Special note from the pastor Jim.

"We are grateful for the Lords call to serve His Church in the Lubbock area. I am especially delighted by the "City Church" Focus of "Pray Lubbock" Ministry. We at New hope work hard to fulfill the assignment the Lord has given us as a local church. With that commitment we are aware that no one congregation can meet the needs of a city. As the "City Church" works together in prayer and outreach, the Lord Jesus will meet the needs of our Community."

God Bless
