Ministries/Activities Within Our Church

TONIGHT - Empty Bowls and Potluck Dinner. Empty Bowls is a ministry at New Hope that the Session approved for the August and October I Love My Church dinners. Coming together as a community to help feed hungry people is at the heart of what Empty Bowls is all about. Empty Bowls is a national effort, where we will participate on Sunday evening August 25 by making bowls, and then on Sunday evening October 6 we will paint them. The bowls are then given away along with a soup meal, or they may be purchased back by the maker for a $15 donation. Ben Spicer is in charge of this program and will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Next Sunday September 1 Holy Communion. Gene Dyke will be in town and will sing for us during the morning worship service. Dont miss seeing Gene! A Childrens Choir will begin assembling next Sunday morning, September 1 at 8:50 a.m. Ben Spicer welcomes and encourages all children to participate! A Cumberland Presbyterian Womens (CPW) Ministry is forming at New Hope. Elder Mary Thompson invites each woman who can be available to join

Thought for the Week

ernon McGee tells this story about a man who wanted to argue about the Sabbath. The man said, "I'll give you $100 if you will show me where the Sabbath day has been changed." McGee answered, "I don't think it has been changed. Saturday is Saturday, it is the seventh say of the week, and it is the Sabbath day. I realize our calendar has been adjusted, and can be off a few days, but we won't even consider that point. The seventh day is still Saturday, and it is still the Sabbath day." He got a gleam in his eye and said, "Then why don't you keep the Sabbath day if it hasn't been changed?" McGee answered, "the DAY hasn't changed, but I have been changed. I've been given a new nature now, I am joined to Christ; I am a part of the new creation. We celebrate the first day because that is the day He rose from the grave." That is what it means that the ordinances have been nailed to the cross, Colosians 2:14. - J. Vernon McGee.
