Groups at New Hope

Connect to God. Connect to Each Other.

Spiritual growth and maturity happens through small groups, which was Jesus’ model for discipleship and how the New Testament Church functioned on a day-to-day basis. Find a group that suits your God-given interests, passions, and talents in any of five areas.


Life Groups are comprised of 6-12 people who meet regularly in a home setting. These groups connect spiritually and socially as they share faith, fun, and fellowship along with life experience and prayer. Browse through New Hope’s current Life Groups, and fill out the group interest form to get connected!
