New Hope Church is a healthy growing church. We have seen God moving in some exciting ways over the last year. We have 100-120 people in attendance on Sundays. Our current youth group is 15-20 kids. New Hope is a welcoming church that loves people well. We excel in hospitality, and being real. We are located in Lebanon Oregon.
