Because growth happens in small groups

2021-2022 Growth Group Info

At New Hope, one of the first steps we take to grow on the journey together is joining a Growth Group. See Group Bios and Sign Up below:

Each week, groups have a Biblical discussion. Some groups focus on topics of interest or a stage of life (i.e. Parenting, Mom to Mom, Financial Peace). Others Groups focus on a a specific book of the Bible.
