Welcome to Hopewell!

Our mission is to follow Christ.  Our method is loving and serving our neighbors even as we grow deeper in our own faith.  

If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have the privilege of worshipping with you and getting to know you.

Want to Support the Ministries of Hopewell?


We are a "Safe Sanctuary"

Our church follows a policy called "Safe Sanctuaries" in an effort to keep our children, youth, and vulnerable adults safe while attending church events.  Please look under the "Info Center" tab to find the policy as well as the required Volunteer Application if you would like to work with any of these groups.




SOUPER Bowl Collection

Next Sunday, February 2, as we leave worship you are invited to participate in our “SOUPER” Bowl Collection. All money donated will be given to James Monroe Mission House to help feed the hungry. Please give generously above and beyond your regular giving to support the ministries of Hopewell.

Super Bowl Sunday - February 2

Next Sunday, February 2, is “Super Bowl Sunday” at Hopewell. Everyone is invited to dress in your game day gear complete with your favorite NFL team jersey or tee shirt. This year’s game is between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers, but feel free to wear gear from your favorite team even if they’re not in this year’s big game.

Super Bowl Tailgate Party

Bring your favorite “tailgate” food with you to church next Sunday. After church we will enjoy an indoor tailgate and fellowship time together. Drinks and paper products will be provided. Come join the fun, food, and fellowship! NOTE: This will take the place of our regular 3rd Sunday potluck for February.

Childcare Help Needed!

Hopewell is blessed to have families with young children that need childcare on Wednesday evenings during Handbell practices and every Sunday morning during Sunday School and Worship.  Please, please, please consider volunteering to serve in a regular rotation by contacting either Lindsay Moye, nursery coordinator or the church office - (864) 967-8181 or hopewellumcoffice@gmail.com.  Help is needed immediately!  Praise be to God!

New to HUMC - Out to Lunch Bunch

Come be a part of HUMC’s newest small group! Bring your friends to enjoy lunch and fellowship together at a restaurant on the first Mondays of each month. Our first lunch will be at the Coach House on February 3 at 11:00 am. For reservations or more information contact Roger Oberman.

New Year, New Bible Study

Have you ever wished you knew more about what is actually in your Bible? If so, you don’t want to miss this opportunity! Pastor Brown will lead a Sunday morning discussion starting next Sunday, January 6, that will guide participants through a chronological reading of events in the Bible. If you would like to be a part of this class please either CLICK HERE for the reading schedule or pick up a reading schedule from the information table at the entrance to the sanctuary and begin daily readings on January 1st. The schedule of readings will also be on the church website.

Sunday Study Opportunities

Please join us Sundays at 9:15 am for one of our studies:


  • Boys and girls in preschool and elementary school are invited to Sunday School at 9:15 am. We look forward to seeing you!  Volunteers who are willing to help teach or substitute are asked to contact Mary Russell.
  • Max Lucado unpacks 12 of the Bible’s most significant promises, equipping you to overcome difficult circumstances by keeping your focus on the hope found in the promises of Scripture rather than dwelling on the problems in front of you. For every problem in life, God has given you a promise. Meets in the copier room across from the sanctuary.
  • Read the Bible in a year. Meets in the second classroom on the left as you enter the doors by the kitchen. Reading guides are available at the church.

Weekly Morning Bible Study

Hopewell is holding a Bible study on Tuesdays at 9:30am for persons new to the Bible. We will meet in the kitchen of Hopewell and will read the “stories” of the Bible. There is no reading preparation for the class, and each class is a new story. A Bible is necessary; you can bring your own, or one will be provided. If you have questions, please contact Jessica Collins.

Weekly Prayer List

Our prayer coordinator, Mary Brown, invites all who would like to be included in the weekly prayer list update email to contact her via email at hopewellprayers@gmail.com .
