WHAT TO EXPECT

While we hope this website can serve as a basic introduction for you, the best way to learn about New Hope is to visit us in person for one of services. Here you can learn a little about what you can expect on a visit to one of our services.

Our Times and Locations:

We have two locations where we worship. We hope you will visit whichever location that best fits your needs. For directions, go here. 
 
IRASBURG | Worship Service on Sunday at 10 AM
 
BROWNINGTON | Worship Services on Sunday at 10 AM and 6:30 PM 

 

Our Service:

You can expect to be warmly welcomed to a lively environment. We love visitors and we hope you will enjoy glorifying the Lord with us. Our service incorporates: 
 
MUSIC – We mix contemporary and traditional styles of music with an aim to give every individual an opportunity to worship the Triune God. 
  
PRAISE & PRAYER – We share praises to God for what he is doing in our lives and we offer up prayer requests to be made before him in corporate prayer. 
 
PREACHING – We teach God’s Word in a relevant and engaging way, with a desire to be both faithful to the text and practical enough for daily life. 
 
FELLOWSHIP – We are a community, and we welcome you to be a part of it as we interact with each other before and after the service. Stay around at the end of the service to grab some refreshments and connect with us.

 

Dress:

If you are planning a visit you might be wondering if we have some “unwritten dress code.” We don’t! Our members and friends arrive in anything from casual to semi-formal and you will not be judged for what you wear.

 

Offering:

During each service we receive an offering which is one way we express our gratitude to God for what he has done for us and given to us. We use these monies to maintain the ministries the Lord has given us to do. We do not expect or depend on you, as a visitor, to give. Feel free to pass the basket on to the next person in your row. New Hope also provides an online giving option for those who find that helpful.

 

Children:

As soon as you step in, you will see that New Hope is a family-friendly church. There are many children here, of many different ages. We provide a nursery for parents to use, toddler care, child care and children’s worship during the service. These ministries serve children up until 4th grade. We want families with infants, toddlers and teens to feel welcome in our services!
