10:00 a.m. Sundays
The 10:00 a.m. Service is held in the 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.
Nursery care is available for Worship Service. We are able to care for infants and toddlers through age 3.
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.
9:00 a.m. Sundays
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.

to celebrate and understand more fully the entire mystery of Jesus Christ

Stations of the Cross – When, Where & Why
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
