Most of our extended ministries run from September through April. You will want to confirm the exact dates with our website calendar.
Adult discipleship classes meet on Sunday mornings through the school year at 9:50 a.m. One of our adult classes expounds on the scriptures with only the Bible as their text. Typically other classes are offered, such as a Ladies class or a specific study class.
College Class meets weekly through the school year. Led by Dr. John and Mary Swart and Zack Varpness. John and Zack expound on various Bible texts or topics particularly interesting to the college age students.
High school youth meet weekly through the school year and occasionally through the summer. Normal group time takes place at the church on Wednesday evenings. Socials, retreats, mission trips and conferences are often scheduled. Our youth Pastor, Clevey, continually seeks to find ways to challenge and develop our teens.
Middle school youth meet weekly through the school year and occasionally through the summer. Normal group time takes place at the church on Sunday evenings from 6-7:30. Socials, retreats and special events are commonly scheduled. Along with other volunteer leaders, Pastor Clevey directs the Middle School youth program.
Kidz Klub includes grades K-5 who meet Sunday night in a three part program: Bible lesson, scripture memory, and game/craft are the three main elements to the evening.
Little Kidz Klub is similar to Kidz Klub, but designed for children 3 years to Pre-K.
Life Groups meet in addition to our Middle School and Kidz Klubs on Sunday night. Adults, who desire, have divided up into home groups. Each one, for the purpose of digging deeper into God’s Word through conversation of the morning sermon. Two other key elements to this time is the fellowship designed to know & care for one another more, and prayer time. These groups are a place where we lift up to the Lord our praises and supplications.
Kidz Kare is our nursery care, which is provided for most all-church activities for new-born through 3 yrs of age.
Women's & Men's Bible Studies along with other select small groups are often available in the mid-week. Check the church calendar for updates or feel free to contact one of our staff.

Mercy Ministries is a designated New Hope team, whose purpose is to seek ways to intentionally reach out to others, either among our body or the community, serving as the hands and feet of Jesus.
Get Acquainted Class and Membership Classes are scheduled several times a year.
Get Acquainted Class is a time for new attendees to get to know the DNA of our church and meet and interact with others new to our body, as well as some long-time attendees. We welcome and encourage those who are still in the decision process of finding a church home.
A membership class is led by one of our pastors and is designed to share more about the Evangelical Free denomination and specifically New Hope. This class is a required step toward membership at New Hope.
