Happy Hump Day New Hope! Dana and I had a wonderful time on our trip to New Orleans and Baton Rogue. We had lots of wonderful cajun and creole food, saw some of God’s beautiful creation and creatures. and spent some time with family at my nieces wedding. I spent a few days of the trip in the hotel with migraines, but overall we had a great time. Thanks to all those who stepped up and took care of things in our absence.

Come eat with us at 6:00 and stay for The Bible Study/Prayer Group, led by Pastor Paul at 6:30. Our study is “The Letters of the Apostle Paul”. Join us as we study and share a time of prayer for the church and each other. You will find this a mid-week recharge! This is an excellent opportunity for spiritual growth. I hope to see many of you Wednesday evenings. – Pastor Paul
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.
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.
