Worship Service

At New Hope UMC we strive to offer meaningful and vibrant worship each week. We offer two worship services on Sunday mornings.

8:00 a.m. Sundays

The 8:00 a.m. worship celebration is held in the Church Fellowship Hall.

The 8:00 a.m. service is usually Lay Lead. There is hymn singing, a time of joy, concerns, prayers, Scripture, and a message by the speaker of the day. The sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month.

10:00 a.m. Sundays

The 10:00 a.m. Service is held in the Church Sanctuary and is a traditional service of worship, incorporating hymn singing, prayer, Scripture and a sermon, as well as music provided by our choir.

The sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. The sacrament of Christian baptism, especially for infants, is observed virtually every week. Dynamic preaching by the pastor and stirring music by the choir make this hour the central part of our worship as a congregation.

Children’s Time

Childrens Church

Children’s Time is held every Sunday at 10:15 a.m. Children’s Time helps the children to be a part of and not separate from the congregation. It help’s integrate them into the church service when they are older. Teachers rotate each Sunday and weave the sermon and Bible stories together during Children’s Time. This time together is not only instructional and interactive for the children but for the whole congregation.

Sunday School

9:00 a.m. Sundays

Sunday School

Sunday School classes at New Hope UMC are focused on the study of the Bible. As we learn more about the Bible we discover the scriptures tell us repeatedly to study God's Holy Word and use this knowledge to teach others about how the scriptures direct our paths. We encourage anyone who wants to learn more about the Bible to come and learn with us. Sunday School immediately follows Sunday Worship Service.

What Is The Liturgical Calendar?

Since the early centuries of the Church, congregations have followed what has been called a "liturgical calendar", known alternatively as the "Church Year". The Church has developed a way of reminding itself of the life of Christ and the Church's beginnings by following a pattern which repeats itself year after year. However, the purpose of the Liturgical Year Calendar is not to mark the passage of time, but to celebrate and understand more fully the entire mystery of Jesus Christ.      Read More >>>

Stations of the Cross – When, Where & Why

Stations of the Cross

From the earliest of days, followers of Jesus told the story of his passion, death and resurrection. Pilgrims to Jerusalem were anxious to see the sites where Jesus was. These sites become important personal connections with Jesus. After many years and people moving around, it was no longer easy or even possible to visit the holy sites. By the 1500‘s, people all over the world started creating “replicas” of the places along the route in Jerusalem. Eventually, these shrines became the 14 stations      Read More >>>
