growth groups


At Hope Church, our mission is to introduce people to Jesus and fuel their love for him. One of the ways to do this is to join a Growth Group. We are looking to rebuild our Growth Groups and need your help. We are asking anyone with an idea, a thought, a need or desire, encouragement, fellowship or learning to let us know what you want. If you are willing to lead a group, let us know. Watch the inspirational announcement from Curtis Platt and Farrah Cannon ←. Send your ideas to Pastor Mark (

Chilly clothing drive 2023


Last Day to Donate

February 5, 2023

For many families and individuals throughout the United States, finding a warm winter clothing is a challenge each year. Warm clothing provides warmth and safety during frigid weather and are essential items for people in need. Hope Church is collecting warm clothes for the Warehouse of Hope. The Warehouse of Hope provides clothing and food for the financially challenged families in Paulding County.

Bring in your gently worn clothing, thick socks, boots, coats, scarves, hats, gloves and mittens to the Love Community wall by February 5th. Let us share the love of Jesus with the families of Paulding County.

making a difference.
