September Meeting Dates

As we prepare for the Church Charge Conference, a number of important meetings are set for September.

Sermon: Wider Than We Think

In troubled times, how do we set aside our agendas, see one another, and respond in love and unity? As Pastor Kate reminds us, sometimes we need to listen to the voices of children. This message references Isaiah 56:1-8.

Hopewell UMC Open Mic Night Set for Sept 8

The Hopewell UMC Open Mic Night will be held on the second Friday in September due to the Labor Day Holiday weekend. So join in the fun on Friday September 8, as we take our music outdoors with a porch party!

Sermon: Haunted By Our Better Selves

Why do busy people sometimes place themselves last? Self-care is not about avoiding life’s storms, Pastor Kate reminds us. It’s about preparing for them. Pastor Kate references Matthew 14-22-33, in which Jesus (and briefly Peter) walk on water ion the midst of a storm.

Standing Together Against Hate: Hopewell Community Peace Vigil

The Hopewell community gathered at the Hopewell United Methodist Church on Aug. 16 to stand together against hate and injustice at a Community Peace Vigil sponsored by the Hopewell Council of Churches. It was an evening of prayer, song and a candlelight vigil and march through the borough. Attendees heard messages from Pastor Kate, leaders of other Hopewell Borough churches, and the mayor.
