Sunday, February 24, 2019 Scripture – Psalm 37:1-11,39-40 Message – “Focus!” Doesn’t it just make you furious when people who are corrupt and evil prosper and enjoy great success in life? It just isn’t fair is it? Maybe it even gets to the point that you sometimes consider throwing away your faith and just doing whatever you have to do to be successful. Do you feel this way sometimes? We all do, if we are honest. The psalmist understood this feeling very well and had some significant advice for those who have become focused on the success of evil people. We look forward to seeing you this Sunday at New Hope Church!
Hello New Hope and friends, I have added “and friends” because some folks who are not members or attendees of New Hope have asked to receive my “Pastor Paul’s Ponderings”.
The next regular meeting of the New Hope Men’s Ministry will be Saturday, March 2, 2019 at 8:00 in the church kitchen.
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 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!
