New Hope Sunday services run from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm each Sunday. For those who would like to join us in prayer, there is an open prayer meeting in the pastor’s office at 9:45 am, lasting about 15 minutes.
The service begins with worship followed by announcements, then a sermon. This usually wraps up about 11:15. Following this attendees are invited to stay for mid-sized groups, groups of 10 to 20 people where we discuss the practical elements of the sermon and pray for one another. The groups wrap up at 12:00.
Children are dismissed after the announcements for Sunday school. They gather together to do kids’ worship for about 40 minutes, and then, while the adults are in mid-sized groups, they break up into age specific groups for a lesson and craft. Children can be picked up after the service at noon.
Dress at the church is casual. We take a come-as-you are approach. Some people come to church in shorts and a t-shirt while others come in a suit and tie. However you’d like to come dressed isn’t so important to us.
