Christmas Message from Pastor Virgil Humes
Dear New Hope Family and Friends,
At this special and sacred time of the year, I wish to extend to you and your loved ones Christmas greetings and best wishes for the New Year. While we recall difficult times and frustrations over the past year, we continue with faith, love, joy and hope, for the remainder of 2022 and 2023.
Thank you for the generosity of your gifts given to the Lord, as they are modeled upon what the Three Kings presented to the newborn King, Jesus, the Christ.
The talent you share from ministering at church to making others feel Christ’s compassion and love by more than 25 outreach projects (from serving recently released incarcerated prisoners, purchasing coats/hats/gloves for children, giving cash gifts to families to soften the inflation impact to serving dinner and sponsoring Bingo games at Taylor Commons Senior Apartments) bringing just a smile and hope to many, is impressive. All you offer in support and sustenance of our Church, as well as shaping its future is indeed a blessing to all.
At “this most wonderful time of the year” may you and your loved ones find joy and fulfillment as surely did Joseph and Mary. Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace and love of Christ to all people.
Pastor Virgil Humes
