United Methodist Women

The Pancake and Sausage Supper is the main fundraiser for the United Methodist Women. The Women have always been very active in mission work. They prepare and serve funeral dinners at the church for Hopewell families. For many years they have given tins of homemade cookies and candies to the elderly and shut-ins at Christmas time. Fresh fruit is given to diabetics who are unable to eat the homemade goodies. Christmas gifts are purchased for families in the church and community who are in need. The ladies gave the Hopewell dads candy bars for Father's Day.

Women of all ages are invited to attend Hopewell Women's Meetings which are held the first Wednesday evening of most months. The meetings consist of a business meeting, a program, and refreshments.

United Methodist Men

The Hopewell Men's Group provides scriptural studies and provides service and social activities. Meetings are held the third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. and the men take turns cooking dinner. The men make homemade noodles to sell as a fund raiser. They have been buying flowers to give to the mothers for Mother's Day at the worship service. The men have also done the Laundromat ministry and various projects around Children's Hospital. The men's group meets on the third Monday of most months.

Since 2016, the Men's Group has been in charge of the annual Ham and Bean Dinner that is held in October. The dinner is eaten in the church basement. Each year gospel music is provided in the sanctuary for entertainment. A free will offering is taken to give to the musicians. The musicians serve as the judges of our cornbread contest. Contestants may make their cornbread from a mix or from their favorite recipe. First, second and third place winners are awarded ribbons. The dinner menu is ham and bean soup, hot dogs with an assortment of toppings, fried potatoes, cornbread (from the contest), dessert and lemonade.

MYF

The youth fellowship is directed by Rebekah and Eric Hess. Meetings are held at the church on Sunday afternoons as scheduled. The youth participate in many projects throughout the year. In March they help serve the Pancake and Sausage Supper. Hiding the candy-filled Easter eggs at the home of David and Jenny Lamp (formerly the Muller's home) for the egg hunt is a yearly event. The Youth present an Easter Sunrise Service and provide a breakfast following the early service. Some of the members are active in the Fifth Sunday Mission work. Social activities that the youth enjoy are Dodgeball tournaments at the Groveport Rec Center, kayaking and ziplining and other activities that the group decides to do. Members are encouraged to bring their friends to MYF.
