There are three great opportunities to be present and serve in Vandalia and Butler Township. Look for more information and opportunities to come!
National Day of Prayer, Prayer Breakfast
For 65 years Christians around the country have set aside a day to intentionally pray for the nation in which we live. This year’s National Day of Prayer is May 5, and you are invited to the Vandalia Prayer Breakfast hosted by Christian Life Center at the First Baptist Church of Vandalia’s Hangar located at 140 Elva Ct. The Prayer Breakfast is from 7:15-8:30 and you can register at http://clcdayton.com/registration. If you are interested in traveling with others from New Hope, let us know you’re signing up for this below.
This is not only a great chance to gather with other Christians and pray for the United States, but it is also an opportunity to join with other churches in the area. Let’s join our brothers and sisters in seeking God’s kingdom together!
Picnic at Helke Park
We’re taking our Sunday Lunches out of doors. Sunday, May 15, we will be meeting for hot dogs and fun at Helke Park Shelter #2 from 2-5 p.m. This will be a great time of fellowship and fun, and a wonderful opportunity to invite a neighbor to come hangout and meet the people of New Hope. Talk to Jenn if you’d like to bring a side or help with the food. We’ll be providing dogs and buns, and some dessert as well, but there may be other ways you can help.
Good News Club Sign-Up
As a part of our effort to build kingdom relationships in the neighborhood we are working with Child Evangelism Fellowship to bring the Good News Clubs back to the Vandalia-Butler school district. Our goal is to set up a Good News Club in both Helke and Demmit Elementary schools, and to do that we need volunteers who can commit to serving once a week for about 1.5–2 hours. You’ll work with the kids to present a lesson each week, and you will also get a chance to meet people from the school and parents too.
If you are interested in helping, please fill out the contact form below and let us know you’re signing up for the Good News Club, and feel free to ask any questions. We will contact you with more information. This is a great opportunity to plan the seeds of the gospel in the lives of our neighbors, and to make new connections in the neighborhood as well.
