Welcome to our church family!
We would like to provide some information that will hopefully bring focus on the value of belonging and actively participating in our local church. You and your family are valued as an integral part of God's family and Kingdom! Your support of Hopewell has been and continues to be sincerely appreciated by the total membership.
 
Next Membership Sunday: May  22, 10:45 am Service
If you are interested in beoming a member of HCOG, please pick up a Membership Packet. They are available in the foyer and for download on ths page. Read thru the packet, and please attend class Sunday, August 8th and Sunday, August 15th in Classroom B (9:45 - 10:30 am). If you are not already a member, we look forward to you joining our family!
 
We would like to extend to you an opportunity to join in membership commitment. At Hopewell, we recognize the need for a formal membership. We would like to ask you and your family to commit for four (4) reasons:
 
A Biblical Reason: Christ is committed to the church. " . . . Christ loved the church, and He gave His life for it." Ephesians 

A Cultural Reason: It is an antidote to our society. We live in an age where very few want to be committed to anything... a job... a marriage... our country, etc. This attitude has even produced an attitude that has crept into the church throughout America. That is, an attitude of no commitment, responsibility, or accountability. Membership is an unselfish decision. Commitment always builds character.

A Practical Reason: It defines who can be counted on. Every team must have a roster. Every school must have an enrollment. Every business has a payroll. Every army has an enlistment. Even our country takes a census and requires voter registration. Membership identifies our family.

A Personal Reason: It produces spiritual growth. The New Testament places a major emphasis on the need for Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth. You cannot be accountable when you're not committed to any specific church family.

 
A copy of this information and other material, including a copy of membership covenants and statements of faith, are located in a membership packet in the church lobby. If you are interested in membership, please pick-up one of these packets. There will be an opportunity for church membership given regularly.

Prayerfully consider the above and join with us. WE NEED YOU AND LOVE YOU!

Jerry L. Millwood, Senior Pastor
