After 21 days of rain delays, we can finally see the footprint of our future education facility, where we believe God will be creating spiritual foundations in many lives! What an exciting time at New Hope!
As Vince Antonucci put it, “If you claim to be following Jesus and you’re very rarely astonished by what He’s doing in your life or afraid of where He’s leading you, you’re probably not following Jesus.” So why follow Christ? Who wants to be astonished or afraid?
We are very excited to have launched our new, updated website! Our goal is to communicate the life of our church -- not only what's going on here at New Hope, but what we're learning, how we're serving, in what ways we are growing as a church, and in what ways we can help disciple you outside of New Hope walls.
We just finished our third year of Easter at the Cedar Park Center! Why have Easter at an event/sports arena? The answer is simple. More people are willing to come to a neutral location, which means more people exposed to the life-transforming message of Jesus.
If you’ve been around our campus lately, you’ll notice a few things disappearing. The houses along Juniper Trail (that New Hope has used as small group education space) are now gone, making way for a new, and much needed, parking lot. How exciting to see our journey that began two years ago start to become a reality!
Author, Jay Kesler wrote, “One of my goals in life is to wind up with eight men who are willing to carry one of my handles.” He of course is referring to his funeral and the friends who would gladly take a handle of his casket. Whether or not you have consistently been a genuine friend will likely be proven at your funeral.
Fear has the potential to rob us of many things. As Paul indicates in Philippians fear when left unchallenged can steal our joy. It can stifle initiative to take a faith step. Fear left unchecked will paralyze your life.
