New Hope United Methodist Church

Adult Ministry

Welcome to Adult Ministries. New Hope United Methodist Church is committed to being a community where people of all ages grow in their knowledge and trust of God through Jesus Christ. Our adult ministries allow individuals to connect with God and others through friendship, study, service, and prayer. There’s a place for everyone!

Whether you're looking for a Sunday morning class, casual gatherings with friends, or a committed small group, we have a place for you!

As Christian adults, we go through many phases in our lives—finishing up college, developing a career, starting and nurturing a family, becoming an “empty-nester,” retiring ... and all of these events are more meaningful and joy-filled when we walk together. So come find your place, make some new friends, and deepen your faith here at New Hope, where no one walks alone.

Sunday School

Our Adult Sunday School classes offer a convenient opportunity to meet other church members and to learn about the Christian faith. Classes meet at 9 a.m. on Sunday and offer a variety of topics, learning formats, and sizes. You will find classes for young families, mixed ages, and senior adults.

Adult Ministries

Our Young At Heart ministry is designed to help adults continue to grow spiritually, to find a comfortable and safe setting to participate in Christian education, fellowship, and friendship for all adults age 18 and up. This ministry was originally designed for senior adults age 60 and over but it became so popular that everyone is welcome to attend.

The Young at Heart meets monthly on the 3rd Thursday of most months at 6:00pm to enjoy food, fun, and fellowship. The meetings include skits, games, movies, devotions, and activities. Occasionally alternative dates are chosen because of scheduling conflicts. Upcoming events are announced in the church bulletin and on the church web site prior to the events.

The Emmaus movement is ecumenical. The objective of Emmaus is to inspire, challenge, and equip church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, and place of work.

The Walk to Emmaus is a three-day experience which takes a New Testament look at Christianity as a lifestyle. The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual walk, not a physical walk. Combining efforts of laity and clergy, Emmaus is designed to strengthen and renew one’s faith, and the local church through the development of Christian disciples.


Our church is blessed to have many talented musicians in our midst. There are opportunities for all ages to participate in our choir as well as contribute individually. Come and join our uplifting choir! If you are interested in sharing your instrumental music, please contact our Pastor. We have opportunities for special music and accompaniment of our choral group. The New Hope UMC Choir meets for choir rehearsal every Wednesday in the Fellowship Hall. Children's Choir meets at 6 p.m. and the Adult Choir meets at 6:30 p.m.<

Men’s Ministry

Men's Ministry exists to spread a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ. We do this for the glory of God by treasuring Jesus Christ above everything this world has to offer and by growing together as men in devotion to God.

Women’s Ministry

"They had been followers of Jesus and had cared for him while he was in Galilee. Then they and many other women had come with him to Jerusalem." Mark 15:41

From the beginning of Christ’s ministry, women have played an integral role in the Church. This tradition continues today in all areas of the church, both local and worldwide. We invite you to explore the ministries of New Hope United Methodist Church tailored specifically for women.


Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who will be in service to the needs of people in the
community of New Hope and beyond.
