Come and gather with your sisters in Christ on Wednesdays this Fall. Join Pastor Sarah for a time of fellowship, Biblical engagement, and spiritual growth. There are two different groups and studies you are invited to join. 
Romans: The Gospel of Grace 
This eight-week, in-depth study of Romans 1-8 walks slowly through one of the most influential books of the Bible. Romans points us to the gospel. As we study the book of Romans, we will be transformed by God’s grace and be overwhelmed by the Lord’s abundant mercy to us. Our hearts will be centered on the gospel and left in awe of God’s sovereign grace.
Meets on Wednesday Afternoons (12:30 pm to 2:00 pm) Begins on September 15th
God’s Unbreakable Promises 
In this six-session study, you will walk you through some of the promises and covenants God made with his people to understand more of the story of God and the big picture of his unfailing love for us. Through this study, featuring teaching videos from Jennie Allen, Lauren Chandler, and Jada Edwards, you will discover:
-The story of God throughout the Bible, and what it means for you now.
-That God always keeps his word, even if we don’t.
-That God never fails, even when his people do.
-God always keeps his promises.
Meets on Wednesday Evenings (7:00 pm to 8:00 pm) Begins on September 15th
This Fall, the Wednesday evening men’s group (Band of Brothers) will dig deeper into the Book of Acts. We’ll take a closer look at the stories, the journey’s, the trials, and the lives of early Christian believers that are present in this book of the Bible.
Band of Brothers has two primary goals:
1. Create lasting friendships through fellowship and discussion. Each gathering opens with a question such as “what has happened in your life since the last time we met” to “if you could go back in history to any single week of your life, when would that be.” If a man does not want to answer a question, it is more than okay to pass.

2. Read and reflect on God’s word together. The material is presented in way that all levels of Biblical knowledge should find it interesting, from first time readers to those who have studied the Bible for years.

Each gathering contains a stand-alone topic and requires no homework, so come when you can. Band of Brothers is held every other Wednesday evening, starting September 29th at 7:00 pm and ending promptly at 8:30 pm. Should you have questions or comments please don’t hesitate to reach out to Bill Bryan at
Empty Nesters is a social/support group at New Hope. We won’t discriminate if you aren’t an empty nester though! Before covid, we did activities such as bowling, attend a baseball game, dinner at a home, watch OSU/Michigan game. If you are interested in joining our group, please contact Russ Fling ( with Empty Nesters in the subject). Thank you!
Are you looking for a way to grow in your spiritual walk with Jesus Christ? Whether you have walked with Jesus for many years or you are just taking the first steps on your faith journey you are invited to join a discipleship opportunity called The Journey.

The Journey is a life-changing set of experiences and relationships guided by three primary questions: Who is God? Who am I? What does God desire to do through me?

A new Journey group co-facilitated by Kathy Dunkin and Terri Forgy will begin in the fall. Contact Pastor Sarah if you are interested in taking The Journey.
