Pastor's Update

Men of God

My hope is that this blog finds your week going well!!  We at New Hope are in the process of studying the life of God's church and how we can best honor Him in all that we do as individuals and as His church.  This upcoming Sunday will be a special focus on the life of God's men leading God's people.  1 Timothy 3:1-7 presents a tall list of expectations, one that makes me want to reluctantly turn down the call upon my life to lead my family and to be a leader in God's church.  However,  Proverbs 3:5-6 gives great insight for not only God-fearing men, but for all believers in Christ.  These verses tell us to "trust in the Lord with all of our hearts, and not to trust in our own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path."  What great encouragement!!  I'm glad that my success in leading rests on God!  In trusting God with my life and leadership, I can relax and enjoy the abundant life only He can give (John 10:10)!!  Please come and join us for worship and receive the love of God through His people!!

Baptisms at New Hope!!

Hi everybody!!     I hope your week is going well!  We at New Hope are celebrating!  Two people attending our church were baptized this past Sunday night at Island Pond Baptist Church in Hampstead, NH!!  I had the privilege of participating as the baptizer.  We had a wonderful time of worship, and the hosting pastor, Jim Wells,  gave me the privilege of preaching during the service.  God gave me a message out of Isaiah 55.  God beckons for all who are willing to come to Him and listen, and they, as a result, will become part of a living covenant with God.  In other words, whoever believes what the Bible says, and prays, asking God for the forgiveness of sins and for Christ to save them, he or she becomes a child of God (John 1:12).  In exchange for becoming a believer in Christ, you will experience a life that is abundant (John 10:10) with the presence of God within you.  Won't you put your trust in Him today!!  If you do, give me a call, and let's talk about your new walk with God!!  603-345-7203 Pastor Bob

Finding Hope in Your Future

Hi everybody!!       I hope all is well with you and your family!  I was just thinking about how people are making it in our world today.  With all of the chaos in numerous countries around the world and the natural disasters that are taking place all around us, it seems that there is no hope for tomorrow.  Ah, but there is hope for those who believe in God and that His encouragement for all of life's experiences can be found in the Bible.  The words of Psalm 1 are most encouraging.  The Psalmist says:   1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night.  3 He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. (NKJV)       These words provide hope for everyone who delights in living for God and being obedient to His word.  Such hope begins by asking God to forgive you of your sin and allowing Him to change your life.  God forgives you of your sin, when you ask His Son Jesus to come into your heart.  Pray and ask Jesus to come into your heart today, and He will.  If you live within a reasonable distance of our church, please come and visit with us!  We would love to help you and your family deal with the difficulty of life.  God bless you!!  Pastor Bob
