About Us

If you’ve never been to church before, if you’ve given up on church, or if you’re looking for a church that understands the specific challenges and stresses you face, then New Hope is for you.

New Hope began as the congregations of the Proctorville and Rome United Methodist churches united to form one body. Their vision was to reach out to people with the message of God’s love. Today we have a regular attendance of about 75. While the growing number of people is significant, the real thrill is seeing lives change by God’s power. We invite you to come discover what God might have here for you.

At New Hope, we believe that God created mankind in His image. Unfortunately, by choosing to live life our own way, we became separated from God. Because there was no other way, God sent Jesus to die on the cross in payment for our sin. Anyone who is willing to accept God’s gift of forgiveness and give Him the title and keys to their life can become one of His children.

Our Worship Services

We have one worship service at New Hope on Sunday mornings at 9:15 am.  If you appreciate old and new hymns, solos, as well as some more modern worship songs, you will be right at home here.  The sermon is designed to be Biblically based, relevant to daily life, interesting, and enjoyable.

Don’t worry, we don’t make you stand and introduce yourself! You can meet Pastor Rodney and mingle with the members and other guests. You might just run into a friend or neighbor.

Our Staff

You’d be hard-pressed to find a group of people who loves their jobs more. Not only do they enjoy their work, but they also enjoy why they do it — to share their love for Christ with others. They bring a heart for the Lord and honor Him with their excellence.

United Methodist Church

We are a connectional church, which means that we are part of the United Methodist denomination. This allows each member of small churches, such as ours, to have a greater impact on our world through our collective efforts. You can learn more about The United Methodist Church by going to UMC.org, which has a very good overview. New Hope is one of 165 churches in the Shawnee Valley District of the United Methodist Church organization.
