COVID-19 Updates - March 31, 2020

Dear Church Family,

Our Elders, staff and I believe the right course of action is to suspend all on-campus activities through April. We won't be able to physically gather for Easter this year, but the wonder and celebration of the Lord's Resurrection will continue! Be on the lookout for a mailing from us this week to keep the entire family focused on Holy Week. We are also producing some exciting special elements for our online worship gatherings during this Easter season that we hope will be a blessing to you.

Our mission and focus of "Living out the gospel together" remains the same here at New Hope despite worldly circumstances. Our staff has tirelessly worked to bring a quality digital experience into homes across our community as well as serve practical needs via medical supply donations to medical professionals and food to our local mission partner, We Care.

Please know that if you have a pastoral or prayer need, you can contact me, Eddie ( or cell phone 239-450-3331), Pastor Mike ( or cell phone 813-368-1680), or any of our staff by email. Please be assured that while your staff is following the guidelines of the CDC, including social distancing, we are working diligently. I urge each of you to use your phone and other social media to check on and encourage those in our church family.

Here are some instructions for joining us for church online this week:

  • On Sundays at 9:30am (traditional) and 11am (contemporary), we will have our worship services available. Starting at 9:30am or 11am on Sunday, you can watch either service from home on your computer or phone by clicking here.
  • You can also access the livestream by clicking the “Online Worship & Sermon Video Feeds” banner on our church website homepage.

We continue to believe this is a great opportunity for each one of us to be the Church as we seek to live out the gospel together.

Great peace in the Lord, Eddie
