Health And Safety Precautions For New Hope
Corona Virus (COVID-19)

You’re Not Alone. We’re Praying For You!

“These are the times that try men’s souls…” Perhaps, the words of Thomas Paine have never been truer in our lifetime than they are today. At this moment, we are confronted by a crisis unlike anything we have ever witnessed … Corona Virus – 19 (or COVID-19). As one minister stated, “These are extraordinary times, requiring extraordinary means to minister to the people we’ve been called to serve.” Our leadership team has spent countless hours in personal prayer and engaged in robust dialogue; reviewing directives from national, state and local officials; talking and praying with other local pastors; and pouring over CDC and WHO reports in an effort to ascertain God’s heart and our best course of action. We have taken nothing for granted and left no stone unturned.

As Pastor, I have noted that many in our community have very strong feelings about how the church should choose to gather during this crisis. Our response is designed to meet the spiritual needs of our members while minimizing exposure to the disease. With that in mind, various precautionary measures are being implemented. We take these measures very seriously and expect our membership to do so as well for the health and safety of all.

We are suspending most on-site activities until further notice. This includes all Adult and Youth Ministry related activities and meetings. Bible Study and other small group studies are being shifted to online platforms. We will provide details for those changes in the very near future. The Intercessory Prayer Team will conduct prayer sessions through teleconferencing on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. The Renovation 2020 Prayer-Line still convenes Monday-Friday at 6 a.m.
