Hope Church is busy on Wednesday nights! We have a variety of different classes and programs for adults, youth, and kids. Some of our programs include Bible study, youth and kid activities, worship, marriage and parental support, and more. We have something for everyone. See a full list of our programs below.
*Please check posters on campus for possible room changes
South Hall • Teachers: Rev. Rufus Smith (Senior Pastor) & Dr. Eli Morris (Senior Associate Pastor)
This in-depth study of Genesis is NOT for Bible-reading beginners, although beginners may benefit. The first four weeks in Genesis will cover chapters 1-11: the creation, men & women, the fall of angels and humans, the destructive flood and restarting the human race. Knowing the past beginnings will help us successfully live in the present/future. Register at the top of this page.
Galatians Discipleship Training
Room 232 • Teachers: Global Missions Trained Leaders
The goal of this class is simple – to equip you so you go and equip others! Multiply. Make Disciples. Fulfill the Great Commission. Following the methods of Biblical Education by Extension (BEE), who has been training church leaders since 1979, this class will use interactive methods and explorative questions to make the classroom come alive. Using the book of Galatians, you will go deep into the word. We will take an inductive study approach to observe, interpret, and apply one of the most important writings of Paul.
After this eight-week class, you can choose to attend a two-day certification course and become a certified BEE Facilitator. Hope Global Outreach will connect your newly certified skills to teaching opportunities around the world. These opportunities can be fulfilled in person or virtually.
Remember, God does not call the equipped. He equips the called. We each have unique gifts and this class is an opportunity to enhance your gifts for the purpose of the Kingdom. Register at the top of this page.
Room 234 • Facilitator: Mom's PM Leadership Team
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. Register at the top of this page.
START: First Things First
Room 303 • Teacher: Todd Davis
Christianity—thousands of years of history, billions of followers around the world—where do I even begin? START: First Things First is a class all about the basics! Whether you are brand new to Christianity or just need a refresher, this class is for you. We will study the Bible and Start Here, by David Dwight and Nicole Unice, to fine-tune our understanding of the basics of Christianity. Register at the top of this page.
GROW: All Things Spiritual
Room 222/224 • Teacher: Chad Johnson
Ephesians 6:12 ESV, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”
Like wireless internet, antena-broadcasted radio, and gravity, it is easy to forget that there are invisible things around us that control big parts of our lives. The same is true in the spiritual world of Christianity. The physical things that we can see are controlled by invisible things—spiritual things. In this (invisible) spiritual world, there is good and there is evil and both are persuading us at all times. Register at the top of this page.
Room 230 • Teachers: Rev. David Morris, Hope Staff

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! Register at the top of this page.
