Special Message From Pastor Frank:


Hi Everyone!


The Governor has come out with a new mandatory mask requirement for gatherings in public places.  Here is an excerpt of the order that would pertain to us:


 [Masks are required] In any room or an enclosed area where other people (except for members of the person’s own household or residence) are present when unable to physically distance.  


So, here's what we are going to do: as you come to church wear a mask. If you don't have one we have lots (they are on the information table and the side table to the right of the entry doors). Keep your mask on as you fellowship with one another before the service begins. As soon as we start the service or you take a seat we will be at an appropriate "social distance", so you can take your mask off if you wish and keep it off until the service is over. When you get up to leave, put your mask back on since we will not be at the appropriate social distance as we chat and leave. Once you are in the parking lot, you are on your own.


I know the effectiveness of the masks is not conclusive, but let's do our best to follow the guidelines as best as we can.

Things to keep in mind as you come:

  • If you think you have a fever, have a cough, trouble breathing, or don't feel well please refrain from coming as a precaution

  • Chairs need to be at least six feet apart (family members that live in the same house can sit together)

  • Please, no hugs or handshakes

  • There will be no coffee, snacks, or bulletins

  • Hand sanitizer will be available for use if you would like

  • Door knobs, bathroom faucets, toilet flushers, and other "touchable" things will be disinfected Sunday morning before you arrive

  • The offering will not be taken, but the baskets will be on the information table for you to drop in your envelope

There will be a sign with these points on the doors for you to reread before you come in.


I know this seems awfully strict and repetitious, but we are going by state and county guidelines. I want to make sure you are all as safe as possible when you come to church so you can concentrate on worshiping our wonderful God. We do what we can do humanly speaking, and then trust God to take care of us. Sure, there's a risk, but there's a risk going to the store or getting gas. 


Finally, could you reply to me via email in letting me know if you plan on coming on Sunday? In this way, I can set up enough chairs and spread them around in the best possible way. Thanks!


I look forward to seeing you in person!  If you have any questions or concerns please give me a call.  


Love Ya' All!


Pastor Frank  :-)

This Week's Sermon

At New Hope, you won't find empty ritualism or emotional hype.  We offer sincere, heartfelt worship and messages that are designed to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ and to practically apply the Bible's timeless truths to everyday life. 

We do a verse by verse studies of a book of the bible and presently are studying the book of Acts. Please listen to this most recent sermon below:

June 28th Message is from Acts 14:1-28  "The Sovereignty of God"

Due to technological difficulties, there is no message to post.

Main Scripture for June 28th:

"(in Iconium) there was a plot afoot among both Gentiles and Jews, together with their leaders, to mistreat them and stone them. But they found out about it and fled to the Lycaonian cities of Lystra and Derbe and to the surrounding country...(in Lystra) some Jews came from Antioch and Iconium and won the crowd over. They stoned Paul and dragged him outside the city, thinking he was dead."  Acts 14:5-6,19

*   *    *   *



June 21st Message is from Acts 13:12-52

The message is entitled “The Only Focus"
