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.




Children's Ministry Mission Project

The Children's Ministry is collecting donations in conjunction with this year's VBS mission for the Church of God Children's Home. We will be collecting personal toiletries for these children and providing them with their own personalized toiletry bags. Please consider donating toothbrushes, toothpaste, non-aerosol deodorant, combs, hairbrushes, hair ties, headbands, shampoos, and conditioners.

Donations can be delivered to the collection basket outside the sanctuary. The last day to donate will be Sunday, August 1st.

Thanks, Stacy
