LETTER FROM THE PASTOR

Dear Friends and Explorer,

Whether you were just exploring by clicking around to see what is on some of the church websites or actively looking for a church, I am glad that you have chosen to visit newhopepresbyterian.com.  Please let me tell you a little about New Hope Church.


New Hope Presbyterian Church is a small church with a big heart! (Usually we have about 60 people in worship each Sunday and our membership is around 120.) Our primary goal is to offer everyone an opportunity to honor and to worship Jesus Christ in a warm and nurturing environment. 


New Hope Church is a part of Redstone Presbytery in the Presbyterian Church USA denomination. As such, some of our mission work and activities are carried out with the other churches of Redstone Presbytery and with the other churches of our denomination.


The biblical purposes of the church are: 

1. To worship and to honor Jesus Christ,

2. To make disciples,

3. To be a blessing to the community, and

4. To always be open to hearing God directing us to other specific new ministries.


I am a “transitional pastor” at New Hope Church. My calling is to serve as the pastor of the New Hope Church while a search committee looks for a permanent pastor to fill that position. I then hope to move on to another church to help them with their transition as well.


Please consider joining us for worship this Sunday morning at 10:30 AM. We would love to meet you and I believe that you will experience a warm welcome and you will find it to be time well spent.


Sincerely In Christ,

Rev. John B. Simpson, Temporary Pastor
