New Hope Offering Wednesday Night Worship Service!!
In hopes that we can reach out and welcome folks who might not be able to worship with us on Sunday mornings and to offer another opportunity to worship we will launch a Wednesday Night Worship Service at 6:00 pm.This service will be about 45 minutes in length and will include Holy Communion.

CHURCH NURSERY TO CLOSE... NOT!!!
OK, so you know we have begged, pleaded and done everything we know how to do to get volunteers to help in our nursery. Sadly few have come forward and now due to fewer and fewer volunteers we thought we would no longer be able to offer this ministry to our young families. But, God is great and a young lady from our congregation has graciously decided to take this bull by the horns and allow us to continue hosting a nursery for our young children during the 10:45 service! Thanks be to God!
If you would like to help out in the nursery, please, please please step up and give this courageous young lady a helping hand!

Following dinner the lights go down and the curtain goes up as our children present the musical L.O.S.T. Be sure to join us for this very special evening.
