Welcome 

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.  

Peace,

Pastor Don

First Responders Sunday

On Sunday, October 20, we will invite our local first responders to be recognized during worship and join us for our monthly potluck lunch following worship.  Please plan to attend both worship and the lunch and bring extra food so we can accommodate our guests.

If you know or interact with any local first responders, please take the opportunity to invite them to this special day.


Fall Festival

Make plans now to be a part of this year’s Fall Festival on Saturday, October 26, from 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  There will be a car show from 9 a.m. til 3 p.m., children’s village with games and inflatables, food, music and lots of fellowship!  Plan to be here for all or part of the day as we welcome our community and enjoy each other’s company.


Operation Christmas Child

It's that time of year when we reflect on the greatest gift given to us and how we respond. Of course, that gift was Christ.  We can respond by reaching out to children around the world through Operation Christmas Child.  Pick up an empty shoe box and fill it with a "wow" toy, other fun toys, hygiene items and school supplies.  Pray for the boy or girl who will receive this box, enclose a note and picture of yourself and a $9 donation to cover shipping.  Return the filled shoebox by November 10th.  (Sponsored by Hope Group)
