Welcome To Our Ministries
Here you can learn more about our church and what we do. We would love to have you

The New Hope Choir meets every Wednesday evening at 6:00 pm. to rehearse. We are always looking for new voices to enrich our worship.
Our Handbell choir has rehearsal on Sunday Mornings at 9:00 a.m. They play several Sundays throughout the year.

Children and Youth Ministries
We have a variety of fellowship activities for all our children:
Our middle and high school youth meet throughout the school year and participate in summer retreat and mission experiences.
Our younger children gather for monthly outing and mission activities such as delivering cards to shut-ins and serving a meal at our local soup kitchen. Every summer we hold Vacation Bible School for all ages.
Our children regularly participate in worship as acolytes, liturgists, and singers. Every fall they lead us in worship for Children’s Sabbath. On this special Sunday, we not only honor our children, but are asked to prayerfully consider how to love, care for, and protect all children in our world.

Feeding the Homeless at Crisis Ministries
Every third Sunday ministry teams gather to prepare and serve a meal at the local homeless shelter. We are always needing volunteers to come and share in this vital community ministry.
South Lexington School Helping Hand Ministry
Every kindergarten student in the city attends South Lexington School located on Cotton Grove Road. The school’s work is important because it sets the foundation for our children’s entire school career. It is also the neighborhood school nearest to our church.
New Hope has approved a plan for our congregation to “adopt” South Lexington School. Our goal is to lend a helping hand in their important work.
We support the children in our community in the following ways:
Full Funding of the weekend food program for food insecure children in the school.
Tutoring/Reading Buddy Program
Other Mission Support areas:
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance
Summer Mission Trips
Annual Local Mission work
