We believe that love is not a sentiment, but a tangible expression of what God has done and is doing for us. God has blessed us to become blessings to each other in our church family. We are committed to supporting the members of our fellowship in their spiritual, emotional, and material needs. Community groups are a great way to grow and share life with other people of hope.
Here is a list of community groups that currently meet:
SundaY: Adult Study
Meets: 9:00 AM each Sunday at Community of Hope in the church conference room. When you enter the church's double doors, go through the first door on the left, down the hallway of offices to the end conference room.
