A Word from the Pastor

Welcome Friends, Grace and peace to you from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ through the power and the presence of the Holy Spirit in this place. I welcome you to Hopewell Reformed Church, especially if you are here for the first time. We seek to be a church that knows Christ and makes him known in everything we do. We pray that you experience that today.

These words are my greeting most Sunday mornings in worship. It is my greeting to you on this web site. It reflects who we are, what we are about and my hope for you this day. We are all on a spiritual journey and I invite you to explore that at HRC making connections with the church and with Christ. I am glad that you are here.

Taylor Holbrook, Lead Pastor
