Encore is Hope's Senior Aduilt ministry that is created for seniors by seniors. Participants organize and serve in various teams or Life Groups based on shared interests and activities suggested by extensive, targeted research and input from seniors. Encore! has a mission to engage senior adults of every ability and interest to experience anabundant Christ-centered life in community with purpose, fun and service.
New participants can sign up to join a specific Life Group that fits their interests and abilities. The teams or Life Groups are responsible for leading and managing their respective group to include planning, organizing, and producing group activities within Hope’s guidelines.
