Christmas Shoe Boxes For Armenia
Over 20 years ago, a vision was cast to respond to the great needs of the people of Armenia and across these two decades, our conferences have been richly blessed in partnership with Christians in Armenia, the oldest Christian nation in the world. Jesus sent Thaddeus and Batholomew to carry the Good News of the Gospel to the people of Armenia.
You can be directly involved in this unique mission of North Carolina United Methodists with Christians in Armenia. You are invited to prepare Christmas boxes in plastic shoe boxes. For many children in refugee communities located in the Kashatagh District, this is the only Christmas gift they will receive. For some of them, this will be the first toy they have ever received. Though these boxes may seem like a small gift, they will carry the priceless love of Christ. Children who receive these boxes will know that they have been remembered and loved.
To find box contents and packing instructions, please see AGAPE Christmas Box Ministry. Please bring the Shoe Boxes to Church before September 20th as they will be collected the last two weekends in September for shipment to Armenia in time for Christmas.

Vacation Bible School — 2013
This year the Vacation Bible School (VBS) theme at New Hope United Methodist Church was Athens – Paul's Dangerous Journey to Share the Truth. Each day, during the week of June 17th through June 21st children and adults traveled back in time to the beautiful Grecian coast of ancient Athens! We met Apostle Paul on his second missionary journey and heard about his experiences. Families became part of history as they saw, heard, touched, and even tasted what it was like to live in ancient Athens. Read More >>

An Update from Mozart Adevu
I bring you greetings in this season of Easter.
I hope you and your families are doing great as we celebrate the life of the Risen Lord, who has exemplified to us His great love and kindness by His sacrifices. Our Lord certainly falls into step beside us daily just as He did to the two disciples journeying to Emmaus the very evening His tomb was discovered empty. We should each remember this especially over this period and indeed always in order to keep Him as our best companion on whom we focus our thoughts daily.
I am happy to share with you the joys of Sanda Manack, a small very remote village of about 450 people in the northern province of Sierra Leone. READ MORE >>
Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who will be in service to the needs of people in the
community of New Hope and beyond. Enter to worship – – Depart to serve.
