Happy Friday, Church Family!


October is Pastor Appreciation month and we're taking some time to honor Pastor Mike Jones. Pastor Mike celebrated 30 years as an ordained minister in August of 2021 and has done a fantastic job of leading our church throughout the pandemic, transition, and beyond.

For the next two Sundays, October 17 and 24, there will be baskets available in the lobby before and after worship, for you to drop off a card or note of thanks to Pastor Mike for all he does week in and week out for God's Kingdom and New Hope Presbyterian.

How blessed we are to have such a positive, caring, outstanding teacher and leader as part of our church, be sure to take the time to tell him "Thanks"!


We're incredibly excited to announce that New Hope is paying off the mortgage on our existing property 10 YEARS EARLY and we are COMPLETELY DEBT FREE! Glory to God! To mark this momentous occasion, we're gathering in one combined service at 10am on Sunday, November 7 to worship God and praise Him for His providence. Immediately following the service, we'll gather on the lawn to rejoice, have lunch, and spend time with one another in friendship and community.


A few things to keep in mind:

  • There will be no adult Sunday School or Common Ground that day
  • There will be regular classes for birth-5th grade
  • There will be no charge for this event

 

We'll share more details as the date approaches, but make plans to be here. You don't want to miss this celebration!


We're excited to dive into week two of our new series "The Gospel According To Joseph" this Sunday. Be sure to join us on campus or watch online!

Super thanks to our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group for supporting one of New Hope's mission partners, We Care, with donations this week! MOPS Mamas brought in diapers, towels, and detergent to help our neighbors right here in SWFL. MOPS is a dynamic program and a thriving part of ministry here at New Hope. If you'd like more information about attending or helping as a Mentor Mom, contact Pam Poland at pam@newhopefortmyers.org.


We urge you to stay spiritually connected with your church family and join us for weekly Sunday worship on campus at 9:30am and 11am or online, 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 have a prayer need, please do not hesitate to reach out to Pastor Mike at mike@newhopefortmyers.org or 813.368.1680.

With Love,
Your New Hope Team
