What Should You Expect at a New Hope Service?
We are a multigenerational, multicultural church. We hear people consistently say that New Hope is a friendly, welcoming environment. When you come to New Hope, you will be greeted by people who genuinely love God and care about people.
You will find people dressed in a wide variety of styles. Come dressed the way you feel comfortable. At New Hope, our focus is a person’s heart, not their outward appearance.
Our music is a blend of contemporary worship choruses with traditional and modern hymns using a variety of instruments. We encourage everyone to participate in worship to God. This can include clapping and raising hands, or quietly reflecting on the lyrics.
Sunday services open with a few corporate songs of worship and praise to God followed by a short greeting time, announcements, and the receiving of tithes and offerings. Then, one of our pastors gives a sermon, concluding with a time of response through prayer and worship.
Everyone is warmly greeted when you walk in the door! We encourage all guests to stop by the Welcome Center before you leave; we have a gift for you. We’d also love to connect with you. Fill out a Connect card before you leave, our pastors would love to get to know you!
Visitors are not expected to partake in the offering. The offering is for those who call New Hope their church home. When we receive communion, it is an open communion, meaning anyone who has accepted Christ as their Lord may partake.
Every Sunday, you can expect to hear a Bible-based message with practical application for everyday living. All of our pastors speak from time to time and regularly rotate.
