To love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind is to reflect God’s mercy in responding to one’s neighbor. That mercy found its most profound expression in the “gospel that has come to you”—namely the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. That gospel mercy comes to us again today: at the font, at the table, and from the pulpit. It is very near to you.

ONE SERVICE

Worship in the Park/Sand Creek 10a

Sunday, July 17

6th Sunday after Pentecost

Guest Speaker: Mark Gilberts

No Communion

One Worship Service on Mark Gilberts' lawn. His home is next to the bridge - on the east side of the Red Cedar River bridge. 


Perhaps the church, at its best, is “all ears.” God urges the faithful, again and again, to “listen up!”—to heed the word that gives life. So it was with Abraham and Sarah, Mary and Martha, and the early church at Colossae. So it is today as we join the assembly to hear the word of God, the word of life.

7th Sunday after Pentecost

Guest Speaker: John Loy

Pine Creek Site 8:30a

Coffee Hour at both 9:20a

Sand Creek Site 10a


Persistence in prayer is encouraged by Jesus and wins the attention of God when Abraham intercedes for Sodom. The life of the baptized—to be rooted and built up in Christ Jesus—is to be nurtured with prayer. God hears and answers prayer and so strengthens God’s own. “When I called, you answered me; you increased my strength within me.”

Guest: Rev. Gary Hedding

Coffee Hour at both 9:20a

Sand Creek Site 10a


Today’s texts offer instruction and encouragement for all who are occasionally overwhelmed by the “unhappy business” of life. Jesus urges us to take care and be on guard against all kinds of greed. We who have died with Christ in holy baptism have also been raised with him and are encouraged to elevate our thinking, seeking the “things that are above.” To that end we seek the sustenance of the Lord’s supper and the encouragement of God’s word

Pentecost 9 - Have No Fear Little Flock

Pastor Michael Sparby

Pine Creek Site 8:30a

Coffee Hour at both 9:20a

Sand Creek Site 10a


Jesus says, “It is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” It is God’s promise from the beginning—to Abraham, to the early church, and to the “little flock” of which we are a part in today’s assembly. Faith, God’s baptismal gift, trusts the promises of God. Have no fear.

Serving Through our Pine Creek Site

We celebrate with all who work tirelessly throughout the year to bring substantive hope to many through quilts, school kits, baby care kits, and personal care kits, and more. Thanks for all you do!

Quilt Sunday at our Sand Creek Site - October 3 at 10a

We celebrate with our New Hope Comforters this Sunday. Over 1,000 Quilts are designed and created by loving hands throughout each year. They bring God's love, warmth, and beauty into the lives of many near and far. A recent shipment went to help refugees at Wisconsin's Fort McCoy located between Sparta and Tomah. Some will be given to veterans soon. Many are given locally, and many sent through Lutheran World Relief to villages in the far corners of the globe. We give thanks for the long hours and faithful care that is given.

Worship

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.
