“Show Up” September


The month of September is an extra special period for all those who call New Hope home to invite guests to Sunday services. Each of the five Sundays in September will have a different theme focusing on the various relationships we have with others in our lives. Better yet, there are prizes! Five first-time guests in the 8AM or 10:30AM services will be selected to win a $50 gift certificate to a local restaurant* each Sunday during the month.**

Guests will be eligible to win after filling out a visitor card.

The themes for each week are:

SEPT 2 – Colors
Show up to service with a fellow sports fan while wearing your favorite team colors. All teams and sports accepted. Stay during the regular Sunday school hour at 9:15 for free donuts and coffee, and come after the 10:30AM service for a tailgate party where we will be serving grilled hotdogs.

SEPT 9 – Family
Show up with your whole family, especially if you have family members who don’t attend a church regularly or at all. This Sunday is also National Grandparents Day, so be sure to invite them if you can. The New Hope photo booth will be open so you can grab photos and selfies with your family!

SEPT 16 – Friends
Show up with your friends from outside New Hope so they can meet your friends here! 

SEPT 23 – Neighbors
Show up with your neighbors who may not have a home church yet.

SEPT 30 – Colleagues
Show up with your coworkers so they can see what makes New Hope such an amazing community.

Don’t forget, first-time guests have a chance to win a prize just because you brought them. So get ready, reach out, and SHOW UP!
