More History of Hopewell Church of God from our records:
In surmising this historical record one realizes that what we see today as we look at this place of worship has been given to us through the sacrificial, cooperative, and consecrated efforts of both men and women for 100 years. Let each of us give them the honor due their efforts and faithfulness and then lift our lips in jubilant praise to the one that made the Hopewell Church of God a reality, and sing "To God Be the Glory".
(100th anniversary history was written by Mrs. Homer (Stella) Dewald and Mrs. Chalmer (Ina) King and presented by Frank Lupton for the Centennial Celebration in 1958)
