Just as Jesus did, we welcome children to the ministries of New Hope United Methodist Church. At New Hope, children are an active,
vital part of our church community. For information about becoming a volunteer contact the Children's Ministry Director
Children of all ages are welcome at the 10:00 a.m. worship service. The Children’s Sermon is a highlight of
every worship experience as the Pastor creatively engages our imaginations and our hearts by inviting all children forward to learn
with the Children’s Time teacher.

The ministry of men in New Hope UMC is a core group of men, partnering with the pastor, to invite and initiate
spiritual growth opportunities for all men of the church. The focus is not inward, concentrating only on those who
attend a set meeting, but outward to all men, assisting them to engage the process of spiritual growth.
The congregation reaches out in dozens of ways to its neighbors in New Hope, the Carolinas and all over the world. We seek to be the
hands and feet of God in so many ways. There is a place for all to serve.
The Music Ministry at New Hope United Methodist Church wishes to provide all ages with an opportunity for service through God's
gift of music.

Prayer Shawl Ministry
The Prayer Shawl Ministry makes hand made shawls for battered women at the local shelters, cancer patients in hospitals, and for people facing tough
times. The shawls are also given away for milestones and joyful times.
Prayer Warrior Ministry
The Prayer Warrior volunteers meet in the sanctuary, once a week, to offer intercessory prayer (a prayer to God on behalf of
others) for the weekly requests. This team also sets the prayer vision for New Hope UMC by encouraging personal and corporate prayer (the
scheduled or unscheduled gathering of two or more Christians where those Christians approach God, communicating requests to God,
expressing praise and worship of God, confessing sin, or thanking God).
The Prayer Warriors maintain strict confidentiality to those prayer concerns that are offered in private.
Read The Bible In A Year
The church has launched Read The Bible In a Year, a journey in which participants read through the Bible in one year. This can be done
in small groups or on your own. Take some time each day to read, pray and open your heart to God's movement through the pages of Scripture.
The Women's Ministries are a living, growing, vibrant part of our church providing opportunities for fellowship, study and service to women of all ages.
