Everyone at Spirit of Hope, is a Minister of the Gospel.

Spirit of Hope United Methodist Church is the earliest congregation in Golden Valley, established in 1862 during the American Civil War.  Its first building was the little white church now being used by the Golden Valley Historical Society.  Our current church was built in 1960, with additions in 1965 and 2003.  We have had many changes throughout the years and are excited to see the growth of our children, youth and family ministries, as well as our community outreach ministries.

Open Hearts ~ Our hearts are full of love for our local communities and our world.  Our service reflects that love.

Open Minds ~ We all think in different ways.  But when we work together to serve others we share a common goal.

Open Doors ~ Our doors swing wide, not just to let others in but so that we can all get out to serve our community.

Statement of Call:  We are called by God to be radically inclusive, caring community of faith offering personal and social transformation through Jesus Christ.

Reconciling Statement:  We are a reconciling congregation welcoming people of all sexual orientations.

Climate Statement:  As Christians and Stewards of the Earth, we are called to adopt personal practices and support public policies to combat the climate change crisis.  Spirit of Hope UMC pledges to consider climate impact in its practices and policies.
