Sunday, July 22 Scripture – Ephesians 2:11-22 Message – “Jews and Gentiles” One of the truly sad and at times reprehensible parts of the story of our faith is the animosity between Christians and Jews. In the Bible it was at first between Jews and Gentiles. As you follow the story there is plenty of guilt to be shared by both sides. In the apostle Paul’s letter to the church at Ephesus, he reminds them that God’s plan from the beginning included both Jews and Gentiles and both would be brought together through Jesus. Join us this Sunday as we dig deeper into God’s Word and discover how relevant this ancient Letter is to us today. There are mighty things happening at your church every Sunday …Come and See! – Pastor Paul We look forward to seeing you this Sunday at New Hope Cumberland Presbyterian Church!
Good afternoon New Hope! I visited my urologist today and he has scheduled me for surgery Thursday at 2:00 p.m. The surgery is to remove the kidney stone(s) if that is causing my problem and if not to determine what is causing the pain I am having. Please pray for me and Dana as well as those who will be caring for me. Due to my health issues we will not have our Wednesday evening Bible study. Hopefully this will resolve this issue and when I receive my injections for migraines that will get those under control. Thanks for your prayers and concern. Grace and peace, Pastor Paul
The next regular meeting of the New Hope Men’s Ministry is Saturday, August 4, 2018 at 8:00 in the church kitchen. There will be a devotional with a lite breakfast (sausage/ham biscuits, donuts and such), time for prayer, and as always friendly and casual conversation in a relaxed atmosphere. All men in the church and in the community are invited to join us for faith, food and fellowship!
Sunday, August 5 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!!
A Community Prayer Mailbox is another new ministry at New Hope. Some folks in our neighborhood may not have a church home, but are in need of prayer. A white mailbox has been placed in the church parking lot in which anyone in the community can drive up or walk up and leave prayer requests. These will be removed by the pastor and prayed for on Wednesday evenings and on Sunday mornings. There are paper and pens, as well as information about the church in a container under the mailbox. Tell your neighbors!
The new member mailboxes are now in the Welcome Foyer! Many thanks to Ray and Gina Jones for crafting this lovely piece of furniture, that is functional and adds to the beauty of our Welcome Room.
