REMINDER: We are on hiatus Wednesday evenings through December due to the busy holiday season, but will resume our dinners and Bible study in January, 2018. The choir, however, is continuing to meet on Wednesday evenings through the end of the year at 6:30 (Except for 11/22, since it is the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and there are no activities).

The cold days of fall and winter will soon be here and with them come New Hope’s Compassionate Hands Homeless ministry. For 2017/2018, the CPW is doing a “Warmth for Winter” program that will help us to begin collecting items that the men we host in the Compassionate Hands ministry will need.
Hello again New Hope! You may remember me saying in the past that one of the goals of the ministry in Haiti in addition to sharing the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ is providing education to as many as possible. Each of our Cumberland Presbyterian Churches there also has a school. As these boys and girls complete their primary education and become young men and women the hope is to send as many as possible on to college. There is a young man in one of our churches who has completed his primary education, has recently married, and is now desiring to continue his education so that he can become a pastor.
From Pastor Paul: We have an opportunity to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey by providing needed supplies. Pastor Pat Driskell of Rogersville Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Rogersville, AL is leaving with a group this Sunday (September 3) to go to the Houston area to assist the Cumberland Presbyterian Churches and others in that area.
The CPW just got our 2nd quarterly check for the Kroger Community Rewards Program for $94.20. We had 9 people with Kroger Cards participating, and 4 of those are friends of someone at our church – they don’t even go to our church!! That is great!! We need to increase the count of 5 of our own people that are signed up though. This is FREE money.
New Hope Church is usually open on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings for worship. The exception would be if the pastor or church session makes the determination not to hold services due to dangerous or adverse weather conditions or other unusual situation. A page on this website will advise you if the church is to be closed for services on Sunday mornings or other times. If the church is open, but weather conditions are unfavorable, the church van may not run its route. This decision will be made by the driver and the decision may not be made in time to be posted to this page. A rule of thumb is that if there are icy conditions or other extreme weather, then do not expect that the van will be running its route. Thank You, New Hope Church
