O that my ways may be steadfast in keeping your statutes! Then I shall not be put to shame, having my eyes fixed on all your commandments. I will praise you with an upright heart, when I learn your righteous ordinances. All Together: I will observe your statutes; do not utterly forsake me.

Here is some helpful information as you join us in worship today: All who worship here are equals in the sight of God, regardless of race, age, gender, physical disability or religious affiliation. Communion, when celebrated, is open to all who profess Christ as Lord and Savior, whether affiliated with this church or not. Children may partake of Communion as well, if parents approve. A nursery is available during the service; please see a greeter for directions. (This is for infants and children up to 3 years of age.) Handicap-accessible restrooms are located off the narthex (main foyer) and adjacent to the entrance lobby in the Fellowship Hall/Gym. Please complete the tear-off attendance slip attached to the bulletin and drop it in the offering plate so we will have a record of your visit with us today. Thank you for remembering to silence your cell phone during the service. We ask that there be no food or beverages in the sanctuary, please. If you arrived as a visitor we hope that you leave as a friend and worship with us often! New Hope Church exists to: Glorify God in worship and rejoice in our life together; Share the Good News of the Gospel in word and deed; Reach as many as we can with the saving love of Jesus; Help each person grow toward Christian maturity, and find their place of service in the church and in the world.

Mens and Womens Ministries Grow Your Faith

New Hope is seeking to form a Womens Small Group based on the Cumberland Presbyterian Womens Ministry (CPWM). Elder Mary Thompson has been organizing this. Our purpose will be to accept and share the love and joy of Jesus Christ through the ministry of women in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. We seek to do this as we pray, study God's Word, and reach out to others through mission, service, encouragement and fellowship. This goal will be accomplished through a diversity of ministries. The CPWM was once a vital part of New Hope and needs to be so again. Ladies, please let us know if you would be interested in this ministry and what time would be better for you by completing the tear-off portion of todays bulletin. As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. - Proverbs 27:17 New Hope is seeking men interested in forming a vibrant Mens Ministry within the church. The Men's Ministry will be a time for men to come together for fellowship, support and building relationships as we go through our Christian journey. We will discuss ways to help with needs inside and outside our church, whether through handyman type projects or whatever needs may arise. We will become the focal planning team for events that the men organize such as the Mothers Day Brunch and Valentines banquet. Church buildings and grounds maintenance (mowing) will also be a focus. Most importantly, through this ministry, we can build on having a better relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. Men, if you are interested in strengthening your walk with Christ, please let us know your level of interest in this ministry by completing the tear-off portion of todays bulletin.

Ministries/Activities Within Our Church

After dinner we always have entertainment for our adults and we will have a movie with popcorn for our children in the room where they have Children's Church. We invite everyone to come out and bring friends for a great time of food and fellowship. Please let the staff know if a nursery is needed. Session Meeting the Church Session of Elders will meet this Tuesday evening, February 18 at 6:30 here at the church for the reular monthly meeting.

The Gospel Lesson

When Jesus announced his plan to invite everyone into the Kingdom of Peace, Love, and Life Everlasting he chose people one or two at a time to follow him on a mission that will share the salvation message with everyone. He started with a discipleship training course. This Sundays Scripture, Matthew 5:21-37, is an essential part of that training. He says there is no real salvation without holiness -- right living. And right living is not just obeying a set of rules and regulations. The rules become principles and they are written not only in stone, but on the hearts of those who love Jesus. Tell the world about Jesus yes, we do that. But if the basic principles for right living do not become the second nature for the way you live your life, the message will be compromised. It becomes only empty talk. These words from the Bible this Sunday are Wonderful Words of Life. Matthew 5:21-37 New International Version (NIV) Murder 21 You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, You shall not murder,[a] and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment. 22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister[b][c] will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, Raca,[d] is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, You fool! will be in danger of the fire of hell. 23 Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift. 25 Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. 26 Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny. Adultery 27 You have heard that it was said, You shall not commit adultery.[e] 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for

you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell. Divorce 31 It has been said, Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.[f] 32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery. Oaths 33 Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made. 34 But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is Gods throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37 All you need to say is simply Yes or No; anything beyond this comes from the evil one. [g] Footnotes: a. Matthew 5:21, Exodus 20:13 b. Matthew 5:22: The Greek word for brother or sister (adelphos) refers here to a fellow disciple, whether man or woman; also in verse 23. c.
