Public Worship

firestationbackRear Entrance to Fire Station #3On Sundays we gather for worship, including the Lord's Supper, at 9:30 a.m. at Fire Station #3 in the City of Fairfax. To learn more about our worship services, feel free to peruse our recent bulletins. A nursery supervised by New Hope members is available for little ones throughout the morning.

Sermon discussion
Following the conclusion of our worship service at around 11:00 a.m., and then a break for refreshments, the congregation reconvenes for a discussion of that morning's sermon led by the Pastor who preached. The sermon discussion provides an open forum for people to ask questions, make observations, and offer further suggestions for applying the truth to our daily lives. The discussion always begins with a brief review of the main points of the sermon with our 10-to-14-year-olds, who take their seats in the front row in order to be readily accessible for some gentle pastoral interrogation!

Opportunities for children
During the sermon discussion, opportunities are provided for children of other ages to gather under the leadership of New Hope officers for separate meetings in break-out rooms around the main hall. Our 5-to-6-year-olds gather in one room, 7-to-9-year-olds in another, and high school students in another.

Evening Fellowship

We meet again on Sunday evenings at the Fire Station from 5:30-6:30 p.m. for a time of further teaching and singing. Past evening studies have included an exposition of Paul's letter to the Colossians, reflections on John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, an exploration of the writings of Martin Luther, and a study of the Bible's teaching concerning missions.

Monthly Music Night
On the first Sunday of each month, we devote our whole Evening Fellowship to singing together. We take up a mix of newer selections and familiar favorites.

Monthly Meals

Congregational dinner
On the first Sunday of each month, we have a congregational dinner following the morning sermon discussion. Visitors are encouraged to stay and enjoy the meal with us; there's always plenty of food to go around.

Breakfast meetings
The men of the church gather for breakfast on the second Saturday of each month from 8:00-9:30 a.m. at Providence House; the women gather at the same time and place on the third Saturday. The goal of our breakfast gatherings is to encourage one another in our walks with the Lord.
