Someone who isn’t part of Jesus’ own circle is casting out demons in Jesus’ name, and the disciples want him stopped. They appeal to Jesus, as Joshua did to Moses about the elders who prophesied without official authorization. Like Moses, Jesus refuses to see this as a threat. Jesus welcomes good being done in his name, even when it is not under his control. The circle we form around Jesus’ word must be able to value good being done in ways we wouldn’t do it, by people we can’t keep tabs on. Our gospel ends with these words49“For everyone will be salted with fire. 50Salt is good; but if salt has lost its saltiness, how can you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.”

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!

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.  

Watch for Weather Related Updates

With winter arriving in our area, please look for updates on worship and other schedules. We’ll post on our website, our Facebook page, and start the prayer chains. When you see a change, please let others know if you’re aware they are not connected to these. Thanks for your help.
