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

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 last week to 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 will,…

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…

Palm Sunday

This morning, we celebrate Palm Sunday also known as Passion Sunday!  Although we haven’t been meeting for our community services this year, most churches have been moving through the season of Lent.  Lent is a period of 40 days set apart for prayer, repentance, and sacrifice to remember and to honor the sacrifice of Jesus beginning with Ash Wednesday. Today marks the beginning of the last week in the earthly life of Jesus where we really see His passion for…

Identity Crisis: God’s People

We’ve been learning for some time now all about who we are in Christ.  We are looking at several identity crises that exist surrounding who we truly are when everything else is stripped away; our true identity. In Christ, we become so many new things!  Born again, children of God, free indeed, temples filled with the Holy Spirit, overcomers, equipped with spiritual gifts, and unconditionally loved.  Today, we are closing up the series with this general, but incredibly awesome reality. …

Identity Crisis: Freedom

This morning, we continue our “Identity Crisis” message series where we are faced with that question, “When everything else fails, at your core, who are you?”  We’ve been reminded how we were created on purpose and for a purpose.   We are loved, children of God, temples, gifted, and overcomers.  We overcome by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony! We’re beginning today by seeing the importance of testimony and the need to validate it.  After all,…

Identity Crisis: Overcomer

This morning, we continue our “Identity Crisis” message series where we are faced with that question, “When everything else fails, at your core, who are you?”  We’ve been reminded how we were created on purpose and for a purpose. We learned of our need to be born again and how, at that  moment, we become children of God.  We were also reminded of the worship war raging and how jealous the enemy must be of us.  After all, God chose…
