  • 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.

  • GRIEFSHARE

    GRIEF RECOVERY SUPPORT GROUP

    MEETS: Currently on break - check back for new dates


    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. 




  • FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY

    MONEY MANAGEMENT CLASS

    You CAN take control of your money.

      

    Financial Peace University (FPU) is a nine-week class on money management by financial guru Dave Ramsey and lead locally by volunteers at Hope. We will walk you through the basics of budgeting, dumping debt, planning for the future, and much more! 


    Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be.




women's ministry

  • JAMES: MERCY TRIUMPHS

    WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: MONDAYS at 6:30 p.m. 


    James, Jesus’ own brother, started out as a skeptic. See how one glimpse of the resurrected Savior turned an unbeliever into a disciple. Bible scholars compare James to the prophet Amos. In other ways, James more closely resembles the Book of Proverbs than any other New Testament book. Topics in this study include: joy, hardship, faith, reversal of fortunes for rich and poor, wisdom, gifts from above, single-mindedness, the dangers of the tongue, humility, and prayer. This is an 8-week study by Beth Moore.



  • THE BOOK OF JAMES

    WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: TUESDAYS at 6:45 p.m.


    In this 6-week study, we will read through and discuss the book of James.

  • ENTRUSTED: A STUDY OF 2 TIMOTHY

    WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: WEDNESDAYS at 1 p.m. 


    We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves. In this study you will be encouraged to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live a life of faithfulness. Entrusted: A Study of 2 Timothy is a six-session study by Beth Moore.



men's ministry

  • BATTLE PLAN FOR PRAYER

    MEN'S BIBLE STUDY

    MEETS: TUESDAYS at 7 p.m. (ongoing)


    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.
