See a full list of our programs below.

Adult Class Descriptions

Freedom From The Inside-Out
Teacher: Dr. Eli Morris (Senior Associate Pastor)

Do you struggle with worry, overwhelming circumstances or temptation? Eli has designed this series to help you break free from the things that keep you bound up inside and unable to live outwardly the abundant life that is possible with Christ. Hope’s Worship Team leads things off with an encouraging time of worship.


Part Two: The Book of Revelation: How the “End” Matters to Me “Now.”
Teacher: Rev. Rufus Smith (Senior Pastor)

By unanimous vote of last semester’s students, we are offering Part Two: The Book of Revelation. Each class includes in-depth teaching and dialogue—Q & A and debate are encouraged! Other key parallel Bible passages such as Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Matthew 24, Luke 21, I Corinthians, I Thessalonians and Jude will be used as well to teach the truth about natural disasters, the Rapture, the location of dead right now, the 7-year Great Tribulation, the 144,000 of Revelation 7, the State of Israel today, the two witnesses in Revelation 11, the Beast and his mark of 666 and the 1000-year Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ on earth. Find out what the Bible really says about heaven and how all these issues relate to your life, now, in real time!


Become a Marriage Mentor 
Teachers: Rev. Freddie Albaugh (Marriage & Family Pastor)

84% of people who attend church say they want a marriage mentor. Yet, only 22% say they have one. What if Hope Church had a group of experienced (not perfect) married couples who wanted to help other less experienced and perfect couples faithfully pursue lifelong love by repairing love and helping others to move from good to great marriages? Are you ready to join the movement and help other couples by becoming a marriage mentor?

Then join us for Training Module One, a four-week series where you will begin the journey. Couples must be married for at least eight years, relational, good listeners, caring and compassionate and be driven to help others. COUPLES WITH PERFECT MARRIAGES do not need to apply since 91% of couples want mentors who have grappled with issues and made it through.

Each participating couple must purchase Drs. Les and Leslie Parrot’s book, The Complete Guide to Marriage Mentoring. All other training materials will be provided at no additional cost. Join the movement and make a difference!


Honoring God Through Your Health
Teacher: Rick Bloomer, PhD -Dean, School of Health Studies at The University of Memphis

Enter this coming summer with a renewed focus on your physical and spiritual health! This class will provide you with the essential tools necessary to improve your overall health, with emphasis on nutritional intake, dietary supplementation and physical activity—all with the main motivation to assume personal responsibility for the temple that God created your body to be. This class will only meet three times: March 20, 27 and April 10.


Mom’s [PM] – Seriously Good News for Stressed-Out Moms
Facilitator: Mom's PM Leaders

More good news for stressed-out moms! Do you feel buried in the ordinary? Then join us for four weeks of practical tips on revitalizing your day and enriching your relationships. This class is a night offering for moms with kids of all ages who are seeking Jesus and desiring relationships with other moms. Each week will include teaching and small group discussion.


All About the Psalms
Facilitator: Ivan and Heather Strong Moore (College Co-Directors), Tori Myles (Young Adults Director)

The book of Psalms in the Bible captures an entire spectrum of human emotion and can inspire with a wide breadth of God’s wisdom, grace and love. The Psalms have a way of being profoundly deep but are also a great place to start reading scripture. In this class, we’ll be exploring some of our favorite Psalms and discussing how they can help us feel, think and worship.


Introducing Hope
Teachers: Rev. David Morris, Hope Staff 

This class will help you understand what Hope Church is about and learn how we help people grow in their relationship with God. This is our process for membership here at Hope, but participation doesn’t require a commitment to join the church. There are no strings attached! Please pre-register by emailing David.Morris@HopeChurchMemphis.com. **NOTE: this will be a four-week class and will meet from 6:30-7:30 pm.


for kids…

Wednesday Night Kids exists to truly blend faith and fun! Energetic music, exciting activities, and engaging safe relationships help us find our hope and purpose in Christ. Every kid will walk away with the gospel on their level so that God may be imprinted into their lives and that joy may be shared with their friends. Never forget, Jesus was once a kid! Join us to celebrate life as He would with Hope 4 Kids. All children’s activities begin at 6:30 pm (doors open at 6:15) and end promptly at 7:30 pm.

Wednesday Night Special Kids and Adults is a place where we believe all individuals are created in His image and have a unique purpose. It is our mission to lift individuals to their fullest potential, help them discover their God-given talents, and share those talents within the Body of Christ. Come join our community of faith and fun where we spend time experiencing the One who loves unconditionally, no matter what - Jesus Christ. We will sing, laugh, and use our imaginations during fun learning activities. We can’t wait to see you! To learn more about our program and what to expect on Wednesdays, visit HopeChurchMemphis.com/SpecialNeeds or contact Director Karen Walls.


For Students…

On Wednesday nights at HSM (Hope Student Ministries), we are here to give some midweek encouragement to students in grades 6-12! After a long Wednesday in class, many students come straight to Hope from school, while others get shuttled here by our Wednesday after school pick up vans. Our event is a fun, loud, and semi-chaotic collection of music, games, and teaching full of grace and truth. We want you to enjoy yourself with no added pressure! So bring a friend, and come to the Student Center (Entrance 6) on Wednesday nights for a fun night!
