Project 7 (students ages 13-18) meets every Wednesday at 7pm in the New Hope Lobby. THERE ARE DIFFICULT QUESTIONS IN LIFE…and the relevant teaching in an environment where questions are not dismissed, and students are safe to ask, and BIBLICAL ANSWERS ARE GIVEN, provides New Hope the opportunity to partner with you in developing fully devoted teenaged disciples of Jesus Christ.
Small Groups sessions each week offer opportunities to build relationships, and grow deeper in the Word.
Throughout the year, Project 7 has many activities for students including summer camp, worship arts camp, creative arts, events, fun days and more.

Small Groups are one of the easiest ways to connect to others and grow personally at New Hope. We believe that life change happens in the context of authentic relationships. Small Groups are designed to encourage lifelong friendships, build community and help you grow and thrive in your walk with Christ.
Small Groups are also where we pray, care for one another, and are missed if we don’t show up. Regardless of your age or interest, there is a group that’s right for you! Small Groups meet throughout our area and at various times. Small Group opportunities can be found on our website.
New Hope’s Small Groups meet on a tri-semester basis: Spring, Summer (fewer groups) and Fall.

We believe Worship and The Word are fundamental to who we are as a church. At New Hope, we find our identity and worth through worship….where our lives are changed! Once there is an encounter with HIS presence, we are no longer the same. His presence is what we long for every time we gather together.

We’re excited you’re interested in partnering with us in ministry and cannot wait to get to know you. Our vision is to help develop highly influential God-worshipers. In order to accomplish this, we focus on developing these five foundational values:
CORE is our understanding of worship.
CHARACTER is how we conduct ourselves as worshipers of Jesus.
CRAFT is honing the skills to operate in your gifting with excellence.
CHEMISTRY is how we engage the congregation in ministry.
COMMUNITY is your sense of being a part of a family of people with similar interests and callings.
Worship isn’t just a song, or the first 25 minutes in a church service. It’s much too big for that! Worship is a lifestyle of obedience that flows directly from our love relationship with the Lord. We offer small groups and discipleship classes that help you discover what it means to worship in Spirit and in truth, as we allow His life-changing glory to flow through us and let His character develop in our hearts.

New Hope has chosen to partner with PCL (People for Care and Learning) in Southeast Asia to share the hope of Jesus Christ by being devoted to breaking the cycle of poverty. PCL addresses individual variables within the cycle of poverty at once by providing holistic, sustainable solutions and creating replicable projects. We are dedicated to serving the poor by helping children, widows, and their communities worldwide reach their full potential through five main areas: Sustainable Farming, Build a City, Children’s Homes, Common Grounds Coffee Shops, and Learning Centers. As a result, we help support dozens of Missionaries and Learning Centers that empower those new to faith to share the gospel of Christ!
