Classes at New Hope

Grow in Your Faith with a Study-Focused Group

At New Hope, our desire is that all of our people are growing in their relationship with God. That growth doesn’t just happen by attending a Sunday morning service. Whether you are at the beginning of your spiritual journey or have been following Christ for years, our Education and Study Group opportunities are designed to aid you in the process of becoming a fully-devoted follower of Jesus Christ.

All classes operate on a drop-in basis unless otherwise stated in the below class description, and are catered to an adult audience. For young adult and kids classes, Sunday school, and activities, check out our ministries page. Please contact us with any questions or details.

Jesus, Up Close and Personal

Destroy What Steals Your Strength

Dale Acheson / Ullestad Chapel

Naturalism: Beyond the Freedom

Jim Stearns | New Hope Java

Naturalism tries to explain things apart from the existence of God or accountability to a higher power. We’ll expose the weaknesses of this worldview by considering how it compares to Christianity in addressing such issues as the origins of the universe, purpose of life, good and evil, love, justice, and moral consciousness.

God’s Solutions to Life’s Problems

The Book of Jeremiah

Pastor Gary Walter | Student Campus Fellowship Hall B

Fulfilled prophesy—it’s one of the undeniable proofs of the authenticity of Scripture—and the book of Jeremiah contains a lot of it. The history and prophesy recorded by this faithful man of God in the midst of great hardship reveals the eternal truth and faithfulness of God’s Word.
