Fun and Fellowship
Fun & Fellowship events
Part of being the Church is being community. New Hope relishes the opportunity to pause and be together with each other and the wider community to share food and fun with each other. These events are held at "Festival" times of the year as we celebrate our cultural and religious heritage. They usually take place on the church campus after 10:30 Worship. Dates change with the calendar year so be sure to find out when then next one occurs by checking the church calendar under the resources tab.
Rally Sunday - opens the program year. We invite as many friends and neighbors as we can to attend church with us as we kick off another year of Faith Formation (Sunday School) and other church programming.
OktoberBash - combination of Oktoberfest celebration and "Fall (Halloween) Fun Bash." There is a fall festival atmosphere with games and activities for people of all ages. Young and old are encouraged to wear their Halloween Costume. There is also a very strong German heritage feeling with the menu for the day including brats, beer, and potato salad along with many dilectible dessert offerings.
Easter Breakfast and Easter Egg Hunt - On Easter Sunday every year, faith formation is placed on hold so that we can all gather for breakfast together and celebrate the Risen Christ. There is also an Easter egg hunt for the younger children.

From its inception, music has always been central to the Lutheran Church and making fine music available to the public for education and enjoyment is a mission Martin Luther himself felt was critical to the church. New Hope Lutheran Church shares this passion for music and its continued exposure to the wider public.
In keeping with these values, New Hope Lutheran Church is proud to offer The Phil Kramer Artists’ Recital Series highlighting the best in local and national talent and the wonderful Parson’s Pipe Organ that resides in our Sanctuary. It is our wish and our hope that we will inspire the larger community of Fort Bend County and the Houston Metropolitan Area with the programs presented in this series and inspire in the young and the old, the artisan and the novice, the staunch critic and the enthusiastic listener, a greater love of music, deeper spiritual devotion and a desire to explore the richness of life that is made possible by our creator and our Lord and Savior, Jesus, the Christ.
The book club meets once a month at a member's home for an hour and a half. We discuss the book we have read and share our views while enjoying some refreshments. As a group, we select our next reading and meeting date. Club members recommend books, some from the latest books out, and some are classics which have been around for a long time. We select a new reading as a group. We choose a meeting date (Thursdays seem to work best for people's schedules) and someone in the group will volunteer to host the next gathering. We extend this fellowship to anyone that enjoys reading, discussing and having a fun evening.
