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.





Make your reservation for 10:30 a.m. Indoor Worship as seating is limited.

Call the church office at 967-8181 or sign-up on Realm at  Worship Sign Up Look for your confirmation email.

We will observe social distancing and wear masks for the safety of all.

Outdoor Worship will continue at 10:30 a.m. as weather permits.

James Monroe Mission House Needs

The James Monroe Mission House is only accepting non-perishable food at this time.  

They ask that we donate clothing to Goodwill until further notice.



*Please Note*  You can continue to drop food off at the Fountain Inn Police Dept. or bring to church on Sunday. We will pick up any donations after service on Sundays and deliver to the James Monroe Mission House. 

Thank you for your continued generosity and support for this mission.

Please visit the website by clicking HERE for most urgent needs.


Sound and Video Volunteers Needed!

Within the next several weeks our worship service will be moving inside.  We are in urgent need of volunteers to learn and work the sound and video systems, as well as run slides during the service. Please contact Beth Lowe or the pastor for more information or to volunteer.

By prior action of our Board of Trustees, small groups and/or individuals wishing to meet on campus AND use the church building, shed, or youth building MUST adhere to the following practices:

  1. Must receive approval from the Trustees (or some other governing body of the church) prior to that meeting.
  2. Enter and exit through one door. (To reduce surfaces that are touched.)
  3. Limit your activity to one area if possible and observe the 6-foot social distancing protocol.

(Disinfectant is located in the kitchen area near the paper towels.) This includes, but is not limited to, the following: phones, light switches, security alarm keypad, door knobs/handles, counter space, chairs, copier, kitchen and bathroom faucets/fixtures, and soundboard/video/computer/remote control/microphones, pens and pencils. Chairs and other upholstered surfaces should be sprayed with disinfectant.

Again, these only apply to groups meeting inside a Hopewell building.
