This Sunday at New Hope

“How to Be Blessed!”

That is the title for Pastor Paul’s message this Sunday January 15. It is the first message in Paul’s Sermon Series “WDJS – What Did Jesus Say?” that will focus on excerpts from the Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 5-7, in which Jesus addressed many everyday issues that believers face. It will continue through Sunday, February 26, which takes us to the season of Lent.

Kelsie Morse was unable to be with us last Sunday so she will bless us with special music this week – so be at church to show your support for Kelsie!

And don’t forget to come back to church Sunday evening for our 1st Annual New Hope CPW Chili Cook-Off and Dessert Walk at 6:00 p.m. Fellowship Hall.

We look forward to seeing you this Sunday at New Hope Cumberland Presbyterian Church.

CPW Chili Cook-Off and Dessert Walk

1st Annual New Hope CPW Chili Cook-Off and Dessert Walk – January 15, 2017 – 6:00 p.m. – Fellowship Hall.  This is open to the community, so please invite your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. We will sell you a spoon to eat your chili for a mere $5.00 per person.

This is the CPW’s 1st fundraiser. Our money will be used for our projects throughout the year, including missions, and internal projects and/or CPW events.

Now how about all of those that like to eat that awesome chili that those cooks are going to make? Do you also want a delicious homemade dessert but don’t want to have to make one for yourself? You can win one at our Dessert Walk! We’ll have cakes and other goodies too.
