The Hopewell UMC is working hard to provide a bit of holiday spirit for those who would otherwise not have a good holiday. In November, we collect for Operation Christmas Child and for HomeFront Thanksgiving baskets. So bring in your donations on Sunday, Nov. 12.

Lots of fall news from Hopewell UMC. Our newsletter is published in time for planning your fall and winter.
The Hopewell Council of Churches is coordinating a community-wide service event called “The Church Has Left The Building,” which helps to feed and minister to many people in our community.
Congregations will not be in Sunday morning worship, but we will be leaving our buildings on this special day to be the hands and feet of Jesus in countless community projects.
