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.




Online Bible Study - Book of James

Join pastor Don as he guides weekly discussion on the Book of James in the New Testament.  Sessions will be held on Monday nights at 7:00 p.m. for six weeks beginning Monday, April 6.  Each week we will discuss just one chapter so the reading is not overwhelming.  We will use Zoom to host our online discussion.  Follow the link below to register for this group.  NOTE: The meeting code is 160180

Register in advance for this meeting:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
