Our Services

What to Expect

What are services like?
Gathered worship winds through songs & scripture, naming gospel and God in our lives, hearing from the scripture, opportunities for witness and service, and community. Expect to be led into worship on Sunday evenings with scripture, psalms, poetry, litanies and sharing scripture and pieces of our lives. Guitars, mandolin, djembe and percussion are lent to vocalists to lead us in singing back to God. Children 8 and younger leave for "Sophia's Playground' children's ministry and remain there until 7pm. After teaching drawn from scripture, we break into smaller groups to respond to gathered worship, the scripture and the teaching and to strengthen one another with prayer. The first Sunday of each month is dedicated to worship. There is rarely a teaching. Instead, the time is dedicated to singing, prayer and scripture that leads into sharing the broken bread and poured cup of Christ and the communion of a pot luck meal.

What is the community like?
Single and married, temping, blue collar, skilled and professional; tatooed, pierced -- or not; in recovery, tea totalers and temperant; new to following Jesus and seasoned disciples -- we are all invited to the common table of Jesus. Currently, New Hope is peopled by children, singles & married, twenty-&-thirty-somethings (& forty & fifty-somethings and a bit older).

What if I'm not a Christian?
Stick around. Listen. Weigh in. See what happens.
