What To Expect

Friendly people

We hear people consistently say that New Hope is a friendly, welcoming environment. When you come to New Hope Assembly you will be greeted by people who genuinely love God and care about people. Jesus said in Mark 12:30-31 that the most important commandment is this, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” We are committed to helping people build lasting relationships with God and others. We think you will find New Hope to be an exciting, encouraging, and enjoyable environment to connect with people and worship God.

 

What should I wear?

When you attend one of our services, you will find people dressed in a wide variety of styles from jeans to suits and dresses. However, most people find themselves somewhere in the middle. Come the way that you feel comfortable. At New Hope, our focus is a person’s heart rather than their outward appearance.

 

No expectations

Each week there is an opportunity to worship God through giving tithes and offerings. If you are visiting and just checking out our church, you won’t be expected to participate in the offering. You’re our guest. The offering is for those who call New Hope their home.

 

Worship

Time is set aside in each service for communicating with God from our hearts. Our music is a great blend of contemporary worship choruses and traditional and modern hymns using a variety of instruments. Everyone worships in their own way. For some that means singing, clapping, or raising their hands. For others it is quietly reflecting on the words. At New Hope you’re welcome to do whatever comes from your heart in praise to God.

 

What about my children?

At New Hope children are a top priority. Our nursery is safe, clean, and staffed with very loving workers. We also have dynamic preschool and children’s ministries with separate age appropriate worship services for preschoolers, kindergarten-2nd grade, and 3rd-5th grades. Middle school and high school students are in the main service on Sundays, but Wednesday nights they meet for worship with their own age group. Each group has their own student-led worship band and time is given in the youth meeting for worship, building community, small group interaction, fun activities, and relevant teaching from the Bible.
