All About God.      All About People.     
…All About Serving, too!
We have all been given spiritual gifts, abilities, giftings, personality traits, and directions from the Lord that we are to ALL be serving people in the Kingdom of God! Please pray about where you are serving, and if you are not serving, where you will begin to serve. We want every person at New Hope serving the Lord somewhere through our church ministries and for His Kingdom. If you are not serving, or if you would like to serve even more people and make a larger impact, please consider serving in one of these areas below.
I Peter 4:10-11, “God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.”
[Our Ministry Teams function on rotating schedules planned out by the Leaders.]

AUDIO/VISUAL.  Our A/V team is vital to our worship services and other events.  This is the ministry team for those who love worship, sound, and media.  Audio Volunteers need to have the ability and talent to be able to blend and mix the worship services to New Hope’s “sound and blending”.  Visual Volunteers need the desire and computer skills to learn multiple programs to display visuals during worship and events and to coordinate our worship service live-stream.

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY.  This ministry encompasses children from birth – 5th Grade, but we know that everyone has their special giftings in working with students and prefer some age groups to work with.  Our Early Childhood Team incorporates the nursery and toddler ages that allows us to start our young ones early growing UP in the Lord.  We need volunteers in our nursery and toddler rooms to care for them, teach them, read Bible stories to them, do crafts with them, play with them, and let them know how much God loves them.  Our Children’s Ministry Team is for our children ages pre-k to 5th Grade, and encompasses our children’s Bible Classes and Teachers, KidzClub Worship, Check-In Counter, Greeting, Special Events, VBS, Activities, Retreats, Camp Sponsors, etc.  If you love kids & sharing God’s love with them in any way mentioned above, please join us.  As you pour into these kids, they immensely bless you…It’s a win-win.  Help us give these children a good solid foundation in the Lord.  (Background Checks Required)

We believe in the power of prayer and its encouragement, and if you love praying with and for others, get involved.
