Even in dark times...



Hey Church Family!

We pray you are well and enjoying the start of Summer! Even though June may not look like it used to, Summer is not cancelled! Ministry continues full steam ahead here at New Hope and we’re excited for all the fun and opportunities to live out the gospel together over the coming months! Last week, we had another 2000 PB&J sandwiches delivered to We Care, the Children’s Ministry hosted a fun family scavenger hunt and kicked off a wonderful FOCUS activity pack to keep kids, and even their parents, looking to Jesus over the coming weeks and we helped Colonial Elementary with their 5th grade promotion ceremony. Student Ministry has some fun and creative things scheduled for students in a socially distanced way for June & July and we’ll be back to on campus worship on June 25! Session and staff have researched the best and safest ways we can begin to meet together and all the details can be found by clicking the SITUATION UPDATE button below. With respect to guidelines from the CDC, we are monitoring our local COVID-19 numbers and if changes to our re-opening plan are necessary, we’ll adjust. Make sure you like us on Facebook and check our website for the latest updates. We know that not everyone may be able to come back or feel comfortable worshipping in the sanctuary so we will continue to offer traditional and contemporary services online for in home viewing, too.

Initially, we are only restarting on campus worship services with no separate programming for early childhood, elementary or student ministry. Families are encouraged to worship with their children in our sanctuary that has been set up with physical distancing protocols. We’ve added additional services to accommodate people in a secure way and will begin offering 5 opportunities each week to attend.


We urge you to stay spiritually connected with your church family and join us for weekly Sunday worship as well as checking out the videos from our staff and pastors on the Experience New Hope channel. We’re continuing to pray and if you have concerns about our plans to meet in person or a prayer need, please do not hesitate to reach out to Pastor Eddie (239.450.3331) or Pastor Mike (813.368.1680). Don’t forget to check out our safety measures and plans for gathering again on campus, along with the service time details by clicking the SITUATION UPDATE button below!

With Love,
Your New Hope Team
