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'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 17 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.
The United Methodist Women are collecting food items for children's backpacks. The items will be packed in backpacks on Fridays for children in need over the weekend. A list of needed items is attached to the collection box. Did you know that the only meal and snacks that some children have are the ones served to them at school? Please help with this ongoing project!
Planning has begun and the dates for our annual vacation bible school have been set! Our theme this year is “Workshop of Wonders”! We’re excited already and can’t wait! Please go ahead and mark your calendars for June 8 – June 12, 2013.
The closing program will be held on Sunday, June 15 during the morning worship service. There are classes and fun for everyone, so please join us! More information will be available soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions or would like to assist in anyway, please contact Gary Graham.
