He Is RISEN! Sunday, April 21, 2019 – Easter Day Scripture – Luke 24:1-12 Message – “Dead or Alive?” What Sunday is to the rest of the week, Easter is to the Christian Year. Easter is the day when God shatters the power of death by raising Jesus Christ from the grave. God destroys death, our ultimate enemy, and takes away its power over us. Without the resurrection Jesus would have been a good man, perhaps even a prophet or a martyr, but He would not have been the Messiah, God’s Chosen One. The resurrection displays the power and glory of God in Christ. He Is Risen! He Is Risen Indeed! 8:30 a.m. – Covered dish breakfast in the Fellowship Hall 9:30 a.m. – Time for Greeting Neighbors, Friends, and Visitors 10:00 a.m. – Community Easter “Son Rise” Service We look forward to seeing you this Sunday at New...
Attention Ladies!! The Spring meeting of the Murfreesboro Region CPWM will be Saturday, April 27 at the Liberty Cumberland Presbyterian Church in McMinnville. This is the semi-annual meeting of the women’s ministry groups from all of the churches in the Murfreesboro Presbytery. (Unlike the presbytery meetings, we ladies have a little fun and a lot of fellowship!) We’ll receive updates about mission projects involving the Murfreesboro Region CPWM, have a guest speaker, and maybe a skit or two and some special music. We will also observe Holy Communion. The meeting will begin at 9:00 but plan to arrive a little early for registration and some breakfast goodies. Lunch will be provided ($5) by the church. The meeting will end shortly after lunch. This is a great opportunity to make new friends and renew old friendships. If you would like to carpool, please contact Anita Drew (615-756-5997).

Good Evening New Hope! Today is Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras. There may be no better example of the excesses of our culture than what takes place in many places today. New Orleans draws most of the attention with the raucous activity of Bourbon Street. But there will be celebrations of excess attached to Mardi Gras throughout the world.
Sunday, April 6 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!!
