Thought for the Week
uring World War II in the terrible days of the London Blitz, a father, holding his small son by the hand, ran from a building that had been struck by a bomb. In the front yard was a shell hole. Seeking shelter as quickly as possible, the father jumped into the hole and held up his arms for his son to follow. Terrified, yet hearing his father's voice telling him to jump, the boy replied, "I can't see you!" The father, looking up against the sky tinted red by the burning buildings, called to the silhouette of his son, "But I can see you - Jump!" The boy jumped, because he trusted his father. The Christian faith enables us to face life or meet death, not because we can see, but with the certainty that we are seen; not that we know all the answers, but that we are known. – Donner Atwood

Welcome to Worship
elcome to New Hope Church, a place for new beginnings! If you are visiting, you will discover a loving, spirit-filled church family. Here is some helpful information as you join us in worship today: All who worship here are equals in the sight of God, regardless of race, age, gender, physical disability or religious affiliation. Communion, when celebrated, is open to all who profess Christ as Lord and Savior, whether affiliated with this church or not. Children may partake of Communion as well, if parents approve. A nursery is available during the service; please see a greeter for directions. (This is for infants and children up to 3 years of age.) Handicap-accessible restrooms are located off the narthex (foyer) and adjacent to the entrance lobby in the Fellowship Hall/Gym. Please remember to sign the attendance folder at your pew so we will have a record of your visit with us today. Thank you for remembering to silence your cell phone during the service. No food or beverages in the sanctuary, please. If you arrived as a visitor we hope that you leave as a friend and worship with us often! New Hope Church exists to: Glorify God in worship and rejoice in our life together; Share the Good News of the Gospel in word and deed; Reach as many as we can with the saving love of Jesus; Help each person grow toward Christian maturity, and find their place of service in the church and in the world.



Ministries/Activities Within Our Church
SPECIAL THANKS from New Hope Church to those folks who have been keeping the church yard mowed this summer: Raymond Bay, Ray Jones, Jimmy Reynolds, Bill Brown, and Clayton Fisher. This is one of the dirtiest jobs at the church and it is done faithfully and well. Thank these individuals when you next speak to them! th 200 Anniversary Committee will have its next meeting this Wednesday evening, September 4 at 6:00 p.m. here at the church. Work Days at the Church will be September 8 and 15 to prepare for the Bicentennial Celebration. Anyone wishing to come out on Saturday, Sept. 8, we will start around 7:30 a.m. On the following Saturday we are requesting “all hands on deck” starting early and for most of the day as we prepare the church for the celebration the next day. Come both days if you are able! th 200 Anniversary Committee Notes – Sign-up sheets for the various activities that will be happening on Sept. 16 are in the Narthex. Current projects: Time Capsule: We are working on a time capsule. Each

Sunday School Class will be asked to come up with something to contribute. Also, anyone in the church is invited to bring something that pertains to the year 2012 to place in the time capsule, room permitting. Dinner on the Grounds: immediately following the worship service on September 16 (the anniversary celebration day) we will eat lunch outside. This will be RSVP (see sign-up slip below). There will be no charge for this meal, but we are asking that donations be made and will have a place for people to drop their cash or checks. This will be a full afternoon of activities with live music, folks in period costumes, livestock, contests such as lumberjack and pie baking and many other activities that would have been going on in 1812. New Hope Choir – Led by Ben, the New Hope choir is more than just a choir. It is a small group that meets on Sunday evenings to, yes, practice some songs, but also to fellowship, express concerns, reflect on a devotional together and pray for one another. Those in the choir are blessed to be in it together. Join the choir and find out why! They meet every Sunday evening at 6:00. Stephen Ministry is a program that selects and trains laypeople for Christian care giving. Stephen Ministers in our church are certified and trained to help people go through the many transitions and challenges in life. Our Stephen Ministers serve anyone in need, both within and outside the church. Call the church office if you are interested in receiving care through the Stephen Ministry program. Stephen Ministers are the Caregivers…God is the Curegiver!
