The Wilson County Community Help Center

Good morning New Hope! Anita Drew has informed me that the food pantry at Wilson County Community Help Center is in need of some specific donations.  They need canned fruit, canned soup, and pork-n-beans.  If you are shopping today or tomorrow go ahead and pick up some of these items and bring them with you Sunday.

This Sunday at New Hope

Sunday, September 23 – Sermon Series “Faith Looks Like This!” (Foundation Scripture – James 1:22-25) Scripture – James 4:1-17 Message – Faith Looks Like This! – Part 4 “Becoming Self-less” Selfishness is one of the most difficult things for a person to overcome. The desire within each of us to seek what “I” want is a tremendous tool that Satan uses to keep us distracted from God’s desire.  It even oftentimes shows up in our prayers as we present to God the things we need for God to do for us.  James describes the many dangers that result from selfishness and presents the only proven path leading us from selfishness to selflessness. There are mighty things happening at your church every Sunday …Come and See (and then Go and Tell)!  – Pastor Paul   We look forward to seeing you this Sunday at New Hope Cumberland Presbyterian Church!

Men’s Ministry Prayer Breakfast

The next regular meeting of the New Hope Men’s Ministry will be Saturday, September 8 at 8:00 in the church kitchen. (This is a week later than usual due to the Labor Day weekend). Our devotional topic will be “prayer”. Have you ever asked yourself how God hears and understands millions of prayers prayed at the same moment?  How does God have the time to hear them all? How does your prayer cut through the “clutter?”  Author C.S. Lewis in his book “Mere Christianity” offers a unique perspective that we will discuss.
