A Great Day in the Lord!A group exceeding 200 folks gathered Sunday, August 24th for the dedication to the Lord of the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church Family Ministry Center. The new 9,000 sq. ft. facility hosted a great day of fellowship, praise and worship, and a focus on the One that made it all possible, the Lord God!
The service contained a wide variety of musical styles - hymns and praise songs, contemporary christian, and even bluegrass gospel. Music was provided by the Sounds of Hope Choir, led by Cathy Malin, Tom Malin - Soloist, Tracy Mosley and Stephanie Issette - Duet, and the "Kangaroo Gang" with Dennis Vick and Friends.
A financial presentation was given by Gary Issette to update both members and visitors on the great blessing that God has provided thus far to cover the building expenses, and the "opportunities" that are ahead. Two videos were presented, one showing New Hope "saints" from the past who had poured their lives into God's service through the ministries @ New Hope. The second video showed the building being built through a series of photos, as well as the present and future potential of reaching the next generation; reaching Wilson and the World for Jesus Christ!
A great message entitled "God is Good, All the Time" was presented by Pastor Steve Stephenson. This is our "unofficial motto" and was the perfect sermon to describe just how good God has been to New Hope!
A Prayer of dedication was given by Pastor Steve following the invitation, to "give the building back to the Lord" and for His Service!
"God is Good, All the Time" and He has certainly poured out His mighty blessings to New Hope Missionary Baptist Church over the past few years, sending the "seeds" necessary to turn "vision" into reality in the form of a beautiful new Multi-purpose building, dedicated to many years of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
To God be the Glory, and may His name be ever praised at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church!

Praise the Lord! It's wonderful to see how God is Blessing the people of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church through their Pastor, new people who have become members and the core group of people who have been members for years as well as their families before them. May God continue to Bless you all that His name be Praised and Glorified. Amen!

What a glorious day in the Lord, surely the presence of the Lord was with us on this day. I thank God for His blessings upon His children here at New Hope. New Hope is a great church because your love for one another is great and your devotion to Almighty God is the number one priority in your life. Let me encourage you to pray for one another, encourage one another and support one another as we strive to "share Jesus Christ with Wilson and the World." Jer 29:11 (NIV)says, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Thank you for all you do and may God continue to bless you and our future together! Blessings and Love, Pastor Steve
