Worship

*At New Hope Presbyterian, we are adapting the way we do Worship!  Beginning Saturday, August 20, 2016 and continuing through to the end of the year, we will be worshipping on Saturday evenings!  All are welcome to join us for SatChat, our new form of "Sunday School" at 4 pm followed by Worship at 5 pm.  Please join us!


Come as You are

You will find that members and friends of New Hope Presbyterian come from all walks of life with all sorts of backgrounds!  As such, Worship is a time we gather in community to grow closer to God and each other.  There is no strict dress code.  All are welcome.


What to Expect

As you walk into the Sanctuary on Saturday afternoon, you will be greeted by a Greeter/Usher, a member or friend of New Hope, there to guide you on your journey through Worship with us.


There is a lectern near the entrance that contains our Worship GuestbookWorship Service BulletinsPrayer Requests/Praise Reports slips, Tithing and Mission Offering envelopes and Glory to God Hymnals.  

  • Guestbook:  Please sign in and allows us to acknowledge your presence with us
  • Bulletins:  Tons of useful information including Hymn numbers and the order of Worship!
  • Prayer/Praise slips:  Have a prayer request/praise report?  Ushers pick up these slips during the first hymn.
  • Tithing/Mission Offerings:  Would you prefer to identify your offering?  Slip it in an envelope!  We have Dollar Mission offerings every week for identified Church Missions.
  • Hymnal:  Our main source for music!
  • Large-print Binders:  Our bulletin and service music are available in large-print, just pick up one of these white binders!
Once you've signed in and have your Worship Helps, grab a seat, there are plenty of options:
  • The Sofas - plush and comfortable, easy on the back!
  • Pew Chairs - we've done away with the traditional wood pew!
  • Tables - sometimes we need to take notes, there is a table towards the back
  • Choir - join us in lifting our praises and songs jubilantly, talk to our Choir Director!
Have any questions?  Ask an usher, member or friend - we're here for you.  Thank you for joining us on this Worship Journey!
 
Named and Claimed
"Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine."
- Isaiah 43:1
 
Please share your name with us!  Throughout the Sanctuary you will find vines and nets holding nametags for our members and friends.  Don't have a nametag?  Do not fear, there is a nametag station to create one of your own.

Kids of the Kingdom
This is a special time in our service when children - of all ages - are invited to come forward for a message for our young disciples.  Grab a tambourine or maraca!  There's great gathering music for this time!

The Lord's Supper
Won't you join us in celebrating the Sacrament of The Lord's Supper?  "Ours is not a Presbyterian table, it is a table for all believers wishing to partake of this Sacrament.  The Feast is ready; the Gifts of God for the People of God."  The Lord's Supper is usually celebrated on the first Saturday of the month, as well as on other special days of the church season.
