Manna: Bread of Life
Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scripture:
The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; this was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes."?
-- Matthew 21:42
“Our mission at New Hope is to anchor our mind, body and spirit in the love of Jesus Christ through worship, service and community outreach to all of God’s children.”
A HistoryIn January of 2010 a group of Christians seeking and searching gathered for a weekly Bible Study at Hillcrest Restaurant in Littlestown, PA. The group met on Sunday evenings for worship, study and fellowship.
In June of that same year the group now known as New Hope Faith Community gathered for its first Sunday morning worship service. Outdoor worship services were held that summer and in September we began meeting for Worship and Sunday School at the Littlestown High School.
In December of 2013 New Hope Faith Community moved in the former Brushtown Fire Company located at 33 Sunday Drive in Hanover. Here we worship, serve, learn and strengthen the bonds of fellowship.
Crossways Bible Study will resume on Tuesday, September 5 at 7:00 p.m.

Eating and Drinking ChristBible Verses (RcV)
Rev 22:1 And he showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb in the middle of its street.
(2) And on this side and on that side of the river was the tree of life...
Words of Ministry
Every day we must eat and drink. The same is true with our spiritual life. In the Bible there are the river of life and the tree of life. The river of life is for our drinking, and the tree of life is for our eating. The river of life is a picture of Christ as the Spirit of life, and the tree of life is a picture of Christ as the supply of life to man in the form of food. God has no intention for us to worship Him in a religious way [like prostrating ourselves, or performing some rituals]. His intention is that we would take in Christ as food and drink. By enjoying our God as food and drink, Christ as the Spirit and life comes into us.
When the divine life comes into us, we are regenerated; we have God's life, and we become God's sons. To be a Christian is not a matter of fulfilling certain religious obligations or reforming our behavior. [If you are a monkey, you cannot become human by reforming yourself. The only way to be human is to be born with a life from human parents]. In the same way, we do not become sons of God by doing anything, but by receiving God's life into us.
Day by day as we eat and drink of Christ, we will grow in the divine life. In this way we will be a people who are filled with God and will eventually express God in our living. This is the meaning of the Christian life.Bible Verse Reference
