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. No Worries if You Forget to Register!! We will Make Room!

Call the church office at 864-967-8181 by 1 p.m. on Thursday or sign-up on Realm by Saturday at Worship Sign-Up   Look for your confirmation email.

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

Please note that the doors in the back of the sanctuary, as well as the entry doors in the hallway, will be open during morning worship services.  This will help with air circulation to lower the Covid-19 risk factors.  Please dress accordingly.

The worship service will still broadcast on Facebook Live at 10:30 a.m.

Calling All Graduates - DEADLINE APPROACHING

Are you, or a relative, graduating this year? You are invited to send pictures of the graduate along with information giving from where they are graduating and what their future plans are. We will recognize our graduates on Sunday, May 23, during the morning worship service.
