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.

Want to Support the Ministries of Hopewell?


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.




New Morning Bible Study

Hopewell is holding a Bible study on Tuesdays at 9:30am for persons new to the Bible. We will meet in the kitchen of Hopewell and will read the “stories” of the Bible. There is no reading preparation for the class, and each class is a new story. A Bible is necessary; you can bring your own, or one will be provided. The first class is August 27th. If you have questions, please contact Jessica Collins.

Soundboard Training

There will be a training session for the use of the new soundboard on Thursday, Aug 29 at 5:30pm in the Sanctuary.  If you are interested, please watch the attached video before coming to the session.

Sunday Morning Book Studies

Please join us Sundays at 9:15 am for one of our book studies:

  • “Here in Spirit”   "Instead of relating narrowly to the Spirit based on just a few of his gifts, this book broadens our engagement with him, touring aspects of his vast character that often go unexplored." The class meets in the third room on the left as you enter the doors by the kitchen (the copier room).
  • "A Layman Looks at the Lord’s Prayer" by W. Phillip Keller will resume on September 8. Meets in the second classroom on the left as you enter the doors by the kitchen.
