A few miles from our church is a McDonald's that has become a favorite gathering spot for breakfast and lunch for many of our retirees and other folks. For more than a year now, Pastor Teresa joins the group on Wednesday for lunch, fellowship, laughing and fun. Others besides our church members often join in. It's a fun shared time where many have learned to know us and about
New Hope a little better. Some of our church members are always at McDonald's for lunch on Wednesday!

New Hope Choirs

The Music Ministry at New Hope is a vital part of our church life.  It finds its source in the Word of God…

Make a joyful noise to the Lord,

all the earth;

break forth into joyous song

and sing praise!

Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,

with the lyre and the sound of melody!

With trumpets and the sound of the horn

make a joyful noise before the King,

the Lord!

                                               Psalm 98:4-6

 

Through prayer, dedicated service and Christian love, our choirs endeavor to bring joy and inspiration to the worship experience at New Hope.  Using our God-given talents, we offer to Him our praise and thanksgiving through music.

Chancel Choir

Adult choir sings each week for the 10:00 worship hour.  This group shares diverse music from a variety of styles and periods.  Previous choral experience is an asset but not required.  High School students are welcome!  Choir rehearses Wednesdays at 7:00 pm.

Cherub Choir

Children ages 3 to 2nd grade sing once a month for worship.  They learn to sing on pitch, respond to rhythms, listen, memorize songs and hymns, and sing with or play instrumental accompaniments… and more!  Choir rehearses Sundays from 9 to 9:15 a.m. at which time the children are escorted to their nursery or elementary aged Sunday School class.

Teen & Adult Chimes Choir

Middle Schoolers through Retirees are welcome to come and chime in. Being able to read music is helpful, but not knowing how to read music is not a barrier to learning how to ring the chimes and join the choir.  Choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m. and play once a month during worship.

Instrumental

All children, youth, and adults who play instruments are encouraged to offer their talents as they participate in worship and other programs.  Whether one plays piano, guitar, handbells, or a wind, brass, or string instrument, we invite you to share your gifts with us.
