We believe that love is not a sentiment, but a tangible expression of what God has done and is doing for us. God has blessed us to become blessings to each other in our church family. We are committed to supporting the members of our fellowship in their spiritual, emotional, and material needs. Community groups are a great way to grow and share life with other people of hope.
Here is a list of community groups that currently meet:
SundaY: Adult Study
Meets: 9:00 AM each Sunday at Community of Hope in the church conference room. When you enter the church's double doors, go through the first door on the left, down the hallway of offices to the end conference room.
This group is currently studying a book called Growing in Christ. For more information, contact Rich Fleming at email@example.com
MONDAY: COLLEGE AND CAREER BIBLE STUDY
Meets: Every Monday night from 7:00-9:00 PM at Community of Hope.
The College and Career Bible study is open to any college students or young professionals, and is aimed at deepening our faith, growing together in community, and looking at how we can live out our faith in every area of our lives. We catch up on our weeks over coffee and baked goods, study the Bible together, pray together, and often end up playing music, drinking coffee, and hanging out afterwards. For more information, please email Jolaina (Jojo) Jesser at firstname.lastname@example.org
