The beautiful Hopewell Mennonite Church building will be demolished unless funds can be raised to secure it's walls and prevent them from pushing out into collapse.
Hopewell was originally Second Reformed Church, a church plant out of First Reformed Church in 1898. One of the influential members of the church at that time was the president of the Reading Railroad, who commissioned many of the beautiful stained glass windows to made in Munich, Germany and imported. Most visitors to the building typically gasp as they enter the sanctuary for the first time and view the incredible beauty of these windows.
Because the building is condemned until repairs can be made, the members of Hopewell currently attend St James Parish of Reading City Church. If the money can be raised, Hopewell will become the 3rd parish of Reading City Church and will be filled with life for generations to come as RCC seeks to make a significant impact on the needs & improvement of Reading.
