Our Small Groups


Image goes here.
Life was never meant to be a “lone ranger” journey. God has made us all with a relational need to know and to be known. We believe that the best way to go deeper in these relationships is through our small groups. All of our small groups meet in people’s homes. Please join us for one or more of them throughout the week!

Home Groups 
  • Clements’ home groupMeets Mondays from 7 - 8:30 pm at the Clements’.  We enjoy and encourage one another in conversation and prayer. We also discover God's Word together through overview and verse-by-verse study of books of the Bible. We are currently studying Romans, "the greatest letter ever written,” that changed the lives of the "giants of faith" and countless ordinary folks like us. We want you to jump in anytime! For more info contact Brian or Karen Clements (brian@go2hope.org).
  • Griffin home group—Meets Thursdays from 7 - 9 pm at The Griffin's.  We are currently in the book, “Growing Older and Wiser”, by Dale and Sandy Larsen.  For more info, contact Kelly or Beth Griffin (kelly@go2hope.org).
  • Stewart Bi-weekly StudyMeets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at The Clements' home from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm.  We are currently going through the book "Desiring God" by John Piper.  For more info, contact Jim Stewart (jimathope@aol.com).

Men’s Groups

  • Saturday Morning Men’s Breakfast—Meets the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month from 8-10 am at Gary Grant's. Pressure reveals substance. Heat and pressure reveal what something is made and also transforms it into something different. Think gold – heat purifies and makes it more valuable. The same is true for every man of God – we are tested and that testing reveals what we really believe and if we will really believe it. Don’t run! Pass the test. Bring glory to God. Join us as we begin a new 4-part study series for men, "Tested Tough" by Kenny Luck of Every Man Ministries!  For more info contact Gary Grant (gary@go2hope.org).

Women’s Groups

  • Coffee Connection - We meet every Tuesday at 9 am at Daisy's Artish Cafe (formerly known as Julie’s Coffee) in Lake Villa. (216 N. Milwaukee Ave.).  We get together to have coffee, smoothies, lattes, tea, a choice of some great breakfast pastries, a short devotional, and just have a great time! Invite a friend! For more info contact Karen Clements (info@go2hope.org).
  • Girls' Night OUT  - We gather periodically for a time to connect with each other in a casual, fun setting! Please come to meet, eat & enjoy the company of other women of Hope from 6-8pm.  The location varies.  Please see our website calendar or our Sunday morning worship program for our next time together and location.

  • Twice a month  - Our youth group includes grades 4 through senior high students.  We meet twice a month (1st & 3rd Tuesday evenings) from 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm for a time to connect, to have fun, and to encourage one another spiritually.
