growing and planting...
... for the training of the saints in the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:12)
Just as a greenhouse is a place created to grow plants with the intention of planting them elsewhere, so The Greenhouse is designed to be a space that helps facilitate the growth of believers so that they will be healthily planted as ministers of the Gospel in Manhattan and to the very ends of the earth.
The Greenhouse functions to grow and plant multiplying ministers of the Gospel through providing space for:
- high quality equipping classes
- a Christian studies library
- reading, working, and studying
- personal discipleship & counseling meetings
- outreach classes & events in a strategically located central venue
- New Hope staff offices & leadership coordination
The Greenhouse's core structure is fully paid for by the sale of our old land off Scenic Drive. However, we are still seeking to raise $59,700 to finish out the basement and furnish The Greenhouse with furniture and A/V equipment so that the space can be used to its fullest potential. You can read more about the specifics of the needs in our New Hope NEWS #22.
Our elders have requested each of us to consider helping by donating over and beyond your normal tithe. No dollar amount is too small and these donations will be tax-deductible. To make a donation, make checks out to “New Hope Church” with “Building Fund” in the memo. You can place checks in the offering baskets on Sunday mornings or mail them to the church office: New Hope Church, 1300 Fremont St., Manhattan, KS 66502.
You can also donate conveniently online by clicking on the “Give to New Hope” link on the left-hand menu and choosing "Building FUND" under the "Apply My Gift To" option.
