At Hope Fellowship, we believe that life change happens best in the context of relationships. We desire to see individuals come together to form lasting friendships and walk through life together. Life Groups are the core of Hope Fellowship. Life Groups are designed for fun, interactive times to help us grow to be more like Jesus. During these times we eat a meal together, discuss God's Word together, and discuss the issues and challenges of life. We promise we do not have all the answers. We have just learned that life is much more fun when you have friends to walk with you. We also recognize that everyone has the desire to be known, loved, and cared for. Welcome to life groups!
Why should I join a group?
We realize that forming closer relationships with the neighbors and new faces on Sunday morning is a challenge! That's why Life Groups are so important to Hope Fellowship. Groups, like nothing else, provide a place to build authentic relationships in a personal, comfortable environment. Here, we hang out, catch up, and join in dynamic discussions about spiritual truth & growth with people just like ourselves. We simply have fun! Our goal is to build a community where people CONNECT, GROW, and ENGAGE.
I'm so busy during the week that I don't have time for anything else...
One of our concerns here is the demand of everyone's schedules. We have fervently pursued a simple church calendar that keeps each member focused on one single process and few events. We are not program stacked, but believe that once you experience a Life Group, you will agree with us, that this will be that refreshing time of your week, you desperately need!
But I don't know much about the Bible...
That's OK! Our studies are always designed to be rich, interesting and relevant to all people regardless of background. Topics and types of studies will vary from time to time. Just ask!
What if I don't want to join in the discussion?
Many people find that once they have experienced the warm and encouraging environment of a life group that they feel comfortable asking questions and participating. With that said, each person must begin to share, participate, and ask questions as they feel comfortable.
What if I can't make it every week?
No Problem! While everyone is encouraged to be consistent in attending (and we think you'll want to!), we know things come up. Also, some groups meet every other week.
