If you’re new to Hope Summit, you may be wondering “What’s next?” We’ve designed a class just for you! Starting Point is a place where you can get your bearings and find out where we’ve come from and where we’re headed as a church. Plus, it’s a great place to meet our staff, ask questions, make friends, volunteer, and find out what we have to offer for you and your family.
Groups are one of the best ways to connect with others at Hope Summit. We have all sorts of groups for all ages: couples, singles, sports, and other fun stuff! We have ongoing training for our group leaders to keep them encouraged and to ensure a great experience for all. Groups are also a great way for a larger church to keep that intimate family feeling when you come on Sunday, so you don’t want to miss out on this critical part of life at Hope Summit!
The Hope summit Path is designed to help you grow in your spiritual life by providing opportunities to develop:
1. Intimacy with God
2. Deeper relationships with other followers of Christ, and
3. Influence with non-believers.
The Hope Summit Path begins with Base Camp. Base Camp opportunities are available for
you and your family, regardless of where you are in your spiritual development. The “Starting Point” class, small groups, volunteer opportunities, and care connections are all welcoming environments for seasoned believers and for those who are new at Hope Summit.
The Hope Summit Path has three different paths to lead you as you take the next steps in your journey of following Christ.
The “New-comers Path” is designed to help those who are new to the Church or new to what it means to be a follower of Christ. The steps on this path will help you understand what it means to be a follower of Christ, how to identify with Christ in Baptism, how to connect with God through the Bible, and help you connect with other believers in the Church.
The “Explorer Path” is designed for those who want to go deeper into God’s Word and see how it applies to everyday life. Practical application is the keystone on this path as the relevant teaching of the Bible is used to help us grow in our Christian walk. These steps challenge our beliefs, attitudes, and actions as we take God’s Word and apply it to decisions about life. Finances, Parenting, Marriage Enrichment, and other felt needs are addressed on this path.
The “Adventurer Path” is designed for those who are mature Christians and have a desire to dig even deeper into the teaching of the Bible and what it means to be a fully devoted follower of Jesus. The steps on this path will lead believers to deeper discipleship through in-depth study and discussion with other seasoned veterans of the Christian Faith.
