New Hope UMC


We have another special Praise and Singing service set for July 30 as we will welcome members of the choir from Shandon UMC, Columbia. They are under the capable direction of Eddie Huss. It promised to be a great celebration in praise and song to our Lord, who makes everything possible. We have been blessed at New Hope in many ways in recent times, perhaps none so much as our new friends from other churches who give their time and talents to enrich our worship experience and certainly our lives as well. These events have become a mainstay of our worship calendar. We especially look forward to visits from former members and friends who come back to this place where they have so many fond memories. From our first such fellowship dinner after our new awakening we have had wonderful experiences getting together. We certainly are greatly appreciative of these former members and friends who return home for these gatherings. 

We'll be getting together on July 30, 2017 at 11:15 a.m. If you haven't registered with Sandra, you may do so by telephone, 803-829-3252 or 803-664-3624 cell or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

A big part of these celebrations is our fellowship dinner which follows the service. This year we are pleased to be holding that dinner at The Oaks, in their Magnolia Room. Most of you are familiar with this retirement community affiliated with the Methodist Church. It is about 5 miles north of Rowesville on Highway 21. As usual there is no charge for the dinner, but we'll need to know how many so please let Sandra know that as well. The menu looks something like this: fried chicken, beef stew, mac/cheese, corn, green beans, salad, special dessert, tea.
