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.




Cookies and Volunteers Needed

Hopewell will have their first annual Christmas Tree Lighting on Thursday, December 12, immediately following the Learning Center’s Christmas program at 6:30 pm. We need 10 people to bring 2 dozen homemade Christmas cookies (kid-friendly and no nuts please). We also need people to act as greeters and to help serve hot chocolate. Please call the church office if you are interested in volunteering at 864-967-8181.

Children's Sunday School Class

Boys and girls in preschool and elementary school are invited to Sunday School at 9:15 am. We look forward to seeing you!  

Volunteers who are willing to help teach or substitute are asked to contact Mary Russell.

Sunday Morning Book Studies

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

  • *NEW* James W. Moore’s book When All Else Fails, Read the Instructions. Please join us as we explore and learn about the Beatitudes, the Ten Commandments, and the new commandment of Jesus.The class meets in the third room on the left as you enter the doors by the kitchen (the copier room).
  • “Down Home Wit & Wisdom” by Steve Chapman. This best-selling author shares his favorite and distinctive quips, followed by a true story that reveals the down-home wisdom in action. Meets in the second classroom on the left as you enter the doors by the kitchen.

Weekly 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. If you have questions, please contact Jessica Collins.

Weekly Prayer List

Our prayer coordinator, Mary Brown, invites all who would like to be included in the weekly prayer list update email to contact her via email at hopewellprayers@gmail.com .
