Life Groups

…experience life as it was meant to be

New Hope Presbyterian Church (EPC) Fort Myers, FloridaAre you looking for community? This is the place. New Hope’s Life Groups allow us to experience community, and life together, as it was meant to be. Life Groups meet regularly for fellowship, and a time of discussion and learning from recent sermons, or various bible/book/videos. Study materials vary from group to group depending on preferences. If you are interested in joining a Life Group, please contact Eddie Spencer at

What is a Life Group?
Life Groups are co-ed, small groups usually meeting in homes (but not exclusively) which encourage fellowship and service together, and nourish a feeling of belonging to the Body of Christ. Life Groups run throughout the calendar year. Some are seasonal for winter residents, or those who prefer meeting during the school year. Want to know a little more? Watch two New Hope members share their experience with a Life Group.

What kinds of Life Groups are there?

  • Life Groups are small (about 6-12 adults, depending on the group).
  • They are designed to be eclectic… for everyone!
  • Groups will gather on different days, at different times in order to accommodate the lives of real people.
  • Some groups will be designated “child friendly” with appropriate care available.
  • We look forward to matching seasoned wisdom with young adults so that our Life Groups will reflect New Hope’s greatest assets.

Is there homework required? I’m crazy busy these days.
This is the easy part! If your Life Group is a sermon-based study, all you need to do is listen to the Sunday sermon and show up on your meeting day to discuss its application in your life. We will dig a bit deeper into the scriptures referenced and share how God speaks to us through His Word. Groups that choose to study other materials may have reading requirements.

I missed church on Sunday. Can I still attend my Life Group?
Yes! If you missed Sunday worship, the sermon is usually available here online by Wednesday afternoon. It can be played on your computer or downloaded to an mp3 player. CDs are also available in the church office. Call ahead and we will set one aside with your name on it.

Can I host a Life Group at my home?
Yes! If you are interested in hosting a Life Group, please contact Eddie Spencer at with the location, time, and day of the week you would like to meet. Life Groups currently meet in many locations throughout the Lee County/Fort Myers area.
