It is our belief that the preaching of the Word of God is a vital component of Christian worship. New Hope preaching is exegetical in nature, meaning that each sermon will be tied to a specific biblical text. Preaching series will vary in content from expositional studies of individual books in the bible, to topical series that will jump around the biblical narrative from week to week.
It’s strongly encouraged that congregants spend time in the passage for the coming Sunday in their devotional time during the preceding week.
There is no getting around it, stories matter to us. Sometimes a good story can help to guide us in the right direction and look at things from a different perspective. Charles Dicken’s story A Christmas Carol has been a classic for 175 years. Each week of this series, we’ll have a look at a different part of the story, all building up to the truth that Jesus’ arrival brings peace to our past, joy to our present, and a way of love for our future.
