Through The Fire: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON FRIENDSHIP
If you tried to define “friendship” based only on what you see on Instagram, you might think friendship was all about group hugs, selfies with your bestie, or tagging each other in your favorite memes. But real friendship isn’t so picture perfect. In this 4-week series, we’ll challenge students to build the kind of friendships that go beyond the surface – the kinds of friendships we’ll need when times get tough. We’ll look at three key friendships as Scripture, as well as the friendship God offers us through Jesus, as we help teenagers see that Godly friendships can shape us, heal us, and purify us – especially during difficult times.

Father and Son(13 yrs and older) Conquer Series: The Battle Plan For Purity

Pornography is an epidemic that has its tentacles everywhere, and it’s hitting men, women, and families of all ages and stages, all around the globe.  Check out the latest alarming statistics:

   -90% of children ages 8-16 have seen online pornography

   -Children ages 12-17 are the largest group of Internet porn consumers 

-74% of adult men say they use porn at least once a month

For our young men especially, porn can lead to significant problems in later life, such as intimacy issues with a future spouse, divorce, lost productivity, lost employment, affairs, acting out sexually and so much more.  To break the porn habit and/or to stay completely free from its bondage, a complete renewal of the mind is required and the Conquer Series was created to do just that.  

The Conquer Series is packed with over 5 hours of powerful teaching told through cinematic parables and offers Bible-based strategies to conquer porn.  We owe it to ourselves, our family, and to our future generations to break the hold of porn and walk in the freedom that only Jesus Christ provides.

New Hope Fellowship is offering a Father and Son(13 yrs and older) Conquer Series this summer led by Nick Tornabene and Cameron Wiegartz on the following dates from 6:30pm-8:30pm…..

HELP NEEDED: New Hope does not hire anyone to do our landscaping everything is done on a volunteer basis.  Because of that we need help weeding our flower beds & mowing the lawn. If interested in helping there will be a calendar out front to put your name on a date that you can help weed or mow. Questions – contact Paul Williams (cffpmw@yahoo.com).

Hospitality Ministry:  If you like to help people feel the love of Jesus, there’s a place for you on the Hospitality Ministry. The Hospitality Ministry is a fun and yet low-key way to get connected. The team will help arrange for meals for church families when needed (birth of baby, death of loved one, health crisis, etc.)  Other areas the team will help out in will be church functions that would include a meal.  If this sounds like a way that you could serve others while showing the love of Jesus please call the church at 815-561-8400 or Megan. Also, if you know someone in church that needs a meal please contact the church office.

2019 Bible Reading Plan: If you have a computer smart phone or tablet, you can download a Bible app called You Version.  This app includes many different versions of scripture and reading plans that you can follow.  This year we’ll be encouraging you to check out one called “Word Of God Speak, we’re currently on Part 2.”  To find the plan, go to app and type in Word Of God Speak, Part 2 you version, it will bring you to the plan where you can sign up to begin your 2019 Bible Reading Plan.

Tech Team: If this is an area of interest for you we’d love to teach you how to serve in the tech booth.  Training will be provided. If interested contact Jacob.
