Community Groups

Community groups are at the center of our life together at Hope Chapel. A typical group is about 10-20 people and multi-generational (kids are welcome in all groups!). They meet on Sunday evenings about 3 times a month to share a meal and then spend some time in prayer, Scripture study, and fellowship, and they serve together once a month.


We are Sonya and Kenny Crawford, a couple of empty nesters who enjoy filling our
lives with family and community. Our group appreciates laid-back get-togethers
centered on food, sharing, and tackling deep questions (sometimes through wisdom
and study but often through humor and humility).

We range in age from 11 to 81. Our group is rather large but could benefit from
more college students or young adults. We meet in the Northwest area of


We are Danny & Ashley Donovan and Griffin & Erin Kale.  Our group is primarily comprised of families with elementary-aged children and young professionals.  We value serving together, laughing together, and walking alongside each other in daily life. We gladly welcome anyone who would like to join our group, and we are especially in need of a few older families or individuals.

We meet in Northwest Greensboro on Sundays from 5:00-6:30pm.


We are John and Emily Freeman and we have twin girls in high school and a son in middle school. Our group includes several young professionals as well as families, including kids ranging in age from infant to high school. We typically meet in the Lindley Park and/or Hamilton Lakes area. 
While John leads us in care and conversation, we have a highly engaged group where everyone provides one another space to share about God’s work in our lives. We place a high value on listening, soul care, and the presence of God in our midst. We always make space for laughter and good food. 


We are Bret and Laurie Grieves and the Community Group we lead meets in the Northwest part of Greensboro on Sundays from 5:30-7:30pm. 
This CGroup is made up of couples, singles and families with K-12 school age children. We enjoy our Sunday evenings getting to know one another deeper by sharing a meal, playing fun games, discussing the sermon on a more personal level and hearing about how God is at work in the lives of the group members.


We are Kevin & Jan Hanner, empty-nesters with two adult sons.  Our community group currently ranges from families with young kids and high-schoolers to fellow empty nesters.  We’d love to add some college students or other young singles, but are open to folks of all ages and backgrounds.  We value fellowship, authenticity, and growing in Christ.  We meet in our home in NW Greensboro (near Greensboro Day School).


We are Aaron and Wendy Morrow and Todd Jones.  We are a great mixture of young and old, singles, couples and families.  We enjoy spending time with one another inside and outside our group meeting.  We also really value praying with and for another, providing a safe place for people to be vulnerable and  growing together in Christ.  
We are in need of a few families, but anyone is welcome, so please come visit.  We meet in the Sunset Hills/UNCG area of the city on Sunday’s from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.  


We are Daniel and Andraya Northrup and our community is mainly made up of young families, with some college students, grad students, and empty nesters to balance us out. Our community group is alot of chaotic fun, and a typical night will have tons of kids running around the house while we eat and fellowship together. Our time of study together is focused mainly on building relational equity with one another as we share our stories and struggles with one another, all with the hope engaging with Jesus Christ on a heart level as well as an intellectual level. 
We are in need of some older families and couples to continue to help balance out our group that skews younger. We typically meet in the Lindley Park area from 5:15-7:15 PM


We are Nanette and Jim Osborne. We have lived in Greensboro for over 30 years and were part of the launch team that started Hope Chapel. In our Community Group, we value our meals together every week, we value sharing our lives with one another, and we value everyone’s opinion.

Most weeks, we discuss the content of the sermon from that day, thinking more deeply about the passage and topic and trying to understand how it applies in and to our lives. We have young children, college age folks, young couples, and not-so-young couples (ie, empty nesters). We meet in or near the Starmount neighborhood.
