Welcome To New Hope United Methodist Church!

We offer worship services at 8:30, 9:30, and 10:45 am.  The 8:30 and 10:45 am services are traditional services in the main sanctuary.  Our 9:30 service is a contemporary service in the Family Life Center that includes upbeat, contemporary praise and worship songs.  All services are casual in nature, but intense in content.  The time spent in God's presence is filled with song, prayer, silence, and response; regardless of which service you attend.

During each service New Hope offers a unique prayer time.  We offer a nursery 9:30 and 10:45 am services and Sunday School class time for youth and children during the 10:45 am service.

New Hope Meals for the Heartland:


9th Annual Packaging Event

Meals from the Heartland packaging event on August 11!


Meals from the Heartland is a non-profit organization that has packaged more than 100 million meals to feed starving people around the world and across Iowa since 2008.  Isaiah 58:10 says, “Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness and the darkness around you will shine as bright as noon.” This is a great opportunity to get your family involved in doing God’s work! Invite extended family too, as well as friends and neighbors. You can all package together and have fun doing it!

Four Stations with 8-10 people each. There will be sign-up sheets on the Mission table at the rear of Fellowship Hall. We encourage signing up early so your family can all volunteer together at one station.

You can sit down if needed, and children as young as 4 can help. It is a fun and rewarding event that many families look forward to.

Three Sessions:

  • 8:30 am short worship service and packaging from 9:00-10:00
  • 9:30 am short worship and packaging from 10:00-11:00
  • 10:45 am short worship and packaging from 11:15-12:15

Donations: Any amount is welcome! If you would like to donate a box of 216 meals, the amount is $43.20.  A total of $5,616 is necessary to fund the food for 28,080 meals that we will package. If you would like to give to this great project, write your check with Meals on the memo line and place it in the offering plate.
