In order to grow spiritually, we have to be connected relationally. That is why we are offering a variety of opportunities to connect and grow at Hope. If one of these groups looks interesting to you, then we encourage you to take the initiative to step out of a row and into a circle.

Thrive – A Place for Women to Connect

Thrive is a place where women of all ages and stages connect weekly for teaching and conversation. The casual atmosphere creates a warm and welcoming place where each woman can know and be known by others.

Each week, Thrive offers a large group teaching, table group conversation, and sharing centered on the day’s lesson. Our desire is for women to be encouraged as they explore and deepen their understanding of God, while at the same time cultivate new and meaningful relationships with other women. The collective creativity, personalities, experiences and expressions of women combine at Thrive to generate a fun, lively and warm place for connection and growth.

Sprouts , a pre‐school ministry for infants through pre‐schoolers, is offered during the morning session. Basic childcare is offered for the evening session.
