As far as Wednesday evening programming this Fall, Common Ground, our ministry for students in 6th-12th grade, will not be meeting on Sunday mornings but will be meeting on Wednesday nights beginning September 16 at 6:30p. Common Ground will utilize the Education Building and we won't be hosting Extreme Team for elementary students or adult class options. There will be one adult class, offered in the sanctuary, each Wednesday evening beginning September 16 at 6:30p.
Session and staff have worked hard to balance out the space and time the many thriving ministries at New Hope are given on campus each week. They've taken into consideration CDC guidelines, the measures being taken by the Lee County School District and created a plan so all age groups can enjoy time on campus each week. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact one of the elders, Pastor Eddie or Pastor Mike.
We're taking communion this Sunday, August 2 and Pastor Eddie will bring us the message. You can worship on campus with us at 9am for a traditional service or 11am for the contemporary one and we'll continue to provide our services online.
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. Updates will be posted on Facebook and our website should any of our plans change. 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 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!
