Sunday, June 24 Scripture – 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 Message – Choosing Your Team Plowing with a pair of oxen is still practiced in many countries. Two oxen are placed in a yoke together to provide the power needed to plow the field. It is very important to select the oxen carefully. Placing an untrained and undisciplined ox with one who is trained and disciplined almost always proves disastrous. The apostle Paul cautions believers to be very careful about who they become yoked with in life as well. Whether that is a marriage partner, business partner or just a close friend. While we are encouraged to love non-believers and even to spend some time with them, we are not to “team up” with them. 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...
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!
Father’s Day is Sunday, June 17. The ladies of the church will be serving a breakfast (pot-luck casserole-type) in honor of all the fathers and men at 8:30. There will be no Sunday School classes so that the whole church can fellowship together at breakfast. Our worship service will be at the regular time of 10:00. Honor you father, and your Heavenly Father, by being in church on Father’s Day! We look forward to seeing you at New Hope Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
The next regular meeting of the New Hope Men’s Ministry is Saturday, July 7, 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, July 1 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!!
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.
