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.

James Monroe Mission House Needs Food Donations

We would like to remind everyone that the James Monroe House is in need of food contributions. This need has been heightened by the coronavirus pandemic, which has caused an increase in demand for non-perishable food products such as canned (especially green vegetables) and unopened dry foods.

A donation bin for the James Monroe Mission House has been established inside the Fountain Inn Police Department for any non-perishable food goods you would be able to donate. We have been asked to wipe down the packaging before placing it in the bin.

Should anyone wish to donate, but is unable or uncomfortable dropping off a food donation, we would be willing to pick up your donation and deliver it to the station. Just call us to arrange a pick up on Tuesdays until the church reopens (we will adhere to social distancing guidelines).

Thank you for supporting this very important mission.

Amazing Athletes Class

Hello everyone. This is Joey Moye, or as the kids call me that I coach at the Learning Center, Coach Joey. First, I want to thank all the first responders, medical workers, as well as everyone doing their part to get our country back on our feet. I wanted to inform everyone that I have now taken my sports, nutrition education, and muscle identification classes virtual. I will also be offering personal classes for one specific sport or exercise as well. The classes will be 30 min and you can sign up for $20 - that covers the entire month. Click the below two videos for more details on the program. I understand the cabin fever is kicking in and the hard work and dedication everyone is putting in to teach your kids. Since school will still be out of session for the rest of the year along with summer coming up, quarantine is getting difficult to handle. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions at coachjoey@amazingathletes.com or 678-756-3864.

Thank you.

Coach Joey
