The little brick church in the country with the Big, Big Heart!
Hopewell Church of God has stood as a landmark to the Bascom-Tiffin community since 1858. Our congregation is a friendly, family oriented group of like-minded people, serving Christ with joy and compassion. When you first come through the doors, you are greeted by warm, friendly faces and a facility that is both historic and modern in its conveniences. Hopewell Church is completely handicap accessible, with no steps to navigate anywhere in the building. Recently renovated in 2006, a spacious paved parking lot, air conditioning, comfortable pews and an inviting fellowship area were added. Our covered carport is ideal for dropping someone off when the weather is inclement. Our morning worship service begins each Sunday with the ringing of our historic 1893 bell as our children look forward to lighting the candles on the altar. Worship is a blend of both traditional and contemporary hymns and choruses. Our songs and sermon messages are projected onto a large screen with relevant and often entertaining images designed to drive the message home. Puppet shows and drama skits are performed on the second and third Sunday of each month, with communion being served the first Sunday. Special music and videos help enhance the Gospel message of grace, and opportunity for testimonies and prayer requests accompany each service. A Junior Church is provided immediately after the singing, with Nursery service and a Mother's room available. A traditional interactive Sunday School class follows each service. Worship is followed by a time of fellowship, with breakfasts provided by a different family each week. Wednesday nights an exciting Bible Study series is presented, with plenty of lively discussion to answer your questions. Our Kid's Club for ages pre-K to 3rd grade reaches our little ones with the Gospel message in a fun and exciting way. Our Katelynn's Kids Class (Grades 4-7)embark on exciting adventures of faith each week with Katelynn Shellhammer, while our teens experience a wide variety of activities with Pastor Byron that help build their faith and understanding of God's Word.
