We believe life change happens best in small group gatherings we call Life Groups. Life Groups meet throughout the week in homes, apartments, coffee shops and restaurants. While each group is unique, there are five general group types: men’s, women’s, single’s, couple’s and everybody. Groups meet during scheduled semesters with short breaks in between. During the Fall and Spring semesters groups meet for 12 weeks and during the Summer for 8 weeks.

How Do I Join a Life Group?

Joining a group is easy. We offer several opportunities to get involved with a Life Group:

  • Visit the Life Group table after a Sunday Worship Celebration: A newhope leader will talk with you about Life Group options and send your information to the campus Life Group coordinator who will be in touch.
  • Connect Card: A convenient way to learn more is to simply complete a Connect Card and mark that you’re interested in learning more about Life Groups. Your campus Life Group coordinator will follow up and help answer any questions you have.

Interested in leading a group?

Great! Life Group leaders help us realize our vision to teach believers the Bible! While we’re not looking for theologians or scholars, we are looking for people committed to the vision of newhope church through membership. The downloadable application can be returned to the Life Groups point person at your campus. If you have questions, use the campus-specific email links below.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is childcare provided at Life Group?

Not all groups offer childcare. The type of care available in groups that provide it varies. Some groups have group members share childcare responsibilities, others share the cost for a sitter, while others make outside arrangements.

How often do groups meet?

We suggest groups meet on 3 weeks on/1 week off schedule, especially for new groups. We find this provides a good balance for relationship building and schedule flexibility. However, not every group chooses this schedule. Some groups meet weekly and some meet every other week, while others meet on fixed weeks like 1st/3rd or 2nd/4th Tuesdays, as an example.

Groups follow a three-semester schedule each year: Fall, Spring and Summer. The Fall and Spring semesters are 12 weeks each, and the Summer semester is 8 weeks. Between semesters groups take a brief break.
