Life Groups

Community is central in our mission to follow Jesus and share His love. We want everyone at New Hope to be connected relationally. One of the main ways we pursue community here is through Life Groups—small communities that meet virtually or in people’s homes—where we talk about things that matter and share life together. Groups come in all shapes and sizes: weekly, monthly, family-friendly, men's, women's, morning, daytime, evening... you name it!

  • What types of groups are available?

  • Many of our groups form around different stages of life: families, 20s & 30s, seniors, and intergenerational. We also have mens groups, womens groups, and common interest groups.
  • What should I expect when I go?

  • Life Groups are shaped by their members, and each has its own personality, but in general, you can expect weekly gatherings of conversation, food, prayer, discussion of a Bible passage or topic, and/or discussion about Sunday’s sermon. Life Groups are not classes and the leader isn’t necessarily an expert with all the answers. As groups discuss the Bible, members are able to ask questions, share learning, and encourage each other in applying the message to everyday life. Our groups also serve together - sometimes that happens during the regularly scheduled meeting time; at other times it happens outside the meeting.
  • Can I bring my children to group?

  • Generally speaking, Life Groups are designed for adults. Some groups do meet regularly with all their children present. Other groups with children, men and women alternate meeting and occasionally the whole group meets together.
