Community Groups are designed to get people out of rows and into circles/groups creating environments for friendships to form, Bible study, prayer, community projects, and discipleship of new believers.  Community Groups help us live out our value that 'No One Goes Alone'.

The health of our community groups will determine the continued spiritual depth and formation of the people who call newhope home, and we are very excited that you have made a commitment to grow and develop as you serve your neighbor and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our goal is to empower you with tools that will help you become more effective in your leadership development, as you serve God and your community. The following is a list of resources that can contribute to your growth and will give you some ideas to help you customize your approach while becoming arrows out. This list is not all encompassing and will continue to grow.

Let me know how our team can help!
