Welcome to New Hope online! We are so glad to see you here. With everything going on regarding COVID-19 we want to let you know about some changes we are making here at New Hope. As a church we are committed to the safety and protection of our members/guests and honoring our local and national leadership, so until further notice our Sunday experiences will be livestreamed right here at 11:15am. The best way to stay connected with us as we navigate updates and information is by following us on social media.
Here’s what you can do to help:
- Pray for our community and those directly affected by COVID-19. Pray for the health care workers who are treating the sick and our public health administrators making difficult decisions. Pray that God would protect our community from further spread of the virus.
- Reflect Christ. In these anxious days, the church (all of us) can shine as a light of hope, care, faith patience and prudence. We can demonstrate to the world how our faith provides true assurance against worry and fear.
- Practice recommended personal hygiene. Wash your hands frequently and stay home if you are sick.
According to the CDC, here are some steps we can all take:
- If you are high risk, such as older adults and those with underlying chronic medical conditions-- avoid crowds as much as possible
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- Stay home if you are sick
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing)
You can find more information about COVID-19 from the Georgia Department of Public Health.
While we exercise wisdom in keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe, we know that divine health and protection is from Jesus. Let’s continue to trust in His promises of protection in Psalm 91 for ourselves, our families, and all those who are affected by illness and pray that the virus will be contained and conquered.
2 Timothy 1:7
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.”
