BUILDING ONE ANOTHER UP BY SERVING CHRIST
9am - Sunday School (small group bible studies)
New Hope has a great variety of age groups going through various books of the bible as well as following the curriculum from Lifeway. Our classes meet in the Family Life Center, the second floor of the sanctuary, and in the youth building.
We have a college class, a young couples class and several classes that have a mix of single and married folks in them.
No matter your age, if you are age 18 to 118, we have a class for you!
5pm - Adult Choir Practice - Worship leader Laurie Brasher encourages all who are interested in joining our choir, to please come visit us on Sunday evenings! During our weekly practice, we go over the material that we will be singing on Sunday mornings and for various seasonal musical events. Our adult choir practice is in the church sanctuary.
Noon - Men's Lunch (Pell City Steak House) Come join Bro. Paul (pastor), and Bro. Jacque (assoc. pastor) and other men from the church as we eat, fellowship and pray together. This is a great hour of accountability and catching up on what's going on in the lives of the men represented. This is a great break in your Monday - come join us!
6:30pm - Small group bible studies.
Pastor's Class (6:30pm) The topics for this class vary during the year, but at the moment, Bro. Paul Brasher is teaching through the book "Experiencing God" by Henry Blackaby. Come spend some informal time each week with our pastor as he teaches this worthwhile study. We meet in the Family Life Center.
Ladies' Bible Study (6:30pm) The topics for this class also vary during the year. This is a great time of learning and for building relationships with other women of the church. We meet in the Adult Choir Room.
Men's Bible Study (6:30pm) Imagine a group of men whose sole purpose for meeting is to go over the church prayer list and pray for those in need. Additionally, time spent studying God's Word under the direction of class leader John O. Sims. This is a great time of fellowship and accountability. We meet in the Family Life Center.
