A Community Prayer Mailbox is another new ministry at New Hope. Some folks in our neighborhood may not have a church home, but are in need of prayer. A white mailbox has been placed in the church parking lot in which anyone in the community can drive up or walk up and leave prayer requests. These will be removed by the pastor and prayed for on Wednesday evenings and on Sunday mornings. There are paper and pens, as well as information about the church in a container under the mailbox. Tell your neighbors!

The new member mailboxes are now in the Welcome Foyer! Many thanks to Ray and Gina Jones for crafting this lovely piece of furniture, that is functional and adds to the beauty of our Welcome Room.
The cold days of fall and winter will soon be here and with them come New Hope’s Compassionate Hands Homeless ministry. For 2017/2018, the CPW is doing a “Warmth for Winter” program that will help us to begin collecting items that the men we host in the Compassionate Hands ministry will need.
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.
Good evening New Hope! Alexandria and Colleen had an amazing experience on the last ministry trip to Haiti. Here is a message from Alexandria. I am so excited to be able to share Colleen and I’s experience with you! There are never words to describe the impact that the people of Haiti, the CP ministers, and the mission team have on my faith and personal growth. Each time I have visited Haiti, I feel an immediate spiritual, physical, emotional, and mental renewal. I’ll be sharing in more detail during a special service coming up but I wanted to give you a brief overview of what we were able to accomplish in our time there.
