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.
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!
Happy Tuesday New Hope! Get your yard signs and your invite cards! New Hope’s Worship in the Park is coming up on Sunday, October 14 and we need to get the word out.

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.

Sunday, October 7 at 5:00 in the church office meeting room. We would love to have ladies try this out that are not currently attending CPW meetings. All ladies of the church are technically part of CPW, it’s just a matter of if you are active or not, so let’s get more of us interacting together at CPW. Small groups are THE heart of the church. It’s a lot of fun and you get to learn about someone else and you may get to meet more people! We look forward to seeing you Sunday night!!
