

    WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: TUESDAYS at 6:00 p.m.

    Beginning March 5


    Today it can be considered rude to speak of right and wrong. In such a culture we need to be reminded of the Biblical value of integrity. We invite you for this 11-week study with us as we find contentment in who we are and how we follow God as we become people of integrity.

  • BATTLE PLAN FOR PRAYER

    MEN'S BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: TUESDAYS at 7 p.m. 

    Facilitated by: Randy Stevens


    Prayer should be your first plan of attack in all of life’s battles, not your last resort. If you want to experience the joy of mightily answered prayer, then it’s time to engage with God at another level. The Battle Plan for Prayer, written by the Kendrick Brothers (War Room, The Love Dare), begins with prayer’s core purpose, its biblical design, and its impact throughout history. Readers will be guided scripturally through the fundamentals of how effective prayer works, inspired towards a closer, more intimate relationship with God, and shown how to develop specific prayer strategies for each area of life.


    Register now to join a group of men at Hope who will study this topic together. The cost of the study materials is $23.
