An Echoing Impact
Incredible is too small a word to describe our Music Celebration services this past weekend. Not because of how fantastic everything was presented and expressed, but because of the deeper impact we've heard about from emails, conversations, social media comments, texts and more! We want to share just a few with you:
"That Christmas special was AMAZING! I know it was a ton of work and took a lot of time, but we not only sang Christmas songs - we worshiped! Thank you for taking us to the throne to worship our Lord and Savior... We loved it all..." -- D.L.
"I had a non-member approach me at school yesterday and commented that she was moved by the theology in the words of the songs. She said it was 'sweet.' Like taste and see how sweet." -- A.E.
"It was beautiful, well done, and above all worshipful and VERY powerful. I sensed the work of the Holy Spirit throughout the entirety of the morning. This included the magnificent and radiant children's choir." -- J.S.
"Sometimes I watch the New Hope Sunday service, it's such a good experience... The Christmas musical was very beautiful! Congratulations to everyone involved!" -- C.L. (Manuas, Brazil)
"It was great. Thank you for all the hard work that went into it. Brought tears of joy." -- C.B.
We saw so many first time guests, and were told by members that many of the people they invited came. A total of 1,748 people attended our services (362 Saturday night, 829 Sunday, 557 online), and each person walked away with truth, hope and impressions from the Holy Spirit on their heart.
We are so grateful to our Worship Pastor, Ryan Nelson, and to every person who was a part of this experience. Thank you for letting God use your gifts to reach the hearts of so many! We pray God will take all of these efforts, be glorified by them, and continue to turn hearts to Him.
