Our theme for the New Year is “New Hope 2023: Bearing Fruit and Growing”, based on our current series in the Book of Colossians, in which Paul tells the Colossians that the gospel is “bearing fruit and growing” in Colossae as it was all over the world. Our prayer for 2023 is that the gospel will bear fruit and grow in the lives of all the families and individuals here at New Hope—that you individually and that we as a church family together will grow and bear much fruit in the New Year. Will you join us in making that your goal? Will you pray that the gospel would grow and bear fruit in us? Will you commit to seeking to grow and bear much fruit yourself? Will you resolve to make that a priority in the New Year? What steps will you take? Let us commit ourselves together and see what the Lord will do!
