How do I get Pastoral Care or prayer?
Fill out a connect card on our website at this link to submit your prayer request or to have a pastor contact you. And, as always, feel free to contact the office directly to let us know how we can pray for you. You can also visit our Facebook group page called New Hope Community Church Prayer Alert to engage with our praying community
Is the church office open or closed?
Our offices are open! Office hours are 8:30am – 4:30pm, Monday through Friday.
Is food assistance available?
Yes. At this time, New Hope is equipped to help with critical food needs. Curbside food pickup is available on Sundays from 11:30am-12noon. We look forward to helping you! Just drive up to the front of the building to the FOOD STOREHOUSE PICK-UP sign. We will ask how many people reside in your home, and we will give you food items to help you through the week.
Food is also available 8:30-4:30 Monday through Friday by appointment. We can even deliver food if you’re not able to get out. Call the office at 231-938-8056 to make arrangements.
Can I donate to the Food Storehouse?
Yes! You can send a check to the church office indicating that you want to contribute to the food storehouse, or you can give online and indicate “Benevolence – NH Food Storehouse” as the fund.
You can also donate food items. Here’s a list of needed items, in order of priority:
Mac & Cheese
Sloppy Joe Sauce
Taco Shells (hard/Soft)
Canned Vegetables (not Green Beans)
Box Potato Mixes
Canned Soups (hearty)
How do I stay connected?
We have a number of small groups connecting digitally through online formats, as well as some that have gone back to in-person meetings. Even though the culture is social-distancing, we want to remain as spiritually connected as possible. Check out all small groups and see which ones are meeting virtually or in person.
What about Wednesday ministry for teens and kids?
We meet every Wednesday from 6:30-8pm! We have something for everyone, newborn-12th grade. Head to our connect pages for more details!
