Connecting people to each other, and our Savior Jesus Christ, is the central focus of our weekly Connect Groups here at New Hope Community Church and in the broader community outside our church walls.
New Hope Connect Groups are smaller groups of people meeting throughout the week, both here at the church & throughout the community to study the Bible, make new friends, serve the community and simply do life together.
This semester, each group is following New Hope's "Life On Mission" series.
Winter/Spring Groups began the week of January 13th.
If you're new to New Hope and would like to get involved in a Connect Group, we recommend checking out our Sunday Morning Groups as a good way to get plugged in. Stop by the Welcome Desk in the Lobby to find out what groups are open.
