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.
MEETS: 2nd and 4th weeks of the month in various homes
A Life Group is simply an ongoing relational gathering, a little flock or cell group of believers. In this warm and friendly environment there are seven to fifteen people who care for one another and support one another in their Christian lives. It’s a time of free and open discussion, filled with laughter as well as encouragement. A Bible discussion occurs aimed at applying the truths of God’s word to everyday life.
In these healthy, loving groups, people feel cared for and express God’s love to one another.
MEETS: 1st Sundays at Hope - following the service.
Prime Timers get together on the first Sunday of every month for a luncheon after the Sunday service. The group is open to anyone aged 50 and older. No sign-up is necessary... just come and enjoy the meal.
MEETS: Wednesdays 9 a.m to 11 a.m.
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.

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.
(A STUDY OF 1 AND 2 KINGS)
MEETS: WEDNESDAYS at 1 p.m. beginning January 22
When hard times come and it seems God is deviating from the plan we assume our life should follow, we’re more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. It’s then that we begin to press into our ways and our own timing. No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try. The group working through this six-session study by Lysa TerKeust will meet on Wednesday afternoons at 1pm beginning January 22. The cost of the participant’s guide is $16.
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.
