Family Night Hope Groups


McCharen Hope Group

Wednesdays, 6-7:30 p.m. at Hope Chapel

A family-oriented group that gathers to love, worship, and study God. We focus on growing in community through prayer, sharing, Bible study, and practicing the “one anothers” of scripture.

Tompkins Hope Group

Wednesdays, 6-7:30 p.m. at Hope Chapel

This is an open group for all ages, married or single. Our group’s focus is  “getting back to basics”, which means Bible study.  We’ll dig into a 7 book series by NavPress Design for Discipleship.  We are currently working through Book 6, Growing in Discipleship. The books are relatively small and have typically 4-5 lessons in each one.  If you are looking for encouragement in your walk with Christ, or need a better foundation of scripture for your walk, please join us on Wednesdays at Hope Chapel for these studies. There is some homework each week.

This group’s focus is the reading of a lectionary and prayer. A lectionary is a book or a list that contains scripture readings for every day of the year. The lectionary readings include scriptures from the Old Testament, the book of Psalms, and the New Testament. After reading the scripture the  group will discuss the theme for that day’s reading.
