For many, HOME is something that stirs memories—both good and bad. It is a place where strong relationships, intentional nurture and meaningful community are sought and valued.
In today’s times, people want Family³, the dimensional portrait that the Bible presents for the home and for the church in stage, season and scope. Family³ creates deliberate space and times and where genuine love, nourishing peace and interactive community abound. Family³ is not a destination: instead, it is an intentional journey where homes, marriages and people receive and give empowering nurture, positive encouragement and constructive affirmation.
New Hope Presbyterian Church is a reformed, mission-centric Family³ of believers in Jesus Christ who attempt to live out their Christian lives in tangible ways that reflect a deep love for God and for people, for life-giving peace and for life-transforming mission. We are not a “perfect” church; instead, we strive in our brokenness to be a Family³ spiritual community that honors God and attempts to build up people in a family-nurturing environment.
Family³ reminds us that regardless of your stage in marriage (unmarried, married, post-married), season in life (young, mid-life, senior) or scope of relationships (immediate family, extended family, church as a spiritual family), it is never too late to call Family³ and New Hope Presbyterian Church your home.
