Our passion at New Hope is to lead others to become fully devoted disciples of Jesus Christ. Recognizing that we are all on a journey, we desire to travel along side of you as you travel along the road of discipleship. We have several environments designed to help you develop as a Christian. These environments include Sunday School, Starting Points, and Discipleship Class.
Sunday School is a place where you can meet with a smaller group of believers to discuss and study topics relating to the Christian life. It is a great next step on your discipleship journey. In this environment you will find a welcoming atmosphere where you can feel free to explore and develop your faith. Sunday School classes are offered during both our 9:00 and 10:30am services on Sundays. Below you will find the classes we are currently offering; feel free to join one this Sunday.
9:00 SERVICE CLASSES
STARTING POINTS Teacher: TBA
Ever find yourself wishing you knew for certain what the Bible teaches about certain topics? In this class, you will build a strong spiritual foundation and grow more confident in your Christian walk through exploring God’s Word. Regardless if you are a new believer or a long-time follower of Jesus, your faith will be strengthened by exploring what the Bible says about sin, salvation, baptism, obedience, prayer and the church.
BIBLE STUDY Teachers: Jim & Sonya Ingalls
The Bible is so much more than a “good book.” It is God’s Word to us. The Bible is literally “God-breathed” (2 Tim. 3:16). In other words, it is God’s very words to you and to me. Today, there are so many questions that people are asking, and God has the answers for us in Scripture. Join this class if you would like to immerse yourself in God’s Word and learn how to apply it to your life.
WHEN HELPING HURTS Teacher: Rob Arms
Did you know that we often have faulty assumptions about the causes of poverty, and while we desire to help people, the way we help can do more harm than good? Rob Arms, New Hope’s mission director, will guide this class through the book When Helping Hurts exploring foundational concepts, clearly articulated general principles and relevant applications to learn how to effectively and holistically minister to the poor, not just offer a truncated gospel.
ONE ANOTHER Teacher: Ken Whitehurst
If you are interested in getting better connected with one another or desire to discover what the Bible has to say about how we share life with one another, sign up for this class. Our hope is to develop meaningful relationships and be there with one another for whatever joys and challenges life brings.
10:30 SERVICE CLASSES
DISCPLIESHIP CLASS Teacher: Ron Darr
Are you looking to take that next step in your relationship with Christ? We have rebuilt our discipleship class from the bottom up and are excited to see how God is going to use it to equip and develop you to become more like who He created you to be. This class is actually 4 quarters long and will be taught by four different teachers. This class is more than your typical Sunday School class. It will challenge you through homework, exercises, accountability and encouragement.
THE MUD & THE MASTERPIECE Teacher: William Neely
In his follow up to No Perfect People Allowed, John Burke describes the reason “sinners” ran from the religious yet ran to Jesus had everything to do with his heart’s attitude toward people. They could sense Jesus was for them – not against them. Unlike the Pharisees, who could only see the mud of sin, Jesus saw a masterpiece under the mud that was so valuable he was willing to give his life to restore messy people to the original work of art He created them to be.
FINANCIAL PEACE Teacher: Kevin Livingston
Are you ready to get control of your finances? Would you like to know how thousands have gotten out of debt and found financial freedom? Financial Peace University is the place for you this quarter.
JADED FAITH Teacher: Lisa Burton
Many people are disillusioned with the faith they’ve inherited. They see the churches of their youth as superficial and irrelevant to their deepest concerns. Meanwhile, culture pushes and pulls them in many directions, none of its pathways leading to true life. In Jaded Faith, Jarod Osborne confronts head-on the disorientation and disappointment you may be experiencing in your own journey of faith. He helps you navigate – spiritually and intellectually – the most common side-trails that cause young adults to wander from the Christian faith. For those who still want to believe despite their disillusionment, Osborne illuminates the pathway through jaded to a stronger, intellectually honest walk with Christ.
