Small Groups

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

Here at Hope, we are BIG on small groups!
We passionately believe in the value of small groups to facilitate growth in our Christian walk, as well as deep and lasting friendships within the body of Christ.
The second piece of our mission statement is, "community with other believers", and we want to help make that happen!

Below you'll find some examples of small groups that currently meet. If you don't see a specific group you're looking for, or you'd like to start one, please reach out to Pastor Kelly.
