What makes New Hope unique?

New Hope practices four core values in everything that we do: learning, loving, worship, and prayer. You will find our take on a nondenominational, Bible-believing church refreshing and different. Check it out this weekend using our live stream or in person at our facility in East Lansing, Michigan.

What kind of worship music and style of service do you practice?

On Sundays the New Hope worship team serves up a contemporary, lively worship experience. Our services can be described as a fresh blend of reverent and authentic worship music rather than liturgical or traditional.

Our pastors often wears jeans! NH provides a casual and inviting atmosphere for you to relax as you learn, love, worship and pray with us.

What kind of giving do you practice?

You won’t experience a high pressure giving pitch at New Hope. In fact, we don’t even pass an offering plate at our services! You’ll find discrete offering boxes located throughout the church and easy giving online.
