"If they can see you love them, you can say anything to them."
Richard Baxter 1615 - 1691
Care groups provide a starting point for enjoying a real sense of community as a body. They serve as an appropriate context in which we can build genuine relationships, engage one another in spiritual life, and pursue biblical fellowship together. Our groups meet in homes on the first and third Sunday
of each month. Click on the link to find out more details and where each group meets.
In Scripture, parents are given the primary responsibility for the spiritual instruction of their children (Deut. 6:7). We desire to partner with parents, helping them develop Cross-centered kids who have "a love for, a knowledge of, and a dependence upon" Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Follow the link to find out more about how this mininsty functions and how your kids can be involved on Sunday mornings.
If we didn't see this as a ministry then we simply would not be doing it. Because God values people we find that a cup of coffee in the name of Jesus goes a long way in developing relationships. The coffee bar opens at 9:15 a.m. every Sunday and is staffed by the youth of Hope Chapel. Here you will find a great assortment of your favorite coffee drinks and our prices are very reasonable.
We have intentionally chosen not to call anything a men's ministry because it seems the moment we do, it comes to an end. What we find works best for us, is watching the men of Hope become friends and gather as needed. This seems to include things like small discipleship groups, book and bible studies, Saturday morning gatherings with food, teaching and fellowship.
The women's ministry at Hope Chapel is called Women of Hope. It serves to provide additional opportunities for our women to build relationships and minister to one another. Although it can be a challenge with busy schedules, you will find that our gatherings throughout the year will bring great encouragement and joy at the times you need them most.
Our youth meet the second Sunday of every month during the main gathering. It currently includes kids from 7th through 9th grade. The format typically involves a brief time of teaching, some thought-provoking questions, and then a lively adult-led discussion. Everyone is encouraged to participate and to ask questions of their own.
