We enjoy opportunities to gather together over shared interests. Here are our ongoing fellowship opportunities. All are welcome!
JOY (Just Older Youth)
The JOY senior adult ministry meets every month (except August) on the third Thursday at 10:30 a.m. in the Family Life Center for a time of devotion, singing, mission and service opportunities, fellowship, and other interesting activities. A delicious meal is served following the meeting (donations encouraged). In addition, other special activities are routinely planned, often including excursions to area sites of interest.
Anyone 55 and older is welcome to join this energetic group! For more information, contact the Church Office.
“Happy Knitters” Prayer Shawl Ministry
The “Happy Knitters” are a group of dedicated women who knit and crochet prayer shawls to be given to patients at the Levine and Dickson Hospice House in Huntersville, NC. Shawls are also given to ill members of Hopewell and, upon request, to families and close friends of Hopewell members. This ministry has been very active ever since it was organized in February, 2009.
Anyone who knits or crochets is invited to join the “Happy Knitters.” Monthly meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month from September through May beginning at 1 p.m. in the Jeff Lowrance Room (A-12) of the Administrative Building. Participants are also welcome to work on shawls at home if you are unable to attend the meetings.
Donations of yarn (or money to purchase yarn with) are always welcome from anyone who does not knit or crochet, but would like to help with this unique ministry. For more information about the “Happy Knitters,” please contact the Church Office.
“Walking Angels” Group
Walking is one of the best things you can do for your mind, body, and spirit, so consider joining this health-conscious group! The Family Life Center is open from 8:30 – 10 a.m. every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for this time of walking fellowship. Anyone is welcome to join at any time and come as often as you can. For more information, contact Charlotte Sailers.
