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 everything needs to be put back in place.  The center will be closed tomorrow so that we may accomplish that.  If you can donate a few hours or maybe even all day, just show up at the center and your help will be tremedously appreciated.  We can help anytime between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (more…)
