At Hoffmantown Church Our Vision is that each person would be introduced to Jesus Christ in order to Know Him and Follow Him.

God has led us to define three main areas of church life, environments if you will, to help nurture a growing relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

First is the environment of Surrender. This environment is our Sunday morning worship service where we come together to praise the Lord and to learn more about Him through the teaching of His Word. Our desire is to surrender to the Lord in every area of our lives.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service.” Romans 12:1 ASV

To follow Christ is to have an abandoned life for Him or to be surrendered.

Our Life Groups are designed to equip God’s Church to serve one another and the world. It’s our prayer that led by God; you will journey toward deeper understanding of God’s call for your life.

Life Groups are provided to study the Word with a specific topic in mind to further equip and cultivate a believer’s walk with Christ. Life Groups are groups that have a specific time period and seek to foster environments that cultivate discipleship, worship, and Biblical life skills for service. With a Biblical foundation in place, this series of classes is designed to further equip believers within a focused area of service.

“BI 301 Hermeneutics and Bible Study Methods” | Ray Mondragon | 6pm-8:30pm | January 10th- May 9th | Room B212
The course attempts to guide the student through the most important principles (Hermeneutics) and procedures (Bible Study Methods) used in the discerning of the intended meaning of biblical passages. The approach used in discerning the meaning includes a regard for the laws of grammar, the facts of history, and the framework of the context of these passages. An essential ingredient in the whole process is the illuminating work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the Christian. This class is a complete seminary course. However, all are invited to join and sit in.
Materials: Non-Credit participants: Non-paraphrased study Bible. Credit participants: Non-paraphrased study Bible & Textbook (contact equipping@hoffmantown.org for book list).

Winter Semester Care Groups: January 10 – May 9, 2018.
Wednesdays | 6:30pm – 8:00pm

The purpose of Hoffmantown Care Groups is to come alongside those who are hurting to provide hope, encouragement, the love of Christ, and strategies to help participants heal and grow. The bible verse most used by the Care Groups is II Corinthians 1:3-4, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

Confidentiality is a cornerstone of Care Groups, and participants are asked to read and sign a Statement of Understanding, which outlines expectation of participants to ensure a safe classroom environment conducive to care, support and healing.

There is no charge for the Care Groups, but most have companion workbooks/materials available for purchase at a nominal fee. Materials may be purchased in the Bookstore, the Life Resource Center (LRC), unless otherwise noted. Some groups may have limited enrollment (restrictions on size of class) and pre-registration is highly recommended for all Care Group. Other groups are open groups and can be joined at any time during a semester.

For more information or to pre-register for a Care Group, please contact Tabitha Baker at 858-8624 or TabithaB@hoffmantown.org.


“GriefShare” | Terry & Karen Heames, Dave & Betty Scott and Debbie McNeil |6:30-8pm | January 10th-May 9th | Room B216
It may seem impossible to feel optimistic about the future. If you have lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, it may seem that people do not understand the deep pain you feel. This can be a confusing time of isolation and painful, difficult questions about unknown challenges and experiences. Each weekly “GriefShare” session covers a different topic that builds upon the prior week and has three distinct elements: a video seminar by Christian experts with personal stories, group discussion with focus, and a workbook-based personal Bible study and reflection to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.
Materials: Workbook, available in the bookstore.


“Divorce Care” (Men ONLY) | Ron Marler | 6:30-8pm | January 10th- May 9th | B214
Most people will say that separation and divorce are the most painful, stressful experiences they have ever faced. This can be a confusing time of isolation and painful, difficult questions about unknown challenges and experiences. Each weekly “DivorceCare” session covers a different topic that builds upon the prior week and has three distinct elements: a video seminar by Christian experts with personal stories, group discussion with focus, and a workbook-based personal Bible study and reflection to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.
Materials: Workbook is available in the bookstore.

Paul’s letter to the Colossians was written during a time when the church at Colossae was surrounded with false teachings and philosophies. Paul focused on knowing who Jesus is, knowing what He has done for you, knowing who you are in Him, and knowing what you are to do for Him- all keys to spiritual stability and growth. Join us for a 6 week study of this letter which is so important to us in the times in which we live.
