respond

We want to connect with you! If you are a guest and want more information about New Hope, made a decision to trust in Jesus, want to know more about baptism or have a prayer request, let us know. 

Fill out the form below and we’ll get in touch with you shortly.

give

The Bible has more to say about giving than it does heaven, hell, prayer – even faith! Why is giving a recurrent theme in the Bible? Because God wants us to understand – and enjoy – the blessings that come to those who give with a cheerful heart. God invites us to worship Him in all areas of our lives, including the way we spend our money.

You can give online via check, debit or charge card. You can also set up recurring monthly payments. If you have any questions or issues with your online giving please contact our finance department at 770.461.4337 x 880.

 

reunion plan

We are so thankful to be able to worship together again. We thank you in advance for pre-registering for your service time so that we can abide by the safety guidelines administered by our leaders.

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

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

• Northgate Campus will gather for worship at 10:55 AM at the South Campus until August 16 when they will resume meeting at Northgate High School.

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

Onsite Family Groups will resume at all campuses on August 16!

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?

Worship care for children begins on Sunday, August 2 at our South Campus and Sunday, August 16 at our North Campus.

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?

Starting June 14, we’ll be 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 this summer.

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 strongly recommend wearing a mask.

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 below. 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

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!

New Hope is proud to be joining several churches in our community to pray for those at Fayette Piedmont Hospital working on the medical front. Hospital administration, doctors, nurses, technicians and staff are sacrificing and serving our community at an unprecedented level, and we want to support them in prayer.

As a church, New Hope is taking Wednesdays between the hours of 9:00 AM – 8:00 PM to drive through the campus and pray.

For more information about how you can get involved, please contact Marion Ferencz: marionf@newhopebc.org

As a result of social distancing, we have a unique opportunity to build connections with the people that live near us that will make a big difference in their lives and in ours.  Below are some tips to help:

1. Reach out to your neighbors via email or phone.
2. When you see your neighbors, make it a point to talk to them.
3. Ask your neighbors how are they doing in this crisis and how you can pray for them.
4. Run an errand for older or at risk neighbors.
