      Stewardship Focus - Blessed to be a Blessing      Zechariah 8:13b

      Our Stewardship & Evangelism Committee and Church Council, in a proactive attempt to address the need of the congregation’s General Fund - which is foundational for our mission,  facilities and staff - is moving forward with a Stewardship focus.  Estimate of Giving Cards for General Fund giving in 2020 will be mailed to households soon. Please prayerfully reflect on your financial giving to our General Fund. Fill out the card with what you sense God is calling you to give this year. Enclose the card in the envelope addressed to you, and seal it, and bring it March 1. If you’ll be gone, mail it to the church office at P.O. Box 85, Sand Creek, 54765. These will not be opened, and will be returned to you late in the year. This is meant to encourage a spiritual conversation between you and God. Thank you!

      "...Now I will rescue you and make you both a symbol and a source of blessing! So don't be afraid or discouraged.... Zechariah 8:13b

    • February 23 - Transfiguration Sunday

      Today’s festival is a bridge between the Advent-Christmas-Epiphany cycle that comes to a close today and the Lent-Easter cycle that begins in several days. On a high mountain Jesus is revealed as God’s beloved Son, echoing the words at his baptism. This vision of glory sustains us as Jesus faces his impending death in Jerusalem. We turn this week to Ash Wednesday and our yearly baptismal journey from Lent to Easter. Some churches put aside the alleluia at the conclusion of today’s liturgy. This word of joy will be omitted during the penitential season of Lent and will be sung again at Easter. 

    • ash wednesday - February 26

      • Sand Creek site at 11a - followed by a soup & Bread Luncheon
      • pine creek site at 7p

       These forty days called Lent are like no other. It is our opportune time to return to the God who rescues; to receive the gifts of God’s grace; to believe with the heart and confess with the mouth the wonder of God’s love in Jesus; and to resist temptation at every turn. This is no small pilgrimage on which we have just embarked. It is a struggle Jesus knew. It is a struggle Jesus shares. The nearness of the Lord, in bread and wine, water and word, will uphold and sustain us.

    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.
