New Hope United Methodist Church 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.

Discipleship happens in relationship among the Body of Christ.  Do you seek to become a Christ follower? Come and join us on the path to discipleship. We rely upon the Holy Spirit in using the means of grace (prayer, Bible Study, the Lord's Supper, fasting, and holy conversations) to grow in our relationship with God. 

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.

  • January Journey 2020

    The Newberry Area Council on Ministries will present the annual January Journey services during the month of January.  The theme for 2020 is "I Am the Vine, You Are the Branches".  All services will begin at 6 PM with a 15 minute hymn sing.  Please note the change in start time.  Services conclude with a time of fellowship and refreshments.  The offering from each service will be split between the Newberry Free Medical Clinic and the Interfaith Emergency Relief Fund.  Non-perishable food items will also be collected each week to benefit the Manna House in Newberry.  For more information, including the schedule, please click here.

  • 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.  All donations can be placed in the purple tub in the vestibule of the church.

  • Backpack Ministry

    We have teamed up with Morris Chapel Southern Methodist Church in support of their "Back Pack" Ministry for students in need at Pomaria-Garmany Elementary School.  This helps to ensure that children in need have food over the weekend.  For the month of January, we are collecting individual cans of vienna sausages.
