Welcome to the Life Group directory! Life Groups are the primary atmosphere in which we learn and practice Jesus’ command to “love others” at Hope Church. We are convinced that Life Groups are vital to the spiritual formation of everyone, and would love for you to join the group that best fits your station in life. The Life Group term schedule for 2021 – 2022 is listed to the right for your benefit.

In the table below you will find updated information for all of our Life Groups. Feel free to contact the leader of the group or groups which most interest you for more information. Do not feel as though you have to commit to a group the first night you attend. We want you to take the necessary time to discover where the best place for you to grow will be. If you have any questions about our Life Groups, or if you don’t see one that fits your life, please contact us, and he will get back to you as soon as possible.
