Every Christian is a disciple. To be a disciple means to be a follower. We follow Jesus! Discipling is doing spiritual good to someone else.

Growing as disciples and discipling others in Jesus’ mission is what we are about as a church.
This involves following and becoming more like Him as we seek to engage in His mission.

It is the goal of Living Hope for every person to be discipling another person either one-on-one or in very small groups, and to be discipled by someone else.
Who are you discipling? Who is discipling you?

The adult ministries seek to fulfill this mission as a community of believers through a variety of groups and settings that foster discipleship.

Sunday Life Communities

Kick Off September 10, 9:00 AM in the Activity Center

Sunday Morning Adult Life Communities are mid-size community groups that meet from September to May before the service at 9:00 AM. We believe that a variety of contexts to meet together as the church is important for our growth as disciples. These groups are a great place to provide connection points and to do so in community. The more traditional title for this ministry could be “Sunday school,” but it’s much more than that; it’s a ministry about community, fellowship, and learning and growing together. We have several groups that meet together every Sunday morning.


Persistent Prayer is part of a series called “Blessings of the Faith” by P&R Publishing. One purpose of the series is to think biblically about elements of our faith that we hold dear that we know we ought to engage in regularly.

Biblical Theology is one in the 9Marks series of books that are founded on two basic ideas: the local church is extremely important to a believer’s life, and the Word of God must be central for all faith, thought, and conduct. This work was written to help the church understand what biblical theology is, how we all do it, and how crucial it is for accurately telling the story of Scripture and understanding any part of Scripture.

Small Groups – Year Round

God has hard-wired us for community. It is vital that we are connected to others because spiritual growth flows out of two basic commitments: to God and His Word, and a commitment to significant Christian relationships. For these reasons, we believe that having small groups to discuss the Bible, life, family, and faith in a relaxed environment are so important. It is our goal for everyone to plug into a small group! Living Hope’s small groups meet regularly to study God’s Word as well as support one another.
