More about us...
Mt. Hope has a long history. It was founded in 1835, serving the local community of farmers, and established its current location in 1853. The current church sanctuary building was completed in 1899. An education building, connecting foyer, and outdoor pavilion were added over the years.
Mt. Hope is excited to be entering our next chapter with the calling of Chris Eads who began as our new pastor in October 2021. Mt. Hope conducted a prayerful search to find a successor to our retiring pastor, John Zoller, who faithfully served Mt. Hope from 1997 to October 2021. Over Pastor John's tenure, Mt. Hope grew to reflect God's love as a warm and Bible-focused body of believers, with servant-hearted leadership and volunteers who love the Lord. With the new energy and gifting of Pastor Chris, Mt. Hope is already experiencing growth and deeper commitment as we renew emphasis on prayer, relationship with Christ, and community.
Mt. Hope is blessed with a beautiful property, and we have many opportunities to share our facilities. Over the years, several smaller churches have also met in our building and we have opened our facilities to Alcoholic Anonymous, Boys Scouts of America, and, until recently, a local cooperative pre-school. We host outdoor events with other local churches, and maintain a community garden during the summer months.
Mt. Hope has a dedicated core group of members who desire to serve the Lord in our church and wider community. We pray, grow and serve together, as we seek to follow God’s will. We hope you will come and be a part too!
