Frankie and Sandy come from the Branchville UMC and have been attending New Hope since the pandemic. They have long time roots in th community. Daughter Carrie her husband Todd are also regular attendees.

We are blessed and excited to have these folks officially counted among us as we prepare to step into a new phase in our church history. This is a milestone for New Hope as we begin a new journey in serving our God. Truth be told, we can do more for the Kingdom with more members.

We should all be in prayer for discernment in listening for God's will for us as we enter into a new experience in Methodism.
