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
