Rear Entrance to Fire Station #3
On the Lord's Day 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 the worship of God at New Hope, feel free to review the bulletins from our worship services
, which we make available online each week.
Following the conclusion of our worship service at about 11:00 a.m., and then a half-hour break for refreshments, the congregation reconvenes for a 30-minute discussion of that morning's sermon led by one of the Pastors. The sermon discussion provides an open forum for all to ask questions, make observations, and offer further suggestions for applying the truth to our daily lives.
Our sermon discussion begins with the Pastor leading a brief review of the sermon with our 10-14 year olds (known as our "Gallery" kids), who sit in the front row of the auditorium in order to be readily accessible for that gentle pastoral interrogation!
We meet again on the Lord's Day at Fire Station #3 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. for a time of further teaching and singing. Past evening studies include 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 Lord's Day of each month, our Evening Fellowship focuses on singing hymns and songs, both old and new. We spend the evening learning songs that are new to us, as well as taking up familiar favorites.
Monthly Congregational Dinner
On the first Lord's Day of each month, we have a congregational dinner following the sermon discussion. Visitors are encouraged to enjoy dinner with us; there's always plenty of food to go around.
Monthly 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 time together is encouragement, accountability, and thereby a closer walk with each other in the Lord.
