A Small Group generally consists of eight to twelve adults in the same stage of life who meet weekly for 10 weeks to pursue spiritual growth and healthy relationships. Groups spend time together, study God’s Word, and pray for each other. Most Small Groups discuss the study questions provided by New Hope relating to the weekend sermon.

They meet on various days, times, and locations around Bend to study God’s Word and to support one another spiritually. All of our groups meet for 10 weeks. Many groups choose to stay together and continue to meet for the next 10 week session. At the end of the 10 week session, you can choose to stay with your group for the next 10 week session, try out a new Small Group, create a new one of your own, or just take a break for the next session. It’s completely up to you. The groups meet for three separate 10-week sessions from September through June, taking a break during the summer months.

We value Small Groups so much that we also provide free childcare (18months-5th grade) every Wednesday for any group that needs it. You’ll need to register your child when you register for your Small Group.

If you have any questions, please contact Merrilee at merrilee@newhopebend.com.

Thanks for your interest in Small Groups. We’re praying that you have an encouraging and up-lifting experience this fall.
