New Hope News Briefs
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ;
This afternoon I learned of the death of our brother in Christ Jim Wolf. Jim and Marian were founding members of New Hope and were instrumental in helping us launch this community we know and love.
Please join me in giving thanks for Jim's life and his service to the Lord and to New Hope Faith Community. We rejoice in the victory that is now his through our Lord Jesus Christ.
"For all the saints who from their labors rest....thy name O Jesus be forever blest."
