June 23rd: Church Picnic!!!!!!!

Following worship we invite everyone to stay and enjoy good ole hamburgers and

hot dogs with all the trimmings !

We will enjoy some homemade desserts !

Anyone who will donate a dessert we would appreciate it!


Monthly Meeting is held on the Tuesday after 3rd Sunday at 7pm each month. That is a time that we talk about the business decisions of the church. At this time we are searching for a full time Senior Pastor and there are many important decisions to be made and we encourage all members to attend.

Some of the changes we are making at this time is combining all the adult Sunday school classes which will meet in the Fellowship hall at 9:45 am. We would like to see our Sunday school attendance increase and see more children in Sunday school. We pray that each one will be praying for our church and feel the need to be here.


Church Family Ministries led by Elizabeth Golimowski meet on the first Monday night each month at 6:30 pm. They plan the church activities for the year. This is a tremendous job and works very well. In January we had a Movie Night on the 27th with approximately 60 people in attendance. The movie shown was "I CAN ONLY IMAGINE". They served soup and sandwiches and popcorn during the movie. It was so much fun!

On February 24th we had Movie Night and watched the movie "DO YOU BELIEVE" was shown. Coffee and Hot Chocolate was served along with homemade desserts. Again it was a great night to watch a good Christian movie.

On March 8th plans were to have a MARCH MADNESS BASKETBALL game. This has been cancelled.

They have chosen June 22nd this year for a one day Bible School. Starting at 9 am through 2 pm. So mark your calendars and bring your children, grandchildren, and friends to enjoy this fun filled day. On the following Sunday the children will present during worship their activities and songs. Afterwards we have a family picnic to enjoy fellowship and celebrate our children.


New Hope Friends and its people are proud to support the Meals On Wheels

Program which serves Wayne Co. Many of our church people help deliver meals every day. They have the privilege of meeting people and helping to make a difference in their lives. A friendly face and conversation which might be the only one they will see that day. A good hot meal that they can count on and look forward to. We thank those who participate and give of their time to show Gods love to those in need. Our annual offering for this program will be taken on Sunday, Feb. 24th.

Bobby Trivette who is the coordinator for this area would like to thank all the volunteers from New Hope Friends
