“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.

The Extraordinary Grace Needed to Shed His BloodBible Verses (RcV)
Eph 1:7 In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of offenses, according to the riches of His grace,
Heb 9:22 ...and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.
Words of Ministry
According to our concept, it would be easy for God to forgive us because He is sovereign and almighty. However, it was not that easy. The Bible says that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins... Now we need to see how it was possible for God to obtain such a sinless and all- inclusive blood. Obtaining such a blood was vastly more difficult than creating the universe. In order to create the universe, God simply had to speak (Gen. 1:3). But redemption could not take place in this way.
Consider how the Redeemer, the Lord Jesus, was conceived. There was the need for the Holy Spirit to contact the virgin Mary. We cannot say how the Holy Spirit conceived the Redeemer within the womb of the virgin. For this, the riches of God's grace were required. Eventually, after working as a carpenter, He came forth to begin His ministry. Although He was concerned for sinners, they opposed Him, persecuted Him, and plotted to kill Him. Betrayed by one of His Apostles, He was arrested. He was tried. Then He was nailed to the cross and hung there for six hours. Then He was buried, resurrected, and ascended into heaven to receive repentance and forgiveness. What grace was needed for all this! Because of the riches of God's grace, we are able to repent and receive forgiveness of sins. How limitless and immeasurable is God's grace!
