Led by Pastor Eddie Spencer from 6:30-7:30pm

CONNECTIONS CLASS (4 week class)
Led by Michelle Myers from 6:30-7:30pm
We will share the story of New Hope and talk about our beliefs, purpose, and core values. We have designed this experience to introduce you to our church staff, various ministries, and mission. If you are a seasonal attendee and would like to learn more about getting involved in our church, or would like to consider affiliate membership, or if you are a full-time resident interested in joining the thriving community at New Hope, please consider joining us!

LIFE EXPLORED (6 week class)
Led by Pastor Stu Austin from 6:30-7:30pm
What’s the Best Gift God Could Give You? What we desire most in life determines our dispositions, our decisions, and ultimately, our destinies. Over six sessions, Life Explored helps people uncover what they’re really living for, and shows how, in Christ, God meets our deepest desire for happiness.

MEANING OF MARRIAGE (6 week class)
Led by Scott and Emily Reese from 6:30-7:30pm
The Meaning of Marriage is a 6 week video study based on the book by Tim and Kathy Keller. Each weekly study will have three components: home study of reading the appropriate chapters before class; group time with video presentation and discussion of questions in the study guide (relevant to both married and single people); and a marriage plan to help married couples apply what they are learning. Please sign up here. The cost of the book and study guide are $20. Books and study guides can be picked up in the church office. Please read the first two chapters before the first class on February 7 and remember to bring your Bible to class. Questions? Contact Scott Reese

The following classes continue to meet:

Led by Brad Starner from 6:15-7:45pm

Led by Jim and Judy Mayer from 6:30-8:00pm
GriefShare is a series of DVD and discussion classes to provide help and community for those who have a recent loss of a loved one or who feel the need for help dealing with a similar loss from the past. A $15 workbook is part of the program that will provide an opportunity to probe in greater depth your own feelings and thoughts about what you are experiencing.  Grief over the loss of a loved one is a common issue in our community. There is emotional pain, as well as confusion, because of misinformation or myths about grief. These classes examine the physical, emotional, and spiritual effect of grief as we walk together on the challenging road to healing. Facilitated by Jim and Judy Mayer, Jim and Christine Glatz and Carolyn Melton will be assisting as well.

Led by David Owen from 6:15-7:45pm
Dave Ramsey will teach you how to secure your family’s future and make a lasting impact on the world around you for Christ’s kingdom. Topics include investments, real estate, basic estate planning and leaving a legacy for both family and kingdom work. For additional information, contact Brad at or call the church office at 239.274.1230.

Led by Darlene Starner from 6:30-7:30
The Oasis be covering “The Daniel Prayer” by Anne Graham Lotz. This study unpacks the prayers of Daniel with the hope that we will learn to renew our own relationship with God in prayer. This is a study in deep prayer that storms the gates of Heaven for grace and renewal starting within our own hearts. Questions? Email Darlene Starner at
