Small Groups

What is a Small Group?

A small group, made up of 5-8 individuals committed to personally encourage and challenge each other, is the best place for sustained life change to occur.  

Hope aims to be a church "of" small groups, where small group community permeates the entire congregation, where everyone has a place to belong, and where everyone is being transformed into Christ's likeness.
