New Hope Life Center & Social Hall Construction Update
The work continues at the NHLC.  The wall studs for the the offices are pretty much completed.  New electrical wiring is being installed.  Some of the old floor coverings have been removed.  Furring strips have been nailed to the concrete block walls in preparation for the new wall surfaces.

This is such a blessing and ‘glory sighting’ for our church!  Come and see what God is doing at New Hope.  Thank Him for new ways He presents us to make more and better followers of Jesus Christ.  

This is a truly exciting time in the life of our church.  Let’s all thank God for His provisions and give Him all the glory!

Paul Lancaster
Site work for the new Social Hall has finally begun.  Unnecessary concrete sidewalks and the bricks that were located in a patio area near Logan Hall have been removed.  The retention pond is being enlarged and the dirt is being relocated to the building site for necessary fill.
Please contact me with any questions.

December Mission Emphasis

   Zoe is our newest international mission partner. 
   The work they do is incredible - it's all about empowering
    orphans so that never have to accept charity again.  New Hope will have an empowerment group in Zimbabwe over the next three years. Children in the group will be offered skills and resources to start their own businesses, educational guidance, and emotional and spiritual support. Do you think God might be calling you to go to Zimbabwe and meet the children in our empowerment group?  If so, contact Rev. Vicki.  Maybe you want to offer support in other ways.  We will have "alternative Christmas gifts" outside on the patio starting the first Sunday in December - all proceeds go to our specific empowerment group.

I invite you to join me on a 10-Day Journey through the Bible tourto the Holy Land that will expand your knowledge of the God’s Word in this sacred land. We’ll follow in the footsteps of Jesus, Paul, Samuel, and David, which will transform the way you read the Bible. For many people this is the trip of a lifetime. From Oct. 28, 2019 - Nov. 6, 2019 we will travel with Educational Opportunities. Please consider this my personal invitation to be a part of this adventure of faith. For more information on the trip, pick up a “Journey through the Holy Land” brochure in the kiosk of the Lobby. This trip would even make a great Christmas present, because you would get to see the birthplace of Jesus!
