  • 1 JOHN

    ADULT BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: Wednesdays at 6 p.m. beginning April 10


    "We all go through ups and downs in our Christian faith. Whatever the struggle—whether outside of us or inside—we often feel ourselves blown about by the winds of emotion or circumstances. Yet God calls us to lives of increasing consistency, with the evidence of our inner transformation becoming more and more apparent as the months and years pass by. How would you characterize your relationship with God—consistent and fruitful or sporadic and parched? 


    John knew that we would never find in ourselves the faithfulness God requires. Instead, we have to place complete trust in the work and grace of God, believing that He will certainly conform us to the image of His Son, Jesus. That sense of being grounded in God only comes when we set aside our sin in the pursuit of the one true God. Or, in the words of John, “if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us” (1 John 4:12)."    (summary by Chuck Swindoll)


    This 6-week study will begin Wednesday, April 10.

  • GRIEFSHARE

    GRIEF RECOVERY SUPPORT GROUP

    Currently unavailable - check back for information on the next session of GriefShare


    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.

  • BATTLE PLAN FOR PRAYER

    MEN'S BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: TUESDAYS at 6 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.
