The new church year begins with a wake-up call. Christ is coming soon! Advent - the four Sundays leading to Christmas are meant as a time of waiting, and preparation. Let's prepare together. See you this Sunday!

    December 16 we celebrate the season with Children's Christmas Pageants at both sites - Pine Creek at 8:30a and Sand Creek at 10a. Come and support the kids!

Breakfast and fellowship follows the 8:30a worship, served by WomenELCA. Proceeds to to the Pine Creek Cemetery Association. Bring some Christmas baking to share!

Coffee fellowship is prior to the 10a worship as usual, and will be extended following worship as well, so stop back in Fellowship Hall. Bring some Christmas baking to share.

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!


Let's Gather Together in Praise, and Leave as One to Serve!

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.
