Reopening the Church further

1. For February 2021, we will reopen for small groups, classes, committees/ministry teams on Sunday only. (Why Sunday only? It's a limited approach, suggesting that we still recognize the need to be careful. It helps us eliminate exposure of NHBC members with Raleigh Dream Center and the YMCA through the week. It also allows us to trace any infection to a limited number of groups that have met across a single day).

2. For February, we want to re-emphasize that masks and appropriate distance are needed for small groups, classes, committees/ministry teams. We will continue to assign rooms to groups that allow for everyone to spread out.

Thank you for your continued efforts!

Both the Maranatha Class and the Jessie Morris Friendship Class will resume this Sunday, February 14 at 9 AM. Anyone is welcome to join!

Serving the YMCA Students

Wake County will not be providing lunches for students on Monday 2/15 and Tuesday 2/16, which includes the students with the YMCA that have been using our facility. We would like to give back to these students. If you are available to make bag lunch(es) please email Jennifer@NewHopeRaleigh.org by Friday at 2 pm and let her know how many bags you can make. Lunches can be dropped off this Sunday or brought to the office on Monday by 10 AM.

Bag lunch can include a sandwich, chips / crackers and a fruit. Feel free to write a note of encouragement and put in the bag. We need a total of 90 bags for the 2 days.
*We need 2 bags to be peanut free.

We could also use individually wrapped desserts (valentine themed) and Capri-Suns.

Thank you for serving our community!
