Hebrews Initiative

Join us for the Hebrews Initiative every Sunday at 10:30AM beginning in September until November!

What is the Hebrews Initiative?

  • A 12-week experience during which a coalition of willing churches and groups will learn and embrace the principles and practices revealed in the Book of Hebrews
  • The goal is to inspire 200,000 small group members to live out their faith in a post-Christian era

Where and when will it occur?

In churches and groups worldwide in Fall 2015.

Why join the Hebrews Initiative?

  • The church of this generation was planted by God to be salt and light (Matt. 5:13 – 16) to a post-Christian people/culture.
  • The church is drifting away from the centrality of Christ and therefore is struggling to be salt and light (Hebrews 2:1).
  • The church must be redirected back to the superiority and centrality of Christ, the call to suffer for the cause of Christ, and be reminded that, no matter what the situation, we find rest in Christ.

Who is invited to join?

  • Any church or group that believes that the church is to affect the culture through the transformational power of the gospel
  • Any church or group that holds to the fact that individual believers living and sharing the gospel transforms lives which ultimately transforms culture.
  • Any church or group that longs to embrace Christ as Lord and in so doing be spiritually revitalized.

How do we get involved?

    • Churches can do a church-wide campaign. Free campaign helps are available when you join.
    • Small Groups pastors can alert their groups that the initiative is taking place and that their church applauds any group that wants to join the movement.
    • An individual group that hears about the initiative can register to be involved online.
    • A church’s small group point person can lead every group to be involved in the initiative

Review or order Bible Study Books for your group(s).

Why study the book of Hebrews?

Hebrews is a book for our time:

  • It was written to a persecuted people.
  • It was written for a church struggling to remain passionate about the gospel.
  • It elevates the superiority of Christ.
  • It reminds struggling believers that they have an advocate and brother in Jesus.
  • It urges believers to endure in the faith until Christ returns because He is returning.

New Hope will host our 14th Marriage Retreat at the Embassy Suites in Arcadia, CA on the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, October 24th-25th

Our Presenters, Casey and Meghan Caston of Marriage365,  are looking forward to joining us for a fun, informative, interactive weekend of being renewed and refreshed in our marriage vows.  You can check out their website at www.marriage365.org .

From their website Bio: “Between both sets of our parents, there are 11 marriages and 8 of them have ended in divorce.  You’d think we would be the harshest critics of marriage, since all we saw was the pain and brokenness in our parent’s marriages….We are continually faced with the challenges of making our marriage a priority.”

The prices this year are: 

  • $210.00 per couple for an overnight stay in a King Suite, which of course includes Saturday evening Manager’s Reception and Sunday Breakfast and conference materials 
  • An additional cost of $150.00 if you’d like to include a stay Friday night which includes Manager’s Reception for Friday and Saturday Breakfast 
  • $75.00 per couple if you would like to join us just for the conference sessions only, space permitting. 
  • Payment is due before September 25th so that we can turn in our rooming list to Embassy in a timely matter.  After September 25th the cost increases to $225.00 per couple.

Epic Story July 19 – August 23

Come participate in the Epic Story each Sunday between now and August 23 at New Hope!

The Epic Story, the mind-boggling metanarrative of the Gospel, points us to the reality that God not only loves us, but takes it to another level by choosing to be in relationship with you and me.  It talks about the Trinity, the Author of the Epic Story, giving us the freedom to make meaningful choices to write into our story.  It points to the sacred redemption of our Lord and how when we make hurtful and heart-breaking decisions, it’s not the end of our story nor the sum of our identity.  It also urges us to choose relationship with the Father; to  walk and abide with Jesus which gives meaning to the here-and-now, a redemptive lens to view our suffering and the hopeful expectation for The End of our stories.
