Pastor Paul’s Ponderings

Pastor Paul’s Ponderings

Happy Thursday New Hope! As followers of Jesus we are called to “do ministry”.  Our commitment to the one who died for our sins is so much more than attending a worship service occassionally or even every week.  We are to feed the hungry, clothe those who need clothing, care for those who are sick, provide shelter to those who have no shelter, and in every way we can pass the love of God we have received on to as many as we can in as many ways as we can.  Here are a few ways that you can be a part of passing on God’s love. The Wilson County Community Help Center is in need of volunteers all day tomorrow to help reset their food pantry.  On very short notice the pantry had to be cleared out so that the floor could be redone.  That process is complete and...

Haiti Ministry Update

Haiti Ministry Update

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.

From Pastor Paul: We have an opportunity to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey by providing needed supplies.  Pastor Pat Driskell of Rogersville Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Rogersville, AL is leaving with a group this Sunday (September 3) to go to the Houston area to assist the Cumberland Presbyterian Churches and others in that area. 

CPW Kroger Rewards!

CPW Kroger Rewards!

The CPW just got our 2nd quarterly check for the Kroger Community Rewards Program for $94.20. We had 9 people with Kroger Cards participating, and 4 of those are friends of someone at our church – they don’t even go to our church!!  That is great!!  We need to increase the count of 5 of our own people that are signed up though. This is FREE money.

Inclement Weather Policy

Inclement Weather Policy

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 page on this website will advise you if the church is to be closed for services on Sunday mornings or other times. If the church is open, but weather conditions are unfavorable, the church van may not run its route.  This decision will be made by the driver and the decision may not be made in time to be posted to this page.  A rule of thumb is that if there are icy conditions or other extreme weather, then do not expect that the van will be running its route. Thank You, New Hope Church

Pastor Paul’s Ponderings

Good morning New Hope! Everywhere we look we seem to find conflict.  There is race conflict, there is political conflict, there is conflict with authority, there is conflict between religions, and there is even conflict between forces in our environment.
