Godspeed & Farewell

Godspeed & Farewell

On October 3, 2021, the congregation of New Hope gathered to receive the last sermon message from Pastor Craig Beeker and to bid Pastor Craig and Kristine Godspeed and Farewell.

The service was recorded live then later edited to include additional content. The edited version is available here as a tribute to Pastor Craig’s 29 years of service, and to provide a church archive of this most significant event in the life of New Hope.

Picture Video Tribute

In preparation for the Godspeed and Farewell Service, members of the congregation were invited to share personal photos that were taken during Pastor Craig’s time at New Hope. Dr. Terry Paulson gathered the photos and created this Picture Video Tribute that was later presented to Pastor Craig and Kristine.
