Wednesday Night Bible Study

For the months of January and February, our Wednesday night focus will be a series on Apologetics. The Bible encourages us to defend our faith: “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,” (1 Pet. 3:15). That’s the point of apologetics—to explain our hope in Christ to others. The series is framed from the perspective of mission trip preparation.

Jan. 20 - Truth - What is it?
Jan. 27 - Faith in Culture
Feb. 3 - Resurrection
Feb. 10 - Testimony
Feb. 17 - Unbending Truth
Feb. 24 - So What? Where Now?
Sunday Recreation

Recreation online is not the same as kickball or 9-Square outside, but still creates laughs and smiles. Join in on Sunday's at 5:00 pm for some fun. Here are the tentative plans for the next few weeks. The link will be sent later this week.

Law Enforcement Donations

With the anticipation of upcoming protest in our city, New Hope would like to continue to show support to our local law enforcement officers. Most of all we need to remember them in prayer. Pray for their health and safety over the next few weeks and their families. As we don't know fully what to expect, keep our city in your prayers as well as our leaders and law enforcement.

We would also like to collect individually wrapped snack items along with bottled water and small bottles of Gatorade. 

Ways to support: You are welcome to drop items by the church office Monday-Friday, 9 - 2 pm. Bring snack items to worship on Sunday and place it in the red wagon located in the Narthex. You can also use the button below to give financially. 
Raleigh Dream Center donations

Raleigh Dream Center is in need of canned meats and canned fruit. You can bring your donations to service on Sundays and leave in the red wagon or feel free to drop them by the office between 9 am and 2 pm.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support for our community and law enforcement officers. 

Grocery Distribution

New Hope is continuing to partner with Raleigh Dream Center to distribute free groceries at Lexington on the Green apartments. Volunteers are needed each Wednesday from 11:45 - 1:00 PM.
