When my family and I moved into the area, I started to visit the local churches. When I attended New Hope I figured it would be very much like the other churches that I had visited. I feel that all the churches I attended were very nice, but New Hope definitely stood out for me. The people were much more than just a ""Hi, thank you for coming today"" they really made me feel welcomed. Like they truly waned to get to know me. Till New Hope I have never liked, let alone enjoyed the music part of Church. To be honest... I have always wanted to show up to church late to miss the singing part - New Hope has changed that greatly for me. I now look forward to sing praise. As for the teachings of Pastor Robert...It's the icing on the cake. I can relate to the things he says, and he and his wife, Tammy, are so down to earth and easy to talk to. They make you feel as if you've been long time friends. Most importantly, Pastor Robert really gets me thinking about my relationship with God. I feel so motivated after each and every service- it would be great not to leave. If you are looking for a family feeling church - you can stop looking when you walk in the door. I did.
