Pastor Paul’s Ponderings

Good Morning New Hope! Sunday, October 13th is our second annual Worship in the Park.  We have the main pavillion at Don Fox Park reserved for the day and will worship together there at 10 am.  Following our worship celebration we will enjoy a time of food and fellowship.

This Sunday at New Hope

Sunday, September 22, 2019 Scripture – Luke 15:1-7 Message – “One” Continuing our journey through Luke this month. In the Star Trek movie, The Wrath of Khan, Spock goes into the nuclear reactor that powers the ship to make a life-saving repair.  When the rest of the crew discover what he is doing they beg him to come out because they know he will die if he doesn’t.  Spock replies, “the good of the many outweighs the good of the few,” and Captain Kirk adds, “or the one.”  In today’s scripture we discover a parable of Jesus that calls this philosophical approach into question. – Pastor Paul We look forward to seeing you this Sunday at New Hope Church!

Men’s Ministry Prayer Breakfast

The next regular monthly meeting of the New Hope Men’s Ministry is scheduled for Saturday, September 7, at 8:00 in the church kitchen. This Saturday we will briefly examine a powerful little note from the brother of James to a church or churches. Many often overlook the little New Testament note that Jude wrote. That’s really all it is, a note. Believers tend to focus on the bigger books in the New Testament Library. We go to the Gospels and Acts for the rich history and powerful stories which contain our Christian roots. We look toward Paul’s letters for church doctrine, or John’s writing for Christian love.  Jude, in his counseling to those who are enduring difficult periods shares four things they ought to do on their journey if they are to persevere the times. Join us to perhaps take something beneficial away from Jude as men of God.

C.P.W. Meeting Reminder

Sunday, September 8 at 5:00 in the church office conference room. Dinner, devotional, planning time, and FUN. We would love to have ladies try this out that are not currently attending CPW meetings.  All ladies of the church are technically part of CPW, it’s just a matter of if you are active or not, so let’s get more of us interacting together at CPW. Small groups are THE heart of the church.  It’s a lot of fun and you get to learn about someone else and you may get to meet more people! We look forward to seeing you Sunday night!!
