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.
