Welcome to Hope UMC!
Three guiding principles:
GOD’S LOVE IS GREAT! We want you to experience the amazing love of Jesus.
GOD CALL US TO A NEW LIFE. We invite you to join us on the journey of being followers of Jesus Christ.
GOD’S WORD IS RELEVANT. We believe that God’s Word offers us hope and guidance for everyday life. We seek to be shaped by God’s truth through our daily Bible reading, small group studies, and teaching in our various weekly worship services.

Our congregation shares the love of Jesus in practical ways in our community and world. Every month, we have a different missions focus. Some of our projects are listed below:
Baby Hugs – Families with newborns at our local hospital receive a gift bag full of practical supplies.
Bundle Up – We collect and give away new and gently used winter coats, boots, caps, mittens and gloves to anyone in need. The main distribution takes place on Saturday morning from mid-October to early-December.
Child Sponsorship – Our Vacation Bible School kids have been sponsoring a child in Guatemala since 2016. We work through Compassion International.
Mission Trips – Opportunities for youth and adults to experience the world and share God’s love.
Mujila Falls Agricultural Center, Zambia – We support United Methodist missionary Paul Webster’s work in this African country. Through this educational farm, Zambians are learning to be self-sufficient and lives are being changed.
Prayer Shawl – This interchurch ministry has provided hundreds of beautiful handmade shawls that are accompanied by prayers of blessing. These shawls warm both body and soul!
Radio Ministry – On Mondays through Saturdays, from 8:55 – 9:00 a.m., we share the “Living Hope” devotional on our local KBEW station. Our Sunday morning 9 a.m. services are broadcast live on 1560AM.
United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) – Our denomination has a well-planned, long-term effective approach to disaster relief. Long after the news headlines are a distant memory, UMCOR will be on the ground providing relief and recovery around the world. 100% of the donated supplies and gifts go to actual recover efforts. Overhead costs are paid from a separate fund.
These are just some of the projects we support through our gifts and volunteering. Do you have a mission project on your heart? Feel free to share it with our Missions Committee!
