Point Hope United Methodist Church was established in 2001 in response to the population growth of northern Mount Pleasant. The South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church was committed to spiritually serving the individuals and families living in this area.
In our early years, Point Hope worshipped at Jennie Moore Elementary School. In 2007, our congregation relocated to our present location off Park West Boulevard. While our current space was not originally built to be a church, we have transformed the building to be a welcoming environment with a spacious sanctuary, a fellowship hall, nursery, church offices, and classrooms. As our church grows, we continue to enhance our worship space to accommodate our congregation’s needs. We are proud of our church home and see God’s hands at work every day.
Our doors are open to those seeking a place to worship, connect and serve. Our hope is that residents of the neighborhoods in northern Mount Pleasant and the surrounding areas will feel the warm and inviting environment at Point Hope as soon as they walk through our doors. Point Hope is a place where individuals and families can discover the love of God, the grace of Jesus Christ and the presence of the Holy Spirit.
In 2018, with the help of a generous donor, Point Hope erected a beautiful steeple atop of our building. The steeple serves as a beacon to the surrounding community and a reminder to all that we are here to serve God as our eyes are drawn upward toward the heavens.
Point Hope has grown to serve dozens of families who worship together, connect with others and serve God with joy and devotion. We have something for everyone, from youth and senior programs to prayer groups and breakfast gatherings. We offer many opportunities to volunteer and connect each Sunday and throughout the week.
We invite you to become a part of Point Hope United Methodist Church.
