Have you ever had an unshakable thought about God? Something you read in the Bible or an idea from a favorite author that put words to that thing you have always felt but did not know how to articulate? We've asked five different people, "What is the thought that keeps you up at night with your mind excitedly racing?" Do you want to hear what they have to say? Me too! In this series we're sharing some thoughts and asking God to enlighten us by bringing these ideas to life!
This week Roy shares how God gave him a passion for kids.
Most of us would personally choose to avoid brokenness, if we could. We prefer life clean over messy. But life tends to be full of breaks, piles, and messes way more than perfect, just as we planned it, scenarios. That does not have to mean that we get more and more broken or wallow in messiness. God not only wants to restore brokenness, He wants to redeem it as well. In this message, listen to a powerful story of how God took a mess and turned it into mission in a way that is making a difference in our community!
This week Coach Rick Rios makes his first appearance on the New Hope stage with some thoughts on relationships.
On Father's Day weekend we can feel extremely high, unbelievably low, or even both. Your dad may be awesome or not so great. Maybe you have lost your dad or never really even knew him. The reason these things evoke such emotion is because relationships are powerful. This week we're talking about relationships... know that there is no better time than now to value the people in your life and to spark a new and better relationship with your Heavenly Father!
This week Herschell Hargrave visits New Hope with a message about what God can do if we commit to loving Him and loving people.
Have you ever thought more should be happening? In your life? In the church? In the culture around us? Have you ever wondered why there wasn't more transformation in all of these areas? And in all that thinking, have you ever felt a twinge of guilt because maybe there are things like fear or busyness that keep you from being all in yourself? In this message, a new voice focuses on what would happen if we all lived the life God is calling us to!
This week Pastor Ned shares his heart for New Hope ministries.
Do you love New Hope? Not quite sure what to think of it? Are we way different than any other church you've attended in the past? In this message you'll hear from someone who has tons of "church" experience, but even with only having been with us for less than two years has fallen in love with what he calls, "Life... New Hope Style!"
This week Pastor Rob and Amy Banbury talk about seeking the ultimate prize.
Have you ever missed out on something you needed or wanted because you couldn't get enough perks included to pull the trigger? So many times we live our lives as an exercise in missing the point. Sometimes we are so interested in the 'extras' that we miss out on the actual prize. If you are tired of missing out on the best stuff because you're distracted by the wrong things, this message is for you!
