Welcome to New Hope United Methodist Church!  New Hope UMC is a delightful, historic church founded in 1795 in the beautiful Pomaria countryside of Newberry County, South Carolina.

We share in the United Methodist Church's mission of making disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world by making disciples of Christ of ourselves, both individually and communally as the Body of Christ. In doing this, we see discipleship as actively following in the footsteps of Jesus. We are intentionally loving as Jesus loves, caring as Jesus cares, and serving as Jesus serves.

We gather together in worship where we are fed spiritually as we praise God's holy name, and then we are sent out to love and serve the Lord by acts of mercy to all of creation.

  • Earl A. Graham, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament

    Our annual Golf Tournament in memory of Earl A. Graham, Jr. is set for Saturday, August 21 at the Country Club of Newberry. Hole sponsorships are now available for $100 each.  The deadline to purchase is July 18.  Help will also be needed the morning of the tournament in various forms. We also need help gathering door prizes for the golfers on the day of the tournament. If you are willing to help in any way, please let Elaine know.

  • A.R.K. Ministry

    A.R.K. is New Hope’s newest ministry designed to nurture members of our  congregation and reach out to our community by performing acts of random kindness.  A basket is located in the vestibule with slips of paper in it.  Each slip of paper contains a random act of kindness to be completed.  These acts range from making a phone call to check on someone, mailing a card, or buying a can of soup for the Food Bank.  It’s really simple, but will provide so much joy for the recipients.  Please consider participating in this ministry!

  • Pomaria Food Bank

    We continue to collect items for the Pomaria Food Bank.  Please consider picking up a few extra items when you're out doing your grocery shopping.  Our continued support of this ministry is greatly appreciated.  You may also drop your goods off in the donation box at the Pomaria Food Bank located at 110 Victoria Street in Pomaria behind Wilson's Grocery.
