Worship services are held every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Full children’s ministry staffed by screened volunteers is available for children from infants to 8th graders.
The musical component of worship at New Hope features a mix of both contemporary worship songs and traditional hymns. If you are interested in auditioning for the worship team please contact Mary Poling or Trent Cokley.
Typically, we devote a portion of our Sunday morning worship time to corporate prayer. The flavor of this time varies from week to week. Occasionally we’ll utilize a formal piece of liturgy such as the Book of Common Prayer. Other times we may pray through a Psalm or other scripture. Perhaps most frequently, we’ll have an open time of prayer requests from the congregation.
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.
