New Hope Church exists to help all people become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. As part of the mission, we are dedicated to becoming a racially and culturally unified church, valuing everyone without exception. During the month of February, our country celebrates Black History Month. In our efforts to create an environment that honors all of God's people, we will highlight opportunities for our church community to engage in Black History Month.
All of the resources are meant to be a place to start a conversation. Specifically, a conversation about race in the United States.
Paul tells us in Ephesians 2, “Therefore, if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others.”
You only have to look around you to see that God enjoys diversity. We have so much to offer each other; let’s celebrate that together.
