OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAChristmas Eve Candle-lighting Service  at  New Hope Community Church

Worship with us this Christmas Eve – Dec. 24th, 2014 -7:00 PM

Christmas music and carols, a special visit from the angel Gabriel, and the traditional candle-lighting ceremony at the end of the service. Invite your family and friends!


Church life has been very busy at New Hope Community Church!  In the past few months, we have said good-bye and “until we we meet again” to our beloved Pastor Dan & Lauren Eisnor and family, with a church-wide potluck and send-off.  This spring, God called Pastor Dan to ministry in Grand Haven, Michigan.  We have since been blessed with guest pastors and preaching elders in our pulpit each week.  God truly does provide and grow us even in times of vacancy!

We are getting ready for Vacation Bible School (more information can be found under the Education tab on the Youth and Children’s drop down boxes).

Several members of our church family give unselfishly to the beautification of our grounds by planting flowers and tending to the landscaping.  If you see George & Carol in church be sure to tell them “Thanks!”  The church will be getting a new roof soon which is a God-send following a very leaky winter season.  We praise Him for it!  There will soon be a new handicap accessible door installed at the north entrance door which will make getting to church much easier for our elderly and disabled.  Praise God!

We’d love to have you worship with us!  Our Sunday service is at 9:30 AM and there’s plenty of fellowship that happens in Fellowship Hall following the service.  Join us this summer!
