It’s All Too Much

Bills due, family stress, work deadlines, disturbing news. Too many places to be. Too many demands on our time. All these things piled up in our minds, the fear of everything toppling… it can lead to an anxious mind.

Anxiety is very real, and it can get in the way of our relationships, slow down our work or home performance, and rob us of our peace and possibilities for our future. We all experience, or will experience, anxiety. But we don’t have to be dominated by it.

We invite you to join us for a new series to better understand what feeds our anxiety and how we can use God-given tools to respond to it. Come experience genuine community in a warm, welcoming environment, and discover how to overcome the anxious mind.

The Anxious Mind, Part I: Understand What Fuels it

April 16  |  Fueled by Circumstances

April 30  |  Fueled by Personal Pain

It’s hard to combat anxiety without community! Here are a few ways you can get connected at New Hope.

Hope Groups

A community you can lean on during times of stress or difficulty is important. At New Hope, our Hope Groups are relationship-based communities that offer focused Bible study and on-going support as you face life together. Get Connected

Unsure about joining a Hope Group? We have an Intro to Hope Groups class that will help you better understand what Hope Groups are all about. Attenders can “test out” a Hope Group while finding community and developing spiritual habits. The first Intro to Hope Groups class begins April 16 at 9:30 am in Education Building (EDU) 203.
