Hope Communities bring authentic relationships
HoCo’s are the heart of the church, and they meet throughout the week in homes all over Austin. HoCo’s are available for all ages and all stages of life, and they are the best way to develop relationships and get plugged in.
Modeled after the early church as we see in Acts 2:42-47, the believers in Christ met together to grow in their faith and live out the mission that Jesus had for them. Through real relationships, we sharpen each other according to the God’s word, and we invest in the lives of those around us. All HoCo’s are different, but the generally follow the same format – which involves fellowship (sometimes a meal together), worship, reading and discussing the Bible together, and prayer. This is a great opportunity to live life with each other, and to understand and develop God’s vision for us.
