New Hope United Methodist Church

missions

We believe that Outreach is an essential part of our faith and, therefore, among one of the most important activities at New Hope UMC. John Wesley believed that Christians could not have authentic personal holiness without social holiness. He said, "I look upon all the world as my parish" and "do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, to all the souls you can, in every place you can, at all the times you can, with all the zeal you can, as long as ever you can."

John Wesley not only preached about works of mercy, he "practiced" what he preached. For example, he lived modestly and gave all he could to people who were poor; visited people in prison and provided spiritual guidance, food and clothing to them; spoke out against slavery and forbade it in Methodism; founded schools; published books, pamphlets and magazines for the education and spiritual edification of people; taught and wrote about good health and even dispensed medicines from his chapels.

The Visitation Ministry of New Hope United Methodist Church go where they are needed. The Ministry visits shut-ins, hospitals, and nursing homes.

You can "go" to church, or you can "be" the church. Outreach Ministries is a great way to "be " the church and experience God’s presence.


Nursing Home Ministry

A team of New Hope UMC members has re-organized and is visiting three nursing homes in our area each month. Visits take place on one Monday afternoon to two homes and another Monday afternoon to the other home each month. The team would love to have you join them! You may speak with any team member to find out more. Look for a feature article in an upcoming edition of the Church newsletter.

He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them. Hebrews 6:10.
