Pastor Paul’s Ponderings
Good afternoon New Hope!
What a gorgeous spring day in middle Tennessee! I hope you found an opportunity to enjoy this day that the Lord has made.
Sunday is a big day at New Hope. We gather for Sunday School at 9:00 a.m. and worship at 10:00 a.m. One of the most important things for believers to do is gather together to worsihp God and to love and encourage one another. I pray that everyone who considers New Hope their home will be here so the entire family can worship together. After worship we will gather in Fellowship Hall to share a catered meal from Demos’. No need for you bring anything, lunch (including dessert and drinks) is being provided by the church. We just want you to make the commitment to be here. If you haven’t signed up you can do so by responding to this email or calling me at 615-429-4331. Extra food has been ordered so that if you forgot to sign up you can still join us and there will be plenty. We will be presenting some preliminary information from the surveys many of you have completed and turned in. We will also have a time for questions and suggestions, so even if you did not complete a survey you will have opportunity for input. If you would like to complete one of the survey’s they are still available. You can pick one up on Sunday. You do not have to be a member to complete a survey or to join us for lunch and the congregational meeting.
Also, if you volunteered for set-up for the meeting, we will begin at 9:00 a.m. Saturday (tomorrow) morning. If you didn’t sign up you can still come help out. It should take us less than two hours to do what needs to be done.
I am excited about the future of New Hope and am looking forward to seeing what God has in store for us. I pray that your love for this place called New Hope where you nurture your relationship with God through Jesus Christ will lead you to join us Sunday.
Grace and peace,
