Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday dear Shepherd’s Link!
Happy Birthday to you!
Can you believe that the Shepherd’s Link, the vision of our pastor, Joe A. Carter, has been in existence for five years as of April 2012? During this time, they have been faithfully serving the congregation of The New Hope Baptist Church.
Their mission is to keep all members connected and linked together. Every member of New Hope, if they desire, is assigned a Deacon or Deaconess who contacts them on a monthly basis. They pray with them and keep them informed about upcoming events. Moreover, they provide support, counseling, and fellowship for the church family by keeping the links in our chain connected. Of course each member is welcomed to call their Shepherd’s Link contact person whenever needed.
Deaconess Loretta Summerville is the Coordinator with a leadership team consisting of Deaconess Ossie Edmonds, Barbara Pulliam, Dale Ward, and Luvearn White.
If you do not have a Shepherd’s Link contact person and would like one, please feel free to contact anyone of the above team members. They will continue to connect with the congregation in order to stay on one accord so that all the of the body are working in harmony all to the glory of God! (1 Corinthians 12:12)
