Special Request…I want to thank all of you for the prayers, calls and good wishes for my Dad. The road continues to be long and hard and I am sustained by your love and prayers. My father is now alert but remains in serious condition. I was hoping you might take a moment to send him a card…hoping that an overflowing delivery of love and support might cheer him on in his fight. You don’t have to know him, just let him know where you’re from (New Hope). His address is Michael Kielley % Select Medical Hospital 801 Braxton Place Madison Wisconsin 53715. Thank you all for your ministering to me at this challenging time in my life. Pastor Tim
Summer Food Drive - SHOW YOUR AGE!!!
Summer often sees a slump in donations to the food pantry…but oddly hunger doesn’t take a break for summer. New Hope is going to fight hunger in July. We are asking everyone to bring in donations of food items for the pantry. And we want you to bring in a specific amount. Just add the numbers of our AGE together and that’s how many items you should bring in! So if you are 52 years old you bring in 7 items. It will be a a lot of fun and we will help feed our neighbors!

Where Did I Put That Map?: Expectations and the Journey of Marriage
When is the last time you unfolded (or Googled) your marriage map, acknowledging and evaluating expectations that you hold? Whether you are newlyweds, marriage veterans, the type that asks for directions, or the type that wants to find your own way, taking time to focus on expectations can be a great way to boost or reinforce your marital satisfaction. God has given you your spouse as a precious gift. Join Professor Paul Johns, Associate Professor of Human Development and Human Science at Messiah College on Friday evening, September 9th and Saturday, September 10th as we enjoy time together focusing on how to love our spouses with a grace-filled expectation map.

You have the option to place the amount of your choosing in the Hannah’s Grace collection bin or you can donate the full amount of the necklace in your name or in memory of someone. Thank you-Julie Baral.
ACTS 4:32 Ministry Launched February 1. We have launched a special emphasis on prayer beginning February 1. In the Book of Acts we are told that “All the believers were one in heart and mind.” We want to spend a moment each day in this type of unity. To participate in this ministry is very simple.
1. Set your phone, your iPad, your watch, your computer, or even your alarm clock
To ring each day at 4:32 PM.
2. Check our New Hope Website where the Prayer Request of the Day will be listed.
3.When your alarm goes off….pray for that request.
It’s that simple. But imagine for one minute out of every day we will all be united in heart and mind as we pray together. How beautiful and amazing will that be!
You will notice in the chair pockets blue prayer slips. If you would like to include someone in the prayers of the community during worship this morning please place their name on the prayer slip and pass it to the center aisle.
