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. 

Compassionate Hands Homeless Ministry

Compassionate Hands Homeless Ministry

Emergency Shelters in Wilson County, Tennessee December 1, 2016 – March 14, 2017 Compassionate Hands is a group of local Christians who have united to protect the lives of Wilson County’s homeless population by hosting emergency shelters in church buildings during the winter. New Hope is one of many Lebanon-area congregations that participate. The goal of Compassionate Hands is that nobody in Wilson County will be outside all night in the cold when the temperature is below freezing. Wilson County churches are working together to serve as emergency shelters for 15 weeks this winter. In a program modeled after Nashville’s “Room in the Inn”, each church will open their building and provide volunteers one night a week. New Hope will serve as a host site on Saturday nights. We will host homeless men and need male volunteers to stay overnight here at the church. If you would like to volunteer...
