Adult Mid-Week Connection 
All adults are invited gather on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:00 pm to fellowship, pray,  and study.   
We begin with a time of prayer in the chapel from 6:30 -7:00 (you can come pray silently or aloud or just rest in God's presence). From 7:00 - 8:00 pm the adults then engage in an informal DVD-based curriculum study.

Music Ministry
Hope has both a choir and a choral praise team.
During Lent, the Praise Team meets from 6:30 -7:15 pm and the Choir meets from 7:15 - 8:00 pm. The praise team usually also practices at 8:30 am Sundays. See Marcia Oeffner. We also have brought back a new children's choir for 2016. They practice occasionally during Sunday School.

Hope Youth Group
Hope Youth Group meets on Wednesdays 6:30 - 8:00 p.m and Sunday morning 9:15 - 10;15 AM am for youth in grades 6 through 12. Mike Fast and Jamie Lebold serve as our youth leaders. The goal is to have the youth connect in four ways: With one another in fellowship, with God in discipleship, with the church body in worship, and with the community in stewardship and service. 
**During Lent, Youth Group and Youth Leaders meet with other adults in our Wednesday's "Getting It Together" campaign in the Sanctuary 6:30-8:00  -  No Sundays)

Other Opportunities
During the week there are other discipleship and fellowship opportunities. There is a women's Bible study held on Tuesday mornings at 10:00 am. A young adult small group meets twice a month in various people's homes as well.
