Thanksgiving Service Wednesday, November 25 7p at our Sand Creek Site

  • You are Welcome!         In-Person or online

    Sunday, November 29 - Advent 1   



     Stir up your power, and come! The psalmist’s plea in Psalm 80:2 has become familiar to us in the Advent prayers. Isaiah wants God to rip the heavens open. Both cry out for an apparently distant, angry God to show up, to save, to restore. When we hear Jesus describing the coming of the Son of Man with stars falling from heaven, it can sound dire and horrible, not like anything we would ever hope for. But when we really look at the suffering of people God loves, we can share the hope that God would tear open the heavens and come.

    This Sunday, November 29 - Advent 1

    Isaiah 64:1-9; Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19; 1st Corinthians 1:3-9; Mark 13:24-37

      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.
