There are a number of ministries happening in and around Hope; investigate a bit and see what might be up your alley.
Small group fellowships are one really good way to get plugged in at Hope. Nothing’s mandatory or set in stone, so feel free to contact one of the group leaders below and see about dropping in or joining. We have no formal curriculum or structure uniform to all the groups; but in general each group chooses a topic of study from either the Bible itself or and extra Biblical-source and uses it as a springboard for going deeper into the spiritual life.
