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!
We will celebrate Homecoming on Sunday, September 28 during our morning worship service. Rev. Sheila Rogers will be the guest pastor for the service. A covered dish lunch will follow worship in the fellowship hall.
We will be collecting food items for the Pomaria Community Food Bank now on a regular basis instead of just on "special" holidays. There is a purple tub located in the back room off of the sanctuary, and each time it is filled the food will be delievered to them. They are currently in need of any canned food items, peanut butter, jelly, pasta, and pasta sauce. All donations are greatly appreciated!
