New Hope United Methodist Church is a delightful, historic church founded in 1795 in the beautiful Pomaria countryside of Newberry County, South Carolina.

We share in the United Methodist Church's Mission of making disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world by making disciples of Christ of ourselves, both individually and communally as the Body of Christ. In doing this, we see discipleship as actively following in the footsteps of Jesus. We are intentionally loving as Jesus loves, caring as Jesus cares, and serving as Jesus serves.

Discipleship happens in relationship among the Body of Christ, do you seek to become a Christ follower? Come, join us on the path to discipleship. We rely upon the Holy Spirit in using the means of grace (prayer, Bible Study, the Lord's Supper, fasting, and holy conversations) to grow in our relationship with God. 

We gather together in worship where we are fed spiritually as we praise God's Holy Name, and then we are sent out to love and serve the Lord by acts of mercy to all of creation.
