If the Son sets you free, You are free indeed!
John 8:36


We gather for worship service at 9:30 AM Summer Worship (10:30 during the school year).
The service is also streamed live via our Facebook page. All are invited!
Come as you are:
We care about you, not what you are wearing. Feel free to wear whatever is most comfortable for church.
 Worship is simple at New Hope
It centers on the teaching and preaching of God’s Word. Music is a blend of traditional and contemporary.

Calling all Mighty Kids!  NEW to New Hope is Kids Church. What is Kids Church you ask?  Kids Church is a pre-k through 4th grade level program in place of our traditional Sunday School.  We will start upstairs in the sanctuary with our parents, after prayer we will come downstairs for the remainder of the service. This is to provide a bible-focused program that teaches our kids about the trinity, discipleship, and the importance of prayer. The 5th & 6th graders, confirmation and high school students will still meet at 9am. We are geared towards pre-k through 4th grade but 5th & 6th graders are more than welcome to join us.  Nursery services will still be available for 0-4 year-olds.

Come join us for a family fun event on Sunday September 12 @ 9am to celebrate Rally Sunday and to kick off our NEW Kids Church.  For any questions regarding Mighty Kids contact Darcy @ (701) 202-7264 or to pre-register contact Gail @ (701)269-0589. Hope to see you there!


Ministries of New  Hope

We have several different ministries for you and your family! We invite you to come experience and learn more about the new hope we have in Jesus.

Children’s Ministries

Sunday Education Hour
(Starting September 12)

Kids Church is a children’s sermon downstairs during the standard sermon Sunday mornings after prayer for kids Pre-k through 4th grade (5th & 6th welcome to join). We will use the curriculum Grow Kids. The main focus is discipleship with a new theme every month. 

Wednesday Nights
All children are welcome and invited to join!

Youth Ministries

Confirmation class meets Sunday mornings at 9am for students in 7th and 8th grade. They study a two-year program covering key doctrinal points and beliefs held by the AFLC, Luther’s Small Catechism and Explanation, and an overview of the Bible itself, to gain a strong grasp on the foundational truths of our faith.
Senior High
High schoolers meet on Sunday mornings to fellowship, worship, and dig into Scripture. Last year we began working our way through Proverbs, an Old Testament book rich with observations and wisdom for living our lives. In the past, we completed one series on 1 Corinthians and another on different Christian denominations, as well as a study that looked at how science actually supports the existence of God.
Youth Group

7th-12th grade students meet every Wednesday at 6:30pm for worship, Bible Study, fellowship, and encountering God. The summer schedule varies, so please watch the calendar for any changes! We have most recently done a study titled “Gender Wars,” which tackled what the Bible really says about gender roles, LGBTQ+ issues, and just why relationships are so hard, whether romance or friendship. In the past, we’ve studied the New Testament book of James, various current and hot-button issues, and a series dedicated to apologetics (defense of the faith).

Our mission is to equip youth to know God deeply, share new hope in Christ, and lead their generation to Jesus!

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father, who is in Heaven.” -Matthew 5:14-16

This is our theme verse. We are all called to be God’s light and show His love to everyone around the world. We are called to go and spread the Gospel, making disciples, to the ends of the world. Our goal is to equip teens to do just that, to be His light to ends of the earth!
