New Hope UMC


On August 14, New Hope received a new member. Kevin Hutto joined our congregation and was also baptized into the faith during a special ceremony. His parents, David and Cathy Hutto, participated in the ceremony along with Pastor Sandra and Lay Leader Art Whetstone.

On July 31, New Hope together with Buncombe UMC celebrated our Christian faith and devotion to God in song. On August 14, we celebrate by welcoming a new member. A different kind of celebration to be sure and we are honored and humbled by both. Kevin has made his commitment to God and His church in the presence of family and a cloud of witnesses. We as a church have affirmed our commitment to support him by modeling our lives after the example of Jesus Christ. 

Kevin has been attending New Hope for several months and has become active in many areas of service. These include the Food Bank, website and church history. He also assisted in getting video for the Fellowship Hall. In fact, he has done everything he has been asked to do and much more. Kevin lives in Rowesville and is employed by Okonite Cable in Orangeburg.
