Small Groups at New Hope
We designed the small group experience at New Hope church with you in mind. Join diverse small groups made up of families, singles, college kids, and seniors at New Hope that have made lifelong friends and grown closer in their walk with Christ through the power of Biblical small groups.
Why Join a Small Group?
The purpose of the Small Group Ministry at New Hope is to be a vessel, through community, for discipleship. You can learn more about our vision for NH small groups in our Small Group Vision Statement.
Small groups play a crucial role in building that “Biblical Community” described in scripture and practiced at New Hope. The small group experience demonstrates obedience to Christ’s commands in scripture not to neglect time together. Hebrews 10:24 states, “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together.” You can experience Biblical, mutual encouragement in love and good works through NH small groups.
