What if I have questions when I visit?

Every sunday, as you walk into the sanctuary you’ll be greeted by our very own Art Holtman, with a friendly smile, a hug or handshake and our weekly bulletins.

Inside of these, aside from lots of information – there is an insert where you can write down your prayer requests or write down your questions.
Put this insert into the offering plate when it passes by during the offering time. Pastor and our prayer team see every prayer and question. Be very sure, every prayer request you submit will be prayed for by us. We take this ministry of prayer quite seriously. If you have an immediate question on the day you visit, seek out Pastor and let him know what it is.

Do you take an offering?

Yes, we pass an offering to worship God with our “First-fruits,” our Tithes and Offerings. We want you to just come in, enjoy worshipping with us, connect.

What about communion?

We celebrate the Lord’s Supper together
the first Sunday of every month.

You do NOT have to be a member of the church or pass some type of quiz before partaking in the Bread and the Cup with us. We have open communion. Jesus welcomes you to come, that settles it. Just that you know in your own heart before the Lord that you are ready to partake and have faith in Jesus.
Children stay in the sanctuary till after communion, then they are dismissed to Children’s Church with Ms. Lori DeWitt.
If you feel your child is ready for the sacrament of Communion, we encourage you to let them partake in God’s Grace this way.

What about your style of worship?

Basically, our style of praising Jesus is contemporary, yet we also sing some of the Great Gospel hymns from time to time. “All of God’s music” is our motto. Sometimes we use drama as part of worship. We have also been working very hard building up our Worship Team, who lead us in song every Sunday. If you play electric guitar, drums, or sing, and are looking to have a ministry, come on in!

What should I expect when I arrive?

Our dress is casual at New Hope, our coffee is hot, and all our snacks and treats are fresh. Most people gather before worship in our narthex to greet and fellowship. Please, just come as you are, relax, enjoy.

Shirley & Ab

Miss Shirley Wood, pictured above with young member, Abbie – is typically the first person who will greet you when you walk inside. Shirley is a trooper and has dedicated herself to the ministry of door-welcoming, and hospitality for many decades at New Hope. So when you walk in, all you’ll have to say is, “Hi — you must be Shirley!”

How do I find New Hope Church?

We have our address and location avaliable HERE that will make it easy for you to find New Hope.
The sanctuary and buildings are off M-89 about 200 feet, with the Richland Elementary School on the east side of our property, and the high tension power lines, and cemetery to our west.
We do have two entrances. The road to the right of the elementary school playground is one way, and there is also a road to the right of our Church that will bring you straight back as well.
