A Couple New Hope Groups

At New Hope we are moving toward helping people find their spot in a more natural way - without dictating where anyone 'should' plug in. We understand that friendship and biblical community are mysterious, so we'd like to create environments where people have the opportunity to connect naturally.

What I love about these two groups that have just begun is that they have begun out of the leaders' passion. They both felt compelled to bring people along with them in their journey.

1. The Weight Loss Challenge
This group has been started by Pat Klaus. Pat has a passion for helping people move toward health and this group is designed to do just that. So far the group has 11 members and collectively they have lost 35.8 pounds. This group meets on Tuesday nights and this session will go through the week of May 10th. Anyone is welcome to join at any time. Contact Pat for details (330.542.9863).

2. Emerging Woman
This group was begun by Amy Scott. Amy has a passion to help women discover who God has created them to be through exploring a variety of creative mediums. All of us have a little voice that tells us what we "should or ought" to do and this group allows woman to face that voice and see what is true and what is false. For more information on joining, call Amy (330.457.0266).

If you have a stirring in your heart to start something (within New Hope's walls or beyond) Let someone know...Give me a call. Call Paul. Email someone...Who knows, there may be someone who's thinking just like you that could be a partner in ministry. Let's celebrate this journey together!
