WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON MY FIRST VISIT?
Living Hope Bryan meets 2500 South College Avenue Bryan, TX 77801 on the former campus of St Michael’s Academy.
Currently due to the pandemic we are taking certain precautions in order to be considerate of others. Our COVID-19 practices can be found here.
Our worship service is held in the gymnasium and as you enter our church family will welcome you, one of our greeters will hand you our information-filled weekend worship guide, and direct you to your seat. Our prayer is that you will truly meet with God as worship through fellowship, corporate singing, and listening to God’s word.
WHERE DO I TAKE MY CHILDREN?
The Pre-School and Children’s Ministry (Hope Kids) are located in the connecting building southeast to the gymnasium It is a relaxed and safe place where our ministry team is committed to teaching your child the truths of Scripture. from birth – 2nd grade. .
Children from 3rd-5th grade attend the worship service with their parents. We will provide an activity bag that will have a listening guide to help your child stay engaged during the service
Every first Sunday of the month we have Family Worship, in which your children (K-2) stay with you in the worship service. At Living Hope we want every family to learn how to worship together as a family. Family Worship is important.
DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING FOR STUDENTS?
Yes, for Middle and High School students. We meet every Sunday morning for a small group Bible Study at 9AM. On Sunday nights the youth have their own service in the Wright building on the church campus (the upstairs room of where the pre-school is located). This is a great time worshiping our God through Song and Bible Study. Our Youth ministry also regularly schedules fellowships, bible studies, and mission trips in order to encourage community within our body.
College Students are a very important part of what we do here at Living Hope Bryan. It is our calling to equip, train and minister to them in a way that prepares them for life in the real world. We treat them as adults and involve them in inter-generational ministry in our studies and ministry. We do have events just for college students, but our hope is to see them grow in the Lord with others in our body of different ages.
DO YOU HAVE SMALL GROUPS?
Absolutely! Our weekly small groups that we call Community groups meet during the fall and spring semesters (a few meet year round) in the homes of church members almost every day of the week. Our Community Groups are vital to the life of our church. Every member is expected to be involved in one Community Group. In our Community Groups we enjoy a more intimate time of fellowship by eating together, studying God’s word, praying together, and doing local mission projects together.
