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.

Crawford

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
Greensboro.

Donovan/Kale

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.

Turmel

We are Caleb and Kaitlin Turmel, and our community group meets in the North West part of Greensboro. Our group is composed of a mix of married couples, singles, young professionals and college students.

We love spending time with folks in our community group over a meal together, getting to know each other through fun conversations, games, and other activities. Our community group values connection and caring for one another both physically and spiritually. We welcome any new-comers to our group, and we are specifically open to families with children.

Hanner

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).

Greer/Lindsay

We are Adam and Betsy Greer and the community group that we lead with Nick Lindsay meets on Sunday evenings from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.  The Greer‘s have five children with two children still at home (attending Caldwell Academy).  We typically meet in the Carriage Hills neighborhood or the Sunset Hills neighborhood.  Our group is made up of couples, singles, and families and we have quite a few school age children.  We greatly enjoy being together, sharing a meal, playing games, and digging deeper into the Word of God (typically based on the sermon for that particular Sunday).  We also value prayer time and we will often break into smaller groups to pray for one another. 
 
Ultimately, our goal is to encourage and love one another well as enjoy the blessings of living daily in the Kingdom of God.  
 

Northrup

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

Osborne

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.

Van Patter

We are Michael and Hannah Van Patter. 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 Michael 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 belonging, listening, soul care, and the presence of God in our midst. We always make space for laughter and good food. 

York/Lin

We are a new group primarily meeting in the Westridge Rd area. We value friendship, community, Bible-study, and prayer. We are looking forward to adding new members, would love to have singles and also any new people to Hope Chapel who would like to check out a community group.
