Hello New Hope,
October is pastor appreciation month. Lori Floyd, our deacon over the Finance Team, put together this special note for the month.
Jeremiah 3:15 says: “And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.”
New Hope has been incredibly blessed by God with shepherds that pursue God’s heart and work tirelessly to keep us, His sheep, fed with the Word and cared for in so many ways. Please take the opportunity during the month of October to show each of our staff ministry leaders how much you appreciate their hearts for God and us. During this month there will be baskets in the gallery, one for each staff leader. Feel free to leave a note of thanks, or other token of your appreciation, for each of them as the Spirit leads. Thank you for supporting and loving those that love and care for us.

IMPORTANT: Appalachian Food Drive Items Due
We have been collecting items for the Appalachian Food Drive. If you are planning to buy groceries or have items to contribute they need to be delivered to the church gallery before Saturday, October 9.
On Sunday, October 31st we will have a church lunch, games for kids, and candy immediately following the worship service! We will also have the Tennessee Titans football games on the bog screen. Most of this will take place under a big tent next to New Hope’s new playground so this event will happen RAIN or SHINE.
At the conclusion of the worship service we will all go outside and have a huge picnic. So dress accordingly.
The purpose of this event is for every New Hope member to INVITE a friend or family to attend church with you that day. Lunch will be provided. Games will be provided. NFL football will be provided…Fun is provided!
There are Blocktober invite cards in the church gallery for you to take and give to a friend or family as an invitation.
P.S. You can donate halloween candy for this event. Just drop it off at the church office during the month of October.
New Hope’s Online Bulletin and Information
As you walk around New Hope’s facility you will notice these cards (pictured above) on the wall. All you need to do is open the camera app on your phone and then hold your phone over the card so the lens can pick up the entire card. The “Scan Me” portion should highlight and give you an option to open up a link in your web browser. This browser will send you to New Hope’s latest financial information, news, and events.
A New Hope Newsletter is Coming in November!
I’m also excited to let you know that in November we will begin distributing a monthly New Hope Newsletter that will keep you up to speed on what is happening throughout the congregation and in leadership. We will have devotional thoughts from pastors and updates on ministries. I’ll have more updates on this in the near future.
