Unaffected by a Mad World | October 25

[19] My dear brothers and sisters, take
note of this: Everyone should be
quick to listen, slow to speak and
slow to become angry, [20] because
human anger does not produce the
righteousness that God desires. [21]
Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and
the evil that is so prevalent and
humbly accept the word planted in
you, which can save you.

James 1:19-21 (NIV)

takeaways

1. Be godly in our thoughts, speech and emotions.
2. Let the word be our rule of life.
3. Care for the most vulnerable.

“Because He Lives (Amen)” by Matt Maher

VERSE 1:
I believe in the Son
I believe in the Risen One

By the power of His blood

CHORUS:
Amen Amen
I’m alive I’m alive because He lives

Let my song join the one that never ends
Because He lives

VERSE 2:
I was dead in the grave
I was covered in sin and shame
I heard mercy call my name
He rolled the stone away

CHORUS:
Amen Amen
I’m alive I’m alive because He lives
Amen Amen
Let my song join the one that never ends

BRIDGE:
Because He lives I can face tomorrow
Because He lives ev’ry fear is gone
I know He holds my life my future in His hands

CHORUS 2:
Amen Amen
I’m alive I’m alive because He lives
Amen Amen
Let my song join the one that never ends
Amen Amen
I’m alive I’m alive because He lives

There is a truth older than the ages

There is a kingdom that forever reigns
There is freedom from the chains that bind us

Who walks on the waters
Who speaks to the sea
Who stands in the fire beside me
He roars like a lion
He bled as the Lamb
He carries my healing in His hands

There is a name I call in times of trouble
There is a song that comforts in the night
There is a voice that calms the storm that rages
He is Jesus Jesus

CHORUS:
Who walks on the waters
Who speaks to the sea
Who stands in the fire beside me
He roars like a lion
He bled as the Lamb
He carries my healing in His hands

There is power in Your name
You’re my Rock and my Redeemer
There is power in Your name
In Your name

You roar like a lion
You bled as the Lamb
You carried my healing in His hands

You stand in the fire beside me
You roar like a lion
You bled as the Lamb
You carried my healing in His hands
Jesus there is no one like You
Jesus there is no one like You

reunion plan

We are so thankful to be able to worship together again. Due to limited space to ensure we are abiding by the CDC guidelines, we are requiring you to pre-register your children for Worship Care & Family Groups. You can do that by clicking the links below:

WORSHIP CARE & FAMILY GROUP REGISTRATIONS

FAQ’s

What are the worship service times? How will we know which service to attend?

You are welcome to choose the campus worship service that works best for you.  In order to manage the number of attendees per service, we ask that you please register online (using one of the links below) to let us know you’re coming.

• We have two on-campus services at South Campus: 9:15 & 10:55 AM 

• We have one on-campus service at North Campus: 10:55 AM

• We have one on-campus service at Northgate High School: 9:15 AM

When will our Family Groups meet? Will I have to miss Family Group to attend worship?

Onsite Family Groups have resumed meeting!

We will still offer online family groups as well.  If you’re looking for an online family group, please click on the “Family Groups” tab below for more information.

 Family groups are encouraged to be flexible to ensure that those who are interested in attending on-campus worship services will be able to attend both family group and in-person worship. Please reach out to your family group leader to learn more about your group’s specific plans.

Will there be childcare for worship?

We are offering worship care for both our campuses.

What will the service be like?

The worship service may look and feel a bit different, but we will still gather to worship in song and listen to the word of God.  The worship service seating will be arranged in a way to promote social distancing between individuals not of the same household, and the number of attendees at each service will be limited.

Are there suggestions for off-campus in-person gatherings?

Since June 14, we’ve been experiencing worship together both on-line and in-person at both campuses. As we begin to meet in other areas of New Hope, here are some best practices for all in-person gatherings.

Some best practices for gathering in person.

  • Outside is better than inside
  • Keep from shaking hands or hugging
  • Practice physical distancing of 6 feet
  • Wear face coverings
  • Anyone with a preexisting health condition or being treated for a serious illness should not attend
  • If you have been tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days, you should not attend
  • Be sensitive about those who choose for any reason not to attend.

Please continue having zoom or virtual options available, allowing those folks that choose not to attend in person to still participate.

Best practices can help us stay healthy. We also want to be as caring for as many people as possible. Wearing a mask and practicing careful behaviors are ways to show God’s love and compassion for others. Let’s be sensitive to how others are dealing with this situation. Thank you for caring for others and sharing the love of Christ.

What precautions are being made?

We will practice social distancing.  This is defined as staying 6 feet away from other people. We are rearranging and coordinating seating so that it will be easy to provide distance from others during our worship service. Although tempting, we will need to help each other avoid hugging and handshakes.  In addition to social distancing in the worship service, we will provide lots of hand sanitizer, masks, and will eliminate handouts.

Will I need to wear a mask?

While we will be practicing social distancing, we ask that you wear a mask while moving around our campuses.

Will the restrooms be open?

Yes.

Will we still have an online service?

Yes. We will continue to produce our weekly Sunday worship event that you may view on Facebook, YouTube and at newhopebc.org/livestream.

How will bulletins, offerings and communion be handled?

Our bulletin will be available online at newhopebc.news.  You can also continue to give your tithes and offerings by clicking the “Give” tab. We will be sure to share updates about communion when they are available.

What can I do to Help?

We would love help with our First Impressions Team, even if it’s a short-term commitment.  If you’re interested in supporting the parking team, greeter team or next steps team, please contact First Impression Director Amber Stewart at ambers@newhopebc.org. We appreciate your desire to serve!

What’s Happening

Parent/Child Commitment is a special time in the service where we, as a church family, come together to celebrate a family’s commitment to raising their child to know and love the Lord. At New Hope, the commitment is two-fold:

1) Parents commit to modeling what it means to love God, to loving their children with the unconditional love of Christ and to praying for their child to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

2) The congregation commits to partnering with parents by praying for the child that’s being dedicated, by teaching their child at church and by modeling a Christ-like lifestyle.

We are thankful for these 6 children being dedicated to the Lord. Please join us by praying for them.

Join us as we worship outdoors for this special service at our North Campus on Sunday, October 25. The service starts at 10:55 AM and we’ll have socially distanced seating and a drive-in option.

We would love for you to join us for an hour of prayer at our North Campus on October 28 at 6:30 PM. This will be an impactful evening as we come before the Lord together in prayer and worship.

Beginning November 1, we are asking our New Hope members to bring Walmart and Target gifts cards in $25 or $50 increments to be placed in the offering buckets so that we can give to local families in need this Christmas.

You can also give online! When donating through the church’s online giving, simply designate your gift in the “other” category to DELIVER LOVE.

Our goal is to serve 125 families! Please consider participating this year to bless our community.

The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Empty boxes are available at all campuses. Please pick one up and return it anytime before November 23. National collection week is November 16-23.

You are invited to join New Hope! In this Discovery/Membership class you will learn New Hope’s Mission, Values, Experience and Beliefs. There is no obligation to join New Hope by attending the class. 

Virtual Class for all campuses is on November 12 at 7:00 PM.

LIFE Classes are a variety of Bible-study classes designed to equip you to continue to grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ and others. These classes are a part of our Path of Discipleship. 

Currently our meetings are online throughout the week.

Kids are bombarded with an onslaught of culture these days, and we are passionate about equipping parents to disciple their kids to be counter-cultural and Gospel-minded. You can find some of our recommended resources in the link below.

The challenges that are affecting our youth today are consistently growing, and we want to continue to provide resources to help. Please click the link below to find ways to help with managing technology.

family groups

At New Hope we…

Elevate prayer, worship, and the Word
Enable each person and family to grow.

We believe that this happens best when you are connected to a Family Group. Family groups are communities that study the word, pray, and fellowship together every Sunday morning. Our groups are temporarily meeting online during this time, and we would love the opportunity to get you connected today!
