Christmas Plant Sponsorship Signup
We invite you to share in the joy of bringing beauty to the narthex and sanctuary for our Advent and Christmas season. Kathy Cook has, in her creative and worshipful way, mapped out a stunning layout for greenery and flowers. By ordering one or more of the plants listed here, you can participate in this means of service and worship and plan to take it with you to its forever home after the holidays.
Sign your name on the list in the narthex. Or text Kathy directly. Kathy’s cell: 352-516- 1803. Payment can be made to her personally or dropped off at the church. If by check, please put Kathy’s name in the payee line.

Save the date! The New Hope Christmas Party is making a return this year! We'll celebrate together on Sunday, December 11th, at 6pm. There will be a table decorating contest and other forms of merriment! More details TBA.
12/17: Cookie + Ornament Exchange Party
Our annual Ladies' Cookie & Ornament Exchange Party will take place at the Renick's home on Saturday, December 17th, at 2pm. Bring 3 dozen cookies and a wrapped ornament for the exchange! See Natalie for more info.
For the second year, we will have a crew and float in the Mount Dora Christmas Parade on Saturday morning, December 3rd, the first day of the Living Nativity. We will be handing out invite cards and candy, so we need toss-safe goodies to throw! Bring them to the office anytime before Dec. 2nd. See Lindsey Matulia for more info.
For our Advent reading this year, we will go through "The Dawning of Indestructible Joy" by John Piper. Pick your physical copy up in the narthex or get the free PDF here. There are 25 daily readings, beginning Dec. 1st and concluding Christmas Day. (Our Advent sermons will also be taken from selections from these readings.)
