Hopewell UMC (Faceville Charge) - Southwest


The first record we have of this church organization is in the Quarterly Conference minutes dated May 2, 1892, with Rev. C. B. Ames presiding. It was originally established by a schoolhouse on the property of Mr. William Mitchell in the Florida Conference, Tallahassee District, Concord Charge. The first complete church roll was recorded in 1893 and contains the early settlers in this community. The present church stands on property given by James Mitchell in 1903 and was built by the members. It is of Dutch, gothic, colonial design with large windows on either side. Immediately behind the church and connected by a breezeway is the new church school annex built in 1946, and dedicated by Rev. Weyman R. Cleveland, then pastor of the Faceville Charge.
