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.

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.




Hurricane Relief

­­HUMC will be having a "Bake Sale for the Bahamas " on September 22 to help send funds to the United Methodist Committee on Relief in response to the Hurricane. Please bring your baked goodies and place them on the table in the hallway. Don’t forget to purchase something, as well!!

Operation Christmas Child

It's that time of year when we reflect on the greatest gift given to us and how we respond. Of course, that gift was Christ.  We can respond by reaching out to children around the world through Operation Christmas Child.  Pick up an empty shoe box and fill it with a "wow" toy, other fun toys, hygiene items and school supplies.  Pray for the boy or girl who will receive this box, enclose a note and picture of yourself and a $9 donation to cover shipping.  Return the filled shoebox by November 10th.  (Sponsored by Hope Group)
