Marriage & Family

The Marriage & Family Ministry at Hope is focused on connecting with one another to build friendships and a supportive community -- a community where couples and families are encouraged to grow strong in their marriage, their relationships and their walk with God. We want families to feel a sense of ... well ... family.

That’s why we offer a wide variety of classes, events and resources for everyone to get plugged-in! Come join us, we’d love to have you!

Small Groups

Hope is a big place and it can be easy to get lost in the crowd. Without a community of friends sharing common goals and beliefs, life can be lonely and even discouraging. Visit the Small Groups page for more information!
