WHAT IS HOPE.NET?
It Is MiniChurch

MiniChurch is exactly that: a Miniature Church. It is a model of the first century church that early Christians experienced, before the establishment of institutionalized denominations. Early Christians met in private homes where they could meet their extended family in a warm, personal setting, safely exercise spiritual gifts, stretch their faith, and sharpen one another as iron sharpens iron. We can achieve that same kind of kinship when we experience a MiniChurch.

In MiniChurch you will discuss what we received from the weekend message presented by Pastor Don Cason, under the leadership of a Leader who facilitates the meeting. Friendships are made, encouragement is found, and growth in the Lord all happens in MiniChurch.

WHY IS MINICHURCH IMPORTANT?

If the weekend services are considered the teaching or lecture time (classroom), then MiniChurch has to be considered the lab (practical application), a place where you can come and discuss the Word. If you didn't understand something, answers can be found. MiniChurch is a place where you can talk about how the Word applies to you personally.

Prayer is an important part of MiniChurch. The Word tells us that when two or more are gathered in His name, He is there in their midst. When a MiniChurch comes together to pray, lives change as you are supported by others who care for you.

Friendships are built in MiniChurch. There is no such thing as a lone ranger Christian. We need each other--the Word tells us that over and over. Some of your closest and longest lasting friendships will be found in MiniChurch.

HOW CAN I FIND A MINICHURCH?

You can find out specific locations and times for any MiniChurch by looking out on our front table during the weekend services. You can also call the church office at 371-9263, or under ministries on this website. Most of the MiniChurches meet on Wednesday or Thursday nights unless otherwise indicated. We recommend that you attend different MiniChurches until you find the right one for you.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT MINICHURCH?

MiniChurch meets for about an hour and a half. The evening likely begins with a fellowship time with refreshments brought by members of the MiniChurch. Worship songs are usually sung, followed by a discussion based on the weekend sermon and how it applies to you personally, as well as a prayer time where you can pray for each other. Trained lay pastors called "Leaders" lead your time together.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:

MiniChurch exists to provide direct pastoral care, leadership training, interactive ministry, and Christian fellowship for the people associated with our larger body.
