Adult Ministries

Life Groups

LIFE GROUPS focus on the study of a special topic or book with a small group of adults.  Life Groups are semester based and seasonal, with semesters running 6-8 weeks in fall and spring.  Learning, growing together and making life application are the main goals of Life Groups. 


Groups are newly formed each semester, some meeting in homes, some meeting Sunday evenings at Hope.  Childcare is provided for all the groups that meet at Hope, while only some home groups do.  If you have interest in leading a LG, contact Pastor Dave. 

Gro Groups

GRO GROUPS focus on providing support and encouragement with a starting point being one thing each in the group has in common - their X Factor.  The X Factor could be anything from a shared experience, to a role you share, a topic you all want to pursue, to an activity you all love to do, to a common goal, to an event you support -  the possibilities are almost limitless. This ‘doing-life-together’, while giving each other support & encouragement as you go, is a Gro Group’s main goal.  Groups exist for as long as members find benefit.  The frequency of most GG’s is once a month, but can vary. Contact the leader of a group to find out more. New groups form as needed. If you have interest in forming and leading a GG, contact Pastor Dave.

Essentials of Discipleship

ESSENTIALS OF DISCIPLESHIP is a 40 week course studying the core of Christian discipleship. The goal is to make progress toward spiritual maturity, to grow in your knowledge of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, and to evaluate whether leadership in the church might be for you.


Five classes make up the EoD course: BIBLE, S.H.A.P.E., DEVOTION, DOCTRINE, & LEADERSHIP. Essentials is great for beginners in the faith as well as seasoned disciples.
