New Hope UMC


It was another special day at New Hope as we got the new year started off right with a Singing and Scripture Service. This was a return engagement for Ed Hinshaw and pianist Misty Salley as they were with us on October 30, 2016. This service featured a theme of Thankfulness, for God's Goodness and Mercy, His Comfort and Presence, His Love and Mercy and Our Hope in God.  The hymns and scripture are selected to carry out the theme for the particular expression of thankfulness. It is a very moving and endearing experience to celebrate our fellowship and communion with God in this way. And to do it under the leadership of Ed and Misty is special indeed. Ed rendered a beautiful solo of "My Tribute" to add to the occasion. See order of worship

It was a little different as we departed from the customary comfort food to enjoy servings of chili, sandwiches, rice and brunswick stew and a generous selection of desserts.

As usual, we have many folks to thank - certainly Ed, Misty, Pastor Sandra and Tom Jennings. Also the ladies of the church who got everything read and prepared the delectable desserts. And the members and friends who enjoyed another gathering at New Hope. And most of all, God, who has blessed us abundantly and to whom we offer our Thankfulness.
