"Highlights From Our Civil Rights Tour of the Deep South” with Deb and Gus Avenido

Join us Sunday, June 23 at 9a (during Coffee Fellowship) at our Sand Creek site.

Deb and Gus will give a talk and powerpoint presentation to share some of their experiences, highlights and take-aways from their civil rights trip to parts of Alabama, Mississippi and Memphis, Tennessee in October of 2018. They not only visited museums and significant sites of the Civil Rights movement but also met "foot soldiers" of the movement, including a woman who as a young girl lived next to Martin Luther King, Jr.
Bring your questions and open hearts in hearing how some of the most difficult parts of our country's history inform the present with our faith responses.

  • Holy Trinity Sunday - June 16 / and Father's Day

    “O Lord our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” Today we celebrate the name of God: holy blessed Trinity. There is no other day quite like this one in the church’s year. There is no other god like ours. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! 

    Rev. David Sands is our Guest Pastor

  • Pentecost 2 - June 23 - jesus heals

    This Sunday’s texts paint startling pictures of the horrific—the demonic —nature of sin. The church’s repeated celebration of the holy communion counters that tragic reality in a continued showing forth of the death of Jesus “until he comes.” It is a dramatic declaration of “how much God has done for you.” 

    Rev. Dale Moe is our Guest Pastor

  • Pentecost 3 - June 30  

    Jesus asks: Do you love me?

    The disciples make a big splash and breakfast with the risen Jesus in the gospel. Wading in the water (remembering our baptism) and eating with Jesus (celebrating the holy communion) is our weekly encounter with the risen Christ. Jesus asks us, with Peter, again and again: Do you love me? And Jesus invites us, again and again, to follow him, bringing the Easter life to others.

    Rev. David Sands is our Guest Pastor

    Our next Worship Together Sunday will be July 21  at 10a only (No 8:30a July 21) at Memorial Park in Sand Creek, prior to the Annual Firemen's BBQ Chicken Dinner in Riverside Park. Plan to enjoy this summer feast!

Sundays at New Hope

Church can be an intimidating place to come the first time — especially if you don’t know what to expect. We hope you'll come! You are welcome to participate fully, or as you wish. Be inspired by the music. Hear the Word. Get in touch with the spiritual. Come to the Table of Mercy. All are welcome at the Lord's Supper! We invite you to experience what the gospel - the good news of Jesus Christ - means at one of our services. You can engage with others and find places for your whole family to connect. Enjoy refreshments! We hope that through visiting with us, you will experience the hope, love, and joy that comes from a community of people who strive to walk in the footsteps of Jesus. You are welcome here!

  • Pentecost 4 - July 7 - Jesus sends out the seventy

     God is the source of our nourishment. Our Lord’s invitation to “take and eat . . . take and drink” is a repeated one. In the holy eucharist, in the word read and proclaimed, in the assembly of the people of God, the dominion of God has come near. Rejoice! Your name is written in heaven.

    Rev. David Sands is our Guest Pastor

Authentic Worship

At New Hope, worship in the name and power of the Holy Trinity is central to everything. As we come we declare that there is a deeper side of life sometimes ignored by our culture. We make time to step away from the hectic pace of life to worship, recognizing God’s greater goodness and our need to come faithfully into the presence of God. Here, we respond with our acts of worship to this amazing grace.

Teaching from the Bible

We believe that practical, relevant teaching is the catalyst for transformation in an individual's life. Scripture is inspired by God the Father, and as we reflect on God's word through the prism of Jesus Christ, we are transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit into God's likeness. It is a lifelong journey, and ultimately we rest in God's grace.
