Our Ministries

Serving Each Other

We we believe that ministry defines the essence of who we are. That’s why we place a heavy emphasis on our ministires. We believe that we exist not for ourselves, but as an extension of God; we are now the physical presence of Jesus Christ in the world. 

We define ourselves faithful service to the needs of humanity.  Educating, equipping, and empowering are the three ministry imperatives that drive all of our activity. It is our prayer that every member of New Hope is a working member.

The Usher and Hospitality ministries Greet worshippers, making every attempt to help them feel welcome and at ease. Escort members and guests to their seats. Distribute materials related to the service/meeting such as bulletins, hymnals, handouts, etc. Receive church offerings. Maintain an alertness for any emergency that may arise, relieving the need or contacting the person(s) needed to provide the proper assistance.

Make a joyful noise onto the Lord all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before His presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord He is God it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good: His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endureth to all generation. ~ Psalm 100
