As the year draws to a close, we look back on ALL God’s goodness. He is still in control. Despite not being able to gather for most of the year the Kingdom still grew in 2020. Whether it was inside, outside, or online, we never missed a Sunday to deliver God’s Word and worship Him. 

We are a church that celebrates life change, and while numbers aren’t everything, they are incredibly encouraging. We wanted to share some highlights of 2020 as we close out the year strong.


  • 95 people received a “Start to Follow” bundle that contains a Bible

  • 139 people raised their hand to be saved online

  • Over 5,000 phone calls were made to people to check on them during shelter in place

  • 36 Life Groups met throughout the year, online and in-person

  • 289 bags of trash were picked up from Highway 242

  • 300+ bags of groceries given out each month through We Love Our City; launched in 2020

  • $55,525.13 was given to local outreach initiatives and local, national, and global missionaries 

  • NH Preschool opened the Children’s Waiting Room in the Contra Costa Courthouse in Martinez 

  • 86 Thanksgiving baskets were given away

  • 38 students ages 3rd-12th grades are in our Kuest Leadership program this year

  • 125 students (1st-12th grade) participated in a 1-day “camp” experience

And, Christmas initiatives with Toys for Tots, Meals on Wheels, and adopting local families are happening right now!

Even though we have accomplished much together in this past year, there’s still much to be done! To that end, we want to invite you to finish the year strong and prepare for an exciting 2021 by prayerfully considering an end-of-year financial gift to New Hope Church. As you pray, ask God what He would have you give.

You can give by:

  • mailing a check to the church office: 2120 Olivera Ct. Concord, CA 94520 

  • send a text to 84321 including the amount of your gift in the message line


(Note: in order for these gifts to be tax deductible they must be postmarked and/or given before December 31, 2020.)

Your gift changes lives and is stewarded well.

"The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give your peace." Numbers 6:24-26 NIV 

Together in His Service,

Pastors Joe and Teena
