Hello, my name is Reverend Paul Davidson and I thank you for your interest in the New Hope Parish family of churches.
New Hope Parish consists of three church families of Miami County Kansas, First Presbyterian Church of Paola, First Presbyterian Church of Osawatomie, and Miami Presbyterian Church located near Louisburg Kansas. Although each of these churches has its own unique character, they all share welcoming hearts, each reflecting agape, God’s selfless love.
At each of the New Hope Parish churches, you will find an inclusive church family that is open and accepting to all. We gladly welcome, with love and acceptance, worshipers from all walks of life to not only be a part of worship but to also be a part of our church family and community.
If you expect to find perfection, although we are striving for it, remembering Paul’s words from Romans 3:23, “All have sinned and fall short of God’s glory…”, we realize that we are all broken, and only by the help of God and while working with each other, can we seek to find peace in our own lives while working to make God’s creation a better place for all; not only by our words but more so through our Christ-centered actions and how we respond to life’s challenges. Responding out of God’s agape, God’s selfless love. A love that puts the needs of others first.
It is our hope and prayer that you will join us in one of our many parish activities, including our weekly worship. Feel free to reach out should you wish to learn more about our welcoming, inclusive church family of New Hope Parish. We look forward to meeting you and to sharing and celebrating God’s Good News with you. In the meantime, please feel free to visit us at www.nhparish.org where you will find more information about the Parish, links to websites for each of the three churches as well as our Parish Calendar of Events.
Blessings and peace to you,
