This Sunday, September 16, we will begin a new sermon series with an accompanying 21-day devotional guide and a song for each chapter in the gospel of John: **The Book of John** in Song. Each week a new song based on a particular chapter in John will be shared by our music ministry team. This week we'll feature "Living Water" that Jesus spoke of in John 7:37-39: "On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, 'Anyone who is thirsty may come to me!...

One Book for the Life of God

9/9/2018
More
This Sunday, September 9, will be the conclusion of the sermon series based on the book, Scripture and the Life of God, by David Watson. We will be discussing the way God's Word is truly "One Book for the Life of God." We believe in the authority of Scripture. It is inspired (breathed) by God. The Bible isn't a book among books; rather it is the Book. Every word in God's Word points us to Jesus, even the words we struggle with, don't yet understand or don't agree with...yet. Here are the...

Expectation and the Life of God

9/2/2018
More
This Sunday, Sept. 2, will be week 4 of the sermon series based on the book, Scripture and the Life of God, by David Watson. We will be discussing expectation and the life of God. In general, the American church has very low expectations for God. For the most part, we tend to not expect miracles or anything bordering on the supernatural. The reality is that God gives all kinds of amazing gifts to his church (I Cor. 12:7-11) including wisdom, prophecy, faith, and healing. We should not...

Guides into the Life of God - Dan Palmer

8/26/2018
More
This Sunday, August 26, we'll continue our discussion on how a better understanding of Scripture leads us deeper into the life of God. We'll talk about how the lessons of Scripture are best absorbed with the help of a community of believers – both past and present – and why it's so vital for each of us to be intentional about walking with others on our journey of faith. Scripture verses to reflect on as you prepare for the message include Proverbs 3:5-6 and 27:17. Watch the Video and more...

Reading for the Life of God - Rev. Vicki Harrison

8/20/2018
More
This Sunday, we talk about Reading for the Life of God, based on Chapter 2 of David Watson's book, Scripture and the Life of God. Our scripture will be Hebrews 4:12, *"For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires."* The reality is that God's Word is alive and powerful because we serve a living God! One of the most powerful ways to have an...

A Path Into the Life of God

8/12/2018
More
This Sunday, August 12, we will start our new sermon series based on David Watson's book, *Scripture and the Life of God.* This week we will discuss how Scripture leads us deeper in the life of God, with specific emphasis on the Scripture's purpose, its divine and unique inspiration, and how it speaks into our lives in the here and now through the power of the Holy Spirit. Scripture verses to reflect on as you prepare for the message include Romans 7:15-19 and 2 Timothy 3:16-17. Watch the...

Unsung Heroes: Jehoshaphat

8/5/2018
More
This Sunday, August 5, we will finish our sermon series on “Unsung Heroes of God’s Word.” The Bible is filled with people called by God to use their gifts to serve Him and make a profound difference for God’s people, but not all of them are names we hear about all that much. We’ve looked at Bezalel and Oholiab, Priscilla and Aquila, and Shiphrah and Puah. This week’s message will be “Unsung Hero: Jehoshaphat,” who faced an overwhelming crisis as a king and he immediately turned to God...

This Sunday, July 29, we will continue our sermon series on "Unsung Heroes of God's Word." The Bible is filled with people called by God to use their gifts to serve Him and make a profound difference for God's people, but not all of them are names we hear about all that much. We've looked at Bezalel and Oholiab and Priscilla and Aquila.

This Sunday, July 22, we will continue our sermon series on "Unsung Heroes of God's Word." The Bible is filled with people called by God to use their gifts to serve Him and make a profound difference for God's people, but not all of them are names we hear about all that much. Last week we looked at Bezalel and Oholiab, who were called, empowered, and equipped to lead the construction of the Tabernacle. This week's message will be "Unsung Heroes: Priscilla and Aquila," who helped Paul in...

Unsung Heroes: Bezalel and Oholiab

This Sunday, July 15, we will begin a new sermon series on "Unsung Heroes of God's Word." The Bible is filled with people called by God to use their gifts to serve Him and make a profound difference for God's people, but not all of them are names we hear about all that much. Over the next four weeks, we will look at people in the background of the Bible- people who never get much attention and very few headlines. Some you will never have heard of before at all. Bezalel and Oholiab, for...

After the Storm

7/8/2018
More
This Sunday, July 8, we will finish up our sermon series, "The Storm Before the Calm" based on Talbot Davis' book by the same name. This week's message, "After the Storm," is based on what happened right after the flood. The fact is there is more danger after success than after failure. Noah, one described as "blameless" and "righteous," did something that missed the mark of God's full intention for his life after the storm, which led to consequences for generations to come. We can't...

This Sunday, July 1, we will take a one week break from, “The Storm Before the Calm” based on Talbot Davis’ book by the same name, which we will finish up on July 8. Rev. Guy Weatherly will be preaching a message titled, “One Nation Under God,” based on Psalm 33:12 and 1 Peter 2:9–12 (to read these go to: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+33%3A12%3B+1+Peter+2%3A9–12&version=NLT) Watch the Video and more here: http://findnewhope.com/resources/sermons/ Or...

The Perfect Storm

6/24/2018
More
This Sunday, June 24, we will continue our sermon series, “The Storm Before the Calm” based on Talbot Davis’ book by the same name. This week’s message, “The Perfect Storm,” is based on Paul’s journey to Rome, which was marked by a terrible and long storm in Acts 17:13–44. We will see that today’s peace comes from tomorrow’s promise. There are times when storms in our lives last a relentlessly long time. Rather than letting ourselves get shipwrecked we have to consider what might need to...

This Sunday, June 17, we will continue our sermon series, “The Storm Before the Calm” based on Talbot Davis’ book by the same name. This week’s message, “Storm Shelters,” is based on Isaiah 25:1–8 (to read this text go to: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+25%3A1–8&version=NLT) We will see that today’s peace comes from tomorrow’s promise. Ultimately, the assurance of heaven is our shelter on earth. God promises to one day balance all accounts, wipe away all tears, and...

Storm Chasers

6/10/2018
More
This Sunday, June 10, we will continue our sermon series, “The Storm Before the Calm” based on Talbot Davis’ book by the same name. This week’s message, Storm Chasers, is based on Mark 4:35–41, in which the disciples find themselves in a boat taking on water in the midst of a terrible storm in the Sea of Galilee. Frantically bailing out water, they wake a sleeping Jesus, asking him, “Teacher, don’t you care that we are drowning?” Jesus then calms the storm with just a few words and...

This Sunday, June 3, we will start a new sermon series, “The Storm Before the Calm.” There is an accompanying book that goes with this 5-week series. Storms in our lives are inevitable. How will we make sense of life’s troubles? You are in one of three places: You just came through a storm. You are in the middle of a storm right now. You are headed toward a storm in the future. When you build your life on a solid foundation, you’ll be ready when life is unsteady. What you do in the calm...

New Hope Non-Negotiables

5/27/2018
More
This Sunday, May 27, is Trinity Sunday and we will finish up our 2 part sermon series on “The Big Picture.” Last week we talked about our vision of being a church that is rooted in God’s Word, renewed by God’s Spirit through worship and prayer, and reaching out with love into our community and world. This week we’ll look at our values that are so important they are “non-negotiable.” To be better prepared for worship read Matthew 22:37–40; Isaiah 30:21; John 16:13; Genesis 1:1–2; Acts 15:28;...

We celebrate the birthday of Jesus’ Church, Pentecost, which gives thanks for the coming of the Holy Spirit like a fire. Pastor Vicki talked about our “Why” last week helping determine our “What” in how we live the new life in Christ. Our mission at New Hope is to make more and better followers of Jesus Christ. We’ll look at our vision this Sunday of being rooted in God’s Word, renewed by God’s Spirit through worship and prayer, and reaching out with love into our community and world....

What's Our Why?

5/13/2018
More
At New Hope, we talk a lot about our mission, which is to make more and better followers of Jesus, and our strategy for doing this - REACH, CONNECT, GROW, and SEND. Those are our WHATs. But the critical question is really, WHY do we do this? WHY do we ramble on and on about it? I know some of you think this! But seriously, WHY does it matter? This Sunday, May 13, the message will be focusing on, “What’s our WHY?” When you know your WHY, your WHAT has more impact because you are walking in or...

Hold Onto Your Joy

5/6/2018

This Sunday, May 6, we will finish our sermon series on Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi called “Living Out Our Joy.” This week we’ll look at Philippians 4 (to read this chapter go to: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians+4&version=NLT) Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi is known for its emphasis on joy as a decision on how to approach life no matter what our circumstances. We seek this as a goal not because it comes naturally to any of us, but because we...
