The New Hope UMC Capital Fund Campaign

Our vision is to construct an addition to New Hope United Methodist Church to provide adequate Sunday School space, additional storage space, updated kitchen facilities, and additional restrooms all in accordance with the latest building codes so that we can more effectively fulfill God’s mission for our church in our congregation and our community.

Our Current Situation
A growing population requires additional space. Space for Sunday school classes is currently severely limited. Storage space for items we already have is inadequate. Currently, tables, chairs, television, etc. are stored openly in view during all functions. Worship aids (such as computer, projector screen, etc.) require more secure storage.

How Will We Do It?
By establishing a seven year long-range plan which includes:

· Raising approximately $400,000 over a seven year period.
· Proceeding with architectural designs when we reach the $175,000 mark.
· Making every effort to raise $50,000 per year over the next seven years.

What Can I Do?
· Pray! Make a prayerful decision to support this campaign in as full a way as you feel you are able through your active participation and monetary contributions.
· Commit! Make a committed pledge of a set amount each week, month, or year.
· Help! Participate in and support the fundraising efforts that will be taking place over the next several years to benefit the campaign.

The Opportunity
Now is the time for us to raise up a new generation to witness to the Gospel. This is our chance to glorify God by investing in our young people which will secure our future.

Members Have Spoken
Responses to a church-wide survey conducted by our Building Expansion Committee indicates that the members of the congregation overwhelmingly believe that an addition is needed.

Why Now?
We are financially solvent and meeting our apportionments 100% to the United Methodist conference. We are experiencing a growing baby population and now is the time to prepare to meet their spiritual needs for the future. Jesus said , “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them.” Additionally, loan interest rates are low and the economy is continually improving.

Our Goal
Through this Capital Fund Campaign, our goal is to expand our facilities to reach more families, provide more space, and to better serve our congregation and community. We also strive to serve as a model for the next generation by showing our faithful response to God’s call to serve the present age.


At New Hope United Methodist Church, we welcome all that come into our church; provide a center of worship, spiritual growth, and fellowship that enables all to live lovingly; and reach out as faithful disciples of Christ to our community and the world. With your prayers and support of our Capital Fund Campaign, our congregation will be further enabled to work together with our community to know the Holy Spirit, grow and serve as disciples of Jesus Christ, and claim and live the life God has called us to live in ways that we haven’t been able to do before.
