A note to recurring donors: New Hope has recently moved from using Continue to Give to using PushPay. Please email us with questions about the change. Thank you!
On Sunday, March 20th 2016 New Hope’s celebrated its one year anniversary in the building! It marked the end of the Project Remarkable Campaign and established our next two year capital campaign called Exponential. New Hope has a desire to be debt free, so the goal of this campaign is to pay off the mortgage on our building. Phase three includes plans to expand the uses for our land to include recreational areas that can be used for ministry events and also for the community.

“One person gives freely, yet gains even more. Another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” -Proverbs 11:24-25

How much do I give?
Many times we tend to look at the size of the gift or the goodness of the cause. But Jesus measured generosity by a different standard: the condition of the giver’s heart. The best place to begin is by giving 10 percent of your income, which was modeled for us in the Old Testament. Some may want to start with more or less, but it's often best to begin with a set percentage on a regular basis.
Key things to do before giving:
- Ask God for direction.
- Choose a percentage and commit to it.
-Remember everything you have belongs to God—the act of giving is simply offering back to God what is already his.
- What is the best way to give?
-We believe that online giving is the easiest and most cost efficient way to give. It's automatic, secure, and immediately reflects in your giving record.
Can I designate my giving to a specific fund or ministry?
Currently we have a General Fund for ministry expenses and Project Remarkable for our building expenses. We ask you to fund New Hope through either of those two funds. The church staff and board carefully consider how our funds will be distributed among our ministries in a way that keeps our mission and most important values at the forefront. If you would like to support a specific ministry, its important you designate it; if not designated, gifts will be attributed to the general fund. How can I receive offering envelopes? Envelopes are not necessary when giving with a check; checks can simply be dropped in offering and we’ll make sure it’s matched to your account. If you want to receive offering envelopes, please contact us with your request and address.
Do you accept debit cards and credit cards?
Used responsibly, debit cards are an efficient tool for payments and purchases. Many people utilize them in place of checks or cash throughout the month. At this time we cannot exclude the use of all credit cards from our system, however we strongly discourage those who have ongoing credit card debt from exercising this option.
