Insanity: Repeating the Same Thing Over and Over Again Hoping for Different Results
Teacher: Dr. Eli Morris (Sr. Associate Pastor) • South Hall

Albert Einstein’s’ definition of insanity is "doing the same thing over and over again and hoping for different results."  Often times we find ourselves getting the same results from our relationships, the use of our time, how we think about ourselves and our inability to overcome certain temptations.  Eli will talk about trying to do things from God’s perspective in order to have better results.


Teamwork Makes the Dream Work - A Marriage Series
Teacher: Rev. Freddie Albaugh (Marriage & Family Pastor) • Located in the Church Lobby by the Main Information Desk

This marriage series is interactive, fun and a place we can be a little silly.  We will use unconventional exercises to help you and your spouse continue to develop teamwork in your marriage while learning more about your relationship and each other.  It’s guaranteed to make you laugh as you learn.


Moms at Hope (PM)
Teacher: Rev. Jessica Morris (Assistant Pastor of Ministry) • Room 230

This class is an evening offering for moms with kids of all ages who are seeking community and desiring relationships with other moms.  In this class we will work through the joys and tensions of being a mom.


Introducing Hope
Teacher: Rev. David Morris (Membership Pastor) and Hope Staff • Room 303

This class will help you understand what Hope Church is all 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 preregister by emailing David Morris, David@HopeChurchMemphis.com  **NOTE: this will be a 4-week class and will meet from 6:30-7:30pm.


Generating Power Goals
Teacher: Dr. Paul Stanley • Room 227

Life is full of stress and all of us experience more than our share of the struggle that comes with a stressful life. Experiencing the stress of life does not necessarily mean you will be stressed-out. How stress impacts you is, to a great extent, determined by how you manage stress. Both the science of psychology and the Bible have a lot of insight and instruction that can help you manage stress in a helpful way. The first step in managing stress well is to generate goals that can help you live an abundant, balanced, and highly satisfying life. In this class you will learn how to form goals that will go beyond S.M.A.R.T. goals. You will learn how to form power goals. Power goals have the power to motivate you, to enhance your self-esteem, and to program your mind to begin meeting the goals.


Spanish 101
Teacher: Megan Chrisley and Hope's Global Outreach Ministry • Room 234

Have you been to a Spanish speaking country and could not communicate? Would you like to communicate with your Spanish speaking neighbor? Learn basic conversational Spanish at our class sponsored by Global Outreach Ministries.


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!

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!
