Our Values

We believe in living out the values of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are a welcoming community that is one with Christ, one with each other and one in service to all.

Our Mission

A welcoming community that is one with Christ, one with each other, one in service to all.

We believe we are called to share our resources, time and talents in service to our church, our local communities and our world.

Creation Care
Green Disciples

We believe it is our responsibility to care for God’s creation. In addition to recycling programs throughout our building, we provide education to the community, have community gardens on our property, plant native plants and more.

Love Thy Neighbor
Commitment to Community

New Hope UMC has a long history of supporting the community, including:

- providing daycare for teen moms

- housing the homeless through PADS

- collecting hats and mittens for local schools

We continue to look for opportunities to spread God’s love by serving our communities.

Discipleship for Christ
Worship and Family

We believe in expanding our faith community by teaching the gospel, sharing time together in worship and fellowship and welcoming everyone to the table of our Lord.

Our Beliefs

We invite you to explore our beliefs and join us in our pursuit of living out our faith in boldness and passion.

  • God

    We believe in one God, who is revealed in three distinct persons - God as Parent, Son and Holy Spirit.

  • Love as the Core of Christ's Church

    We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus whose life, death and resurrection demonstrate God’s redeeming love.

  • Community of Faith Guided by the Holy Spirit

    The Holy Spirit is God's present activity in our midst. When we sense God's leading, God's challenge, or God's support or comfort, it's the Holy Spirit at work.

  • Open Communion

    "Communion is our meal," Burton-Edwards* explains, "It is our feeding. We need that sustenance and we need it regularly."

    Are you hungry for communion with Jesus Christ? We serve all who present themselves, no matter where you are in your journey of faith. There are no conditions for church membership or completion of a class required.

    * Rev. Taylor Burton-Edwards, former director of worship resources with Discipleship Ministries of The United Methodist Church

  • Grace-filled Theology

    The Bible teaches us that everything we have from God is given because of God's great love for us. "You are saved by God's grace because of your faith," Ephesians 2 reads. "This salvation is God's gift.”

    The role of God's grace is to prepare us, redeem us, and continually shape us into the people we were created to be.

  • Fellowship

    We have several fellowship-centered activities to bring people together for fun, crafts, potluck suppers and more! Here are just a few ways to participate:

    Supper Clubs

    Ladies’ Luncheon

    Stampin’ Up (stamp crafts)

    United Women in Faith: The women of the church invite you to join our regular meetings on the first Saturday of the month at 10am.

    United Methodist Men: The men of the church welcome you to attend our monthly breakfast. Great food and conversation are always a part of the gatherine at 9am on the third Saturday on the month.

    See the calendar on our website for all the details!

  • Power of Prayer through Music and Worship

    Whether you are singing in worship, community, or prayer, music enriches our lives with its art.

    "When you sing, you pray twice." - commonly attributed to St. Augustine
