1st Sunday of Advent: HOPE

Pastor Russ Kane

Sunday, November 28 is the first Sunday of Advent. Pastor Russ explores how hope doesn't just look ahead, but also looks at the past and affirms "Nothing was wasted. Everything played a part."


The sermon is based on scripture from Matthew 1:1-17.

 - Scripture: Corinthians 3:12

The Work of Hope

Hope is hard and requires work, but we can do hard things.

Russ Kane

Lead Pastor

I'm Pastor Russ Kane and I've had the privilege of being Senior Pastor at New Hope for more than 20 years. I have found New Hope to be a vibrant and caring congregation that truly wants to make a difference in this world. We are low on rules and religious jargon, and high on inclusion and grace. New Hope has been a place of new beginnings for many, perhaps it will be a new beginning for you.

Jordan Warntjes

Associate Pastor

I'm Pastor Jordan Warntjes and I've had the joy to serve at New Hope for 7 years. Our congregation is one of the most encouraging and caring groups of people I have encountered in ministry. What I love most about New Hope is their courage to love, seek justice, and to be inclusive to those who have been burned by church. If that resonates with you, then we might be home for you.
