Santa telling the story of Jesus Birth!

Tonight, we had our Christmas Fellowship Dinner. We had a visit from Santa and he read the Christmas story with an appearance from Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus. We had (at last count) 96 in attendance! Praise the Lord!

Today we honored Ayo, one of our Nigerian International Students at Eastern Illinois University for graduating with her Master's Degree Yesterday! We are very proud of her and wish her the best of luck and God's guidance and protection over her!

GOD is Good, all the time; and all the time, GOD is Good!

A beautiful Chrismon Service!

Well, well, well......another one of our New Hope Family is famous. Allyson Turner, who performs for the E.I.U. flag Corp was on the front page of the Daily Eastern News performing during the Eastern Football game!

One of our New Hope family, Sherry Strode showing off her flower pot at CCAR Industries! Beautiful!

This past Sunday our E.I.U. International Students treated us to wonderful special! We Love our students!

This past Sunday, New Hope welcomed 3 more members into the Church. God is on the move in New Hope!

New Hope was out at the 18th Street Fall Festival handing out free hot dogs, chips, and drinks as well as spreading the Good News yesterday! Looks like they had a blast!

What a wonderful service we had at New Hope this morning! We had the privilege of having Supt. John Lane with us, to lead in Worship along with a special service transitioning us from a Church Plant to Fellowship Status. This is a huge step in New Hope's commitment in spreading the Love of Jesus Christ. Fellowship Status enables us to have local church and denominational membership. Supt. Lane led 26 church parishioners in the membership commitment as charter members of New Hope. 3 more to come next week! Hallelujah!

Jodi Cline and her accapella group Sweet Adeline performing in the church talent show "Our Church has talent"

Kenny Smallhorn had the congregation in stitches with his stand-up comedy. In jest, he accused Pastor Eric of stealing the name New Hope from Star Wars, and suggested we not call the Sanctuary the "Death Star" LOL

Sandy Smallhorn performing a skit and magic show during our Church talent show today. She had the kids in aww!

Good Luck and We Love You! Friends are Friends Forever if the Lord is Lord of them!

Our congregation praying God's love, guidance and direction over our Students as they prepare for the next steps in their lives!
