150 Year Celebration

“Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 1:6

 

Every Story Has a Beginning

Our story began October 22, 1868, when a small group of men and women who trusted in God, and responded to His calling of this church body to serve one another and the Williamson County/Cedar Park communities. This is where we begin, but our story is still unfolding.

This year, we celebrate 150 years of God's faithfulness as we gratefully acknowledge the people, leaders, community and moments that formed New Hope's past and present story, as well as imagine the promising possibilities that God has for its future.

 

Did You Know?

  • Williamson County was founded in 1848; New Hope was founded 20 years later on October 22, 1868.
  • New Hope's first pastor served in 1869 for $14.50 a month!
  • New Hope's first log church was leased as a school house by the state of Texas from 1871-1919.
  • In New Hope's early years, members wanting to attend prayer meetings/revivals would bring their wagons and animals and park on New Hope's property for the week. In between prayer and message times, they would tend to their animals and fellowship with friends.
  • New Hope has actively supported the Buckner Orphanages (currently Texas Baptist Children's Home) for over 125 years.
  • For decades, during summers, New Hope would roll out its piano under a brush arbor (topped with fresh cut cedar limbs) and host week-long community revivals.
  • New Hope has offered VBS to the community since 1942 (that's 76 years!)
  • New Hope started with 6 charter members; 150 years later we have 2,342 active members and prospects.

 

Community Gifts

Even though this will be our 150th Birthday, we want the gifts to be from us, to our community! Each month leading up to our big day in October, we will bless our community with a series of gifts - a way to celebrate the invaluable life --past, present and future -- that it has and will be our privilege to serve.
