New Hope United Methodist Church is a delightful, historic church founded in 1795 in the beautiful Pomaria countryside of Newberry County, South Carolina.
Our basic philosophy of ministry is that the Church has a three-fold ministry responsibility: Prayer, the study of Scripture, and giving spiritual direction to the church and the community. These three mandates cover all the activities in which this church engages. Whether it is youth ministries, fellowship, Bible studies, evangelism, training, or care-ministries, we hope to stay faithful to committed prayer, Bible study, and giving spiritual direction to those whom God has given us.
A friendly, caring people, New Hope UMC is committed to dynamic worship and biblical preaching. Coupled with a warm fellowship and a welcoming atmosphere, the worship at New Hope is as nurturing as it is enthusiastic. It is a great place to worship and serve our Lord Jesus Christ! Come and join us each week!
Please join us on Wednesdays - March 4, March 11, and March 18 - for our three week bible study "6 Decisions That Will Change Your Life" with Pastor Kathy at 7PM in the fellowship hall. Each session will last about an hour. We look forward to seeing you there!
Please join the Middle Age Adult Fellowship on Friday, March 27 ... the group will meet at the Grille on Main (Main Street, Newberry) between 6:15 PM and 6:30 PM for a "dutch treat" dinner. Afterwards, they will be attending the Newberry Community Choir Easter Musical at Newberry Elementary School. For more information, please contact Jenny Lynn Stone.
Now that the holidays are over, our help is needed more than ever at the Pomaria Food Bank. Through our regular collecting, we've become one of the largest local contributors and our help is greatly appreciated. Pick up a few extra cans next time you're doing your grocery shopping and drop them off in the purple tub in the back of the church. Thank you!
We're working to bring New Hope to the future with the Earl A. Graham, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament! It will be held on Saturday, May 23 at the Country Club of Newberry to benefit our building expansion fund. If you would like to donate door prizes, help sell hole sponsorships, play in the tournament and/or help out the day of the event, please contact Elaine Bedenbaugh. Applications for golfers and hole sponsors are available here.
