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.




Reverse Advent Calendar

There are so many in need during this time of year. You can help by joining us in participating in the Reverse Advent Calendar for James Monroe Mission House. Each day simply add an item listed on the calendar to a box, bring the box to Hopewell UMC either weekly or on Christmas Eve, and we will make sure James Monroe Mission House receives the donation for their food assistance distribution.

Matthew 25: 37,40 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you . . . The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’"
