ADULT MINISTRIES

Meaningful Church Ministries to Get Involved In

New Hope Community Church

WOMEN’S MINISTRY

Women’s Ministry is an arm of the church that seeks to minister to the unique and personal needs of women.

The focus is prayer, worship, and the study of the Word of God. A major component of this ministry is in the application of the Scriptures to the daily lives of women. Testimony and sisterly fellowship are also important parts of this ministry. Personal prayer ministry is offered to those who wish to stay after the study.

Currently, the monthly meetings are held on the fourth Saturday of the month. All women are encouraged without hesitation to join us as we grow in the grace and knowledge of our God. The women are encouraged to bring friends who may or may not be members of the church. Luke 10:42

MEN’S MINISTRY

Men’s Ministry provides education for spiritual growth, development, support, and fellowship for the men in our church. Our men meet monthly for fellowship and breakfast on the first Saturday of the month at 8:00 a.m. Men’s meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.

Every quarter, the men in the nearby town’s churches join together for a conference called “Brothering my Brother.”  We come alongside each other to share our common struggles and devise a plan to overcome them through God’s grace and power.

Come join us and be sharpened. We are stronger together.

USHER MINISTRY

The New Hope Community Church Usher Ministry is responsible for being the doorkeepers to the house of God and caretaking His people. Our mission is to prepare the sanctuary for service and greet everyone with the love of Christ in an effort to promote a welcoming atmosphere for worship. This is accomplished through greeting members and guests, directing people to their seats, maintaining proper traffic flow, receiving the tithes and offerings, and making sure the sanctuary is always clean. 

Members of this ministry have answered the call of God’s Holy Spirit. We are organized into two groups of junior ushers, starting at age 10 years old and senior ushers.

MISSIONS MINISTRY

The Ministry of Missions was conceived in the heart of God our Heavenly Father and revealed through His Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. The purpose of the New Hope Community Church Missions Department is to follow Christ’s example by sharing the Good News of the Gospel to all people through Outreach Ministry (according to Matthew 25:31-46: feed the hungry, clothe the naked and serve the thirsty with the Word of God).  

Our goal is to provide our God-given skills and abilities to help provide support to individuals and organizations in need, being used by God to care for His people whether near or far.

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY

“For you created my innermost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139: 13-14

New Hope Community Church
every stitch is a prayer

Our mission is to serve as an outreach ministry to all who enjoy knitting and/or crocheting, covering our time and stitches in prayer. Every stitch is a prayer for healing, comfort, love, peace, strength, endurance, encouragement, miracles, faith, and more. 

As we knit/crochet, we are standing in the gap for those who will receive the shawls and blankets that we create. Sometimes we know the recipient and sometimes we don’t, but God knows everyone who will receive a shawl or blanket. We are the vessels that He has chosen to use the gifts He has given for His glory. 

We show the love of Jesus through prayer and serving others. A prayer shawl is a tangible reminder of the love of Christ and that someone is praying for you.

There are many ways to participate in the Prayer Shawl Ministry:

  • Knit or crochet a shawl or blanket during our meetings, at home or both
  • Attend our monthly meetings to knit, crochet, learn, pray, and fellowship – Meetings are held on the third Saturday of the month at 11:00 a.m.
  • Support the ministry financially by giving money for materials or donating materials
  • Pray for this ministry, for those who participate, and for those who receive a shawl or blanket

Yes! We would be happy to help beginners get started in this ministry. We have all the supplies you need to get you started: yarn, needles, and hooks. Come with willing hands and a prayerful heart and we will teach you something rewarding and fulfilling.

Anyone who desires a shawl or blanket can have one. You don’t have to be a member of the New Hope Community Church to receive a shawl or blanket. If you know of someone who would like a shawl/blanket, please let us know.

There is no cost for a shawl/blanket. It is a love offering. Just let one of the members know, and we will make sure that we get a shawl/blanket to the requester or recipient. Each shawl/blanket is prayed for as a member is creating it, and before it is distributed, the members lay hands on it and cover it in prayer. It is our desire to share the love of Jesus through this ministry.

Email us at prayershawl@newhopechurchweb.com. There is no cost for the shawls/blanket
