New Hope Church Small Groups

At New Hope Church, we believe that experiencing life in community with others is an essential part of our journey as Christians. This is where small groups come in. Small groups are made up of smaller clusters of people from within the church who gather together in different places to build connections with one another, pray with one another, study the Bible, and have honest, authentic conversations. All are encouraged and welcome to join one of our small groups. Check out the list below to find out what works for you.

Most small groups are currently working through The Story. It will be noted below if a group is covering something different.

Young Families / Young Marrieds

Facilitator: Meghan Rose – Steve Kerr –
Meeting Time: Sunday Evenings @ 5:00 PM

*This group is not covering The Story study* This group is targeted toward young couples and families with small children. We will meet every other Sunday evening in different homes (we will provide information about where we are meeting on which dates when the group begins). We will share a meal together at each gathering and take about an hour to go through our study. We know it can be difficult to arrange for childcare – so bring your children along. For the purpose of planning and keeping everyone in the loop, please email Meghan or Steve and let them know you would like to be a part of the group. We are excited to have you join us!
