There is an underlying connection between the members of any community that eclipses the distinct differences they may have between themselves. Some share a common pursuit or belief, while others face similar obstacles and must fight common battles. Such is the case with the residents of New Hope. Though each citizen faces their own unique set of trials, their stories will reflect a shared mission which is finding the key to the question, "how do I become the best me I can be?" In one story, we learn what it means to truly give from the heart as a young woman gives from her want rather than from her abundance. In another tale, we follow Joshua as he learns the importance of standing strong and courageous by resting on and seeking power in the Lord. Each story takes place in a particular area of New Hope and teaches a unique lesson about discovering and becoming the person God created us to be.
The fun and very special thing about New Hope is that the entire town exists in its own world inside an elaborate model. In each lesson, we see Pastor Steve assembling, painting and perfecting a minute detail of his miniature town as he uncovers for us Biblical truths seen in the lives and experiences of its inhabitants.
