“Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:24-25)
At New Hope Fellowship, we believe life transformation happens best within the context of community, through life groups (or sometimes known as “small/cell” groups). A life group is a group of 6-12 people who gather on a regular basis in homes or at one of our campuses for the purpose of discipleship‑-growing in relationship with God and with each other. It is a place where we explore God’s Word together, pray and care for one another and in so doing experience God’s transforming grace and love–in community.
Life groups are for everyone, from new believers to regular Church attendees. It’s where we get to live life alongside one another–carrying each other’s burdens through struggles in life, celebrating joys of the journey and serving together in ways that stretch and bless one another–pointing each other towards Jesus.
Life Group Ministry at New Hope Fellowship envisions people connecting to God, God’s people and God’s purpose. That is, as we get together in our Life Groups, we desire to connect to God through Word and prayer—as we discuss how God’s Word applies to our lives and pray for His strength and wisdom. We also desire to connect to God’s people through sharing and caring for one another. As Life Groups become a life-giving experience, we desire to connect to God’s purpose through various ministries and missions—by serving together to live beyond ourselves.
How do I join a Life Group at New Hope?
Our hope is that everyone who attends our Church will be connected to a Life Group. Once you sign up to get connected to a Life Group, you will be plugged into a group based on your geographical location and/or your life-stage. If you are single, you have options to join a co-ed college group, co-ed career group, single men’s group, or intergenerational/mixed group. If you are married, you have options to join a family group (with children), family group (without children), or intergenerational/ mixed group.
