What are services like?
The worship services (Sat. 6pm, Sun. 10am) usually last about an hour to an hour and 15 minutes and consist of contemporary music led by a praise team and worship band (keyboard, drums, guitars) as well as a Biblical message that relates to real life. We use a lot of multimedia as well as periodic dramas/skits that illustrate some aspect of applying God’s Word to our lives. We are not stuffy, but we are not overly emotional either. Some clap and lift their hands to God. Others are more quiet and reflective in their response to God. That is up to you.
What is the community like?
Many times, attending a church for the first time can be intimidating. Don’t worry. Everyone is welcome at New Hope. Perfect people are the only ones not allowed! We’re just regular people who realize that we need God and are trying to understand what it means to have a relationship with Him and how to fulfill His purpose for our lives. No religion just for religion’s sake. No empty ritual. We study the Bible together to find meaningful, practical, real-life answers that God has for us in His Word.
What if I'm not a Christian?
Every weekend, you will hear a relevant, straightforward message that is based on Scripture and is designed to be helpful in your daily life. We trust these messages will help you begin and develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and provide a strong biblical foundation for your life.
