Brothers and sisters in Christ,
      Grace and peace to you in the name of our risen Savior, Jesus Christ
      At this time, we are still experiencing the restrictions and safeguards for safety recommended by the government and medical officials.   Rest assured that our faith in Jesus Christ will get us through this pandemic.  As a result, your church council has implemented the following changes to our regular activities at New Hope Lutheran Church:
· All church services have been cancelled until at least two weeks after the beginning of phase three directed by Governor Cooper.  However, you can view Pastor Mark Ryman for virtual worship on Facebook under St. Marks New Hope Lutheran Parish.  Upon completion, it will be posted on this website.
· All church gatherings and activities have been cancelled through October, 2020. This includes Lutheran Men, Women’s circles, Wednesday evening prayer service, Thursday Bible study, Goodtimer’s, and choir/handbell practice.
· During this time if you have need for pastor care or emergencies, please call James Brown and he will make arrangements for you to receive assistance.
.  The church will continue to send out its weekly email news and weekly phone call.   The church office is open and the administrative assistant is on site to receive phone and email messages during this time. 
· New Hope asks that you place your offering in an envelope and mail it to the church office. The offering will be counted weekly by the offering counters and the mail checked daily.
· The church will be sanitarily cleaned before we resume church services.
· I urge you to check on one another by phone or email and remain indoors as much as possible. If you get sick, please see a doctor.
   Above all, rest assured in the comfort of Jesus regardless of the outcome of the next few weeks. The website for the church can be found  The Facebook page for the church can be found The videos will remain on the website and on Facebook after so they can be watched at a later time. I know this is an unusual time. Yet, we will see the glory of God carry us forward. We all can rest in the promises of Jesus Christ, as sinners saved by grace.
