New Hope Baptist Fellowship to celebrate 10th anniversary
New Hope Baptist Fellowship is celebrating its 10th anniversary today with music, a video that recaps the past decade and a few refreshments.
Music will fill the air during the celebration from 6:30-8:30 p.m., along with a message from the pastor to encourage folks where they go from here and what still lies ahead for the church.
The celebration is open to the entire community to attend.
New Hope Baptist Fellowship Pastor Mike Faircloth said the celebration is a three-fold event that will begin with reminiscing with photos and videos of the church’s beginnings. He said it will provide them all with a good laugh and look into the past.
“We are giving God the thanks and glory for all he has done for the past 10 years,” he said.
The past 10 years, he said, have been phenomenal.
“It is so amazing and exciting to see what God has done in people’s lives … the good things he has done in the last 10 years,” Faircloth said.
Faircloth originally came to Cape Coral to serve in another church before the idea emerged to open New Hope Baptist Church.
“There were not a lot of churches in Cape Coral,” he said about the area 10 years ago. “The need and possibilities are wide open and still are for new churches to start.”
The number of churches in an area, Faircloth said, does not matter because each one has its own character.
“By the character and nature of the church, we are able to make connections with people,” he said about the loving, accepting and generosity they posses. “You want people to feel that they are very welcome from their first time.”
New Hope Baptist Fellowship is located at 431 Nicholas Parkway, East. For information, call Pastor Faircloth at 239-634-3565.
