Unexpected: Wicked Good

This morning, we’re continuing our series entitled, “Unexpected” where we are going to recall the truly unexpected ways in which God worked in the past and some of the unexpected places and times where He showed up.  These reminders of God’s faithfulness and miraculous power and authority will serve to encourage us in our present and give us hope toward our future. One of the unexpected ways in which God works is a commonly asked question about Him.  Through the…

Unexpected: King

This morning, we’re continuing our series entitled, “Unexpected” where we are going to recall the truly unexpected ways in which God worked in the past and some of the unexpected places and times where He showed up.  These reminders of God’s faithfulness and miraculous power and authority will serve to encourage us in our present and give us hope toward our future.

Unexpected

This morning, we’re starting a new message series entitled, “Unexpected” where we are going to recall the truly unexpected ways in which God worked in the past and some of the unexpected places and times where He showed up.  These reminders of God’s faithfulness and miraculous power and authority will serve to encourage us in our present and give us hope toward our future. God almost always begins working with His word.  It’s sort of like us guys created in…

Steadfast

We are truly creatures of habit.  We were intentionally created by God to live life in rhythms.  However, why is it that it is so hard to develop good and healthy habits, but so easy to develop bad ones?  Not only is it easy to develop bad habits, but they are incredibly challenging to break!  Consider some of our almost humorous expectations in all of this, too! We eat unhealthily for years, then we decide that it’s time to get…

Fire of God

Memorial Day While most will be enjoying a day off of work tomorrow gathering with friends and family for cookouts, we want to take time to remember the true reason for this holiday.  At this time, we’re going to take a moment of silence to remember those who gave their all for our great nation followed by a time of prayer for those they left behind. Of course, we’re incredibly thankful for the civil freedoms that those who gave all…

Pentecost Sunday

Last week, we were challenged to participate in The Great Commission as we pray, give, and go. This morning, we’re going to celebrate the incredible gift and fulfilled promise of Jesus that makes it possible for us to fulfill The Great Comission: Pentecost Sunday!  Even as the angel declared to Mary about her upcoming pregnancy with Jesus: Luke 1:37 For no word from God will ever fail. God uses the events, feasts, and festivals in the Old Testament as a…

Forged in Fire

Happy Mother’s Day!!! Here at New Hope, we have been blessed with so many amazing mothers of all kinds; biological, adoptive, and spiritual!  Today, we honor you!  We acknowledge that the role of a mother doesn’t end at the age of 18; it’s a life-long commitment.  Our heart also goes out to you moms for whom this day is difficult for; those who have lost children or whose relationships with their children are broken.  We pray God’s comfort for those…

Seek: Secrets Revealed

This morning, we continue our new message series entitled, “Seek.”  Over and over and over and over again, we’re called in God’s word to seek Him.  We know that if God calls us to do something, it’s not something that we’re going to do naturally on our own. We were challenged so far to intentionally seek after God the way that He seeks after us.  Fervently, but patiently.  Urgently, but patiently.  Passionately, but patiently.  Like Jesus, deciding that not my…

Seek: M&M

Seek

This morning, we’re beginning a new message series entitled, “Seek.”  Over and over and over and over again, we’re called in God’s word to seek Him.  We know that if God calls us to do something, it’s not something that we’re going to do naturally on our own. What does it look like to seek after God, though?  Is it to read a devotional, pray before meals, listen to Christian music most of the time, go to church Sundays?  Is…
