Week to Week

While our Sunday gathering is central to who we are, much of church life plays out during the week. In the spirit of Matthew 28:19-20, where Jesus commands His people to go and make disciples, we seek to live out our commission in our community. Living Hope is not a large church; we have found that our smaller size has been an advantage in living week-to- week life together as a church family, allowing for genuine relationships centered around the Word of God. This is where we strive to follow the early church example from Acts 2:42, in growing in understanding of the Bible, walking life together, sharing meals together, and praying together.

Where does life together happen?

Sunday Worship

This is the main event of the week! We sing and pray, and listen to God speak to us through the preaching of His Word. Children have their own Bible learning time with their teachers in class.

Community Groups

Our community groups meet every other week in church members’ homes around the area. A typical group meeting starts with sharing a meal and conversation , then moving into Bible reading and prayer. Friendships are born, shaped, and fortified by these regular gatherings, and Living Hope Church members make them a top priority. Children are welcome, but childcare is not provided during these meetings.

Youth Activities

Once a month after Sunday service, Living Hope Church hosts our “God Squad” club meeting for the youth of the church. This is a unique space for young people in a pivotal time of life, to make friends, play a game, have snacks, and talk bible and life questions with their senior pastor. This meeting is open to kids 5th grade and up, as well as their parents.

These coordinated meetings are not all that happen in our church, though they are the heart of our week-to-week activity. Seasonally, Living Hope Church organizes game nights, camping trips, bonfires, picnics, community work days, special marriage or parenting classes, and parties. These bigger events, along with coffee dates, playdates, and other little connection times throughout the week, are how church members grow relationships and build community. Through knowing each other, we can live out the command of Jesus in John 13:34-35 to love one another like He does.
