In this day and age, the world is more connected than ever. From television, to cell phones and the world wide web, it’s nearly impossible to not be up-to-date on the latest happenings throughout the globe. But as Christians, the challenge is getting connected and staying connected with God. All the tools are there for us at church, but one congregation in Adel is going the extra mile to make sure members can stay not only connected with God, but with the rest of the Christian community.
My New Hope!
Picture this: one spot to access and interact with the entire congregation, to post and share church-related events, and to help you stay on track with a good Christian life. With just an e-mail address and a few clicks of the computer mouse, members of New Hope Church can access this brand new way to stay current in Christ. It’s called My New Hope!
With My New Hope!, members have the chance to get involved in a few different ways. The interface is divided up into two groups with five categories each. With each breakdown comes a new way to keep current at New Hope Church.
You can join specific groups within the social media setup that can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Congregation members are free to orchestrate their own posts, including new groups or updates on events, meetings and other news within the community. Another way to get active is to select the “Ministries” tab. Through this, everyone active on My New Hope! can see what’s going on in different missions through New Hope, including missions sponsored by the church.
Want to find out when the next youth group meeting is? No problem. To truly stay in the know and keep fresh with the calendar, check out the “Events” sub-category to peruse the church’s calendar in a user-friendly interface. This section pulls directly from New Hope’s calendar, so you don’t have to do two things at once.
Speaking of convenience, with My New Hope!, you can go the extra mile all from the comfort of your own desktop. With a few clicks, you can set up such options as automatic monthly donations or one-time giving events. My New Hope! also keeps track of your donation history, allowing users to set goals for giving back and helping to go the extra mile.
To get signed up with My New Hope!, head on over to New Hope Church’s website at www.newhopeadel.org and click on the “My New Hope!” tab.
