Mission: This mission team is comprised of Senior High youth and adults from the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church. Team members are committed, adventurous people desiring growth in their walk with Christ. For one week, the team participates in construction work during the day. Then, for three evenings the youth run a Children's Bible Club to bring the name of Jesus Christ to others.B This year we'll be in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, assisting with construction of their 500 year flood recovery program. Some of the places where we have ministred: the Dominican Republic, South Dakota - Sioux Native Americans, McAllen, Texas/ Reynosa, Mexico, West Virginia, North Carolina - Cherokee Native Americans, Allentown, PA, Grand Canyon, Arizona - the Navajo, Nashua, New Hampshire, Windsor, North Carolina (Hurrican Floyd), Preston, Oklahoma - Creek/Cheerokee Native Americans, Grand Rapids, Michigan, Birmingham, Alabama, Winthrop, Maine, Neon, Kentucky, Gulfport and Ocean Springs, Mississippi (Katrina recovery). History: Mount Hope United Methodist Church has a history that spans two centuries and is similar to the development of the nation. The Church in Aston had its beginning in the Colonial era and is continuing the ministry of Jesus Christ in the computer age. Founded in 1807, just 31 years after the formation of the United States, Mount Hope was among the nation's early churches. Many of the founders of Mount Hope lived in the area of the Church before the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The area was close to the site of the Battle of the Brandywine in the early period of the American Revolutionary War. Gen. George Washington's Continental Army, which was retreating in defeat from the battle, passed through the area enroute to Philadelphia. Gen. Cornwallis' British forces and mercenary Hession troops camped in the vicinity of the present Church with Washington's forces taking refuge closer to Chester. The beginning of Mount Hope was associated closely with the development of the Methodist denomination in America. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Church in England, called on followers to help establish the movement in America. Francis Asbury, a young preacher, and two others volunteered to go to help the growth of Methodism in America. Asbury visited the young congretation in Aston on five occasions between 1785 and 1810. He visited at the home of Aaron Mattson, who organized the group and had meetings in his home in Red Hill Road, northeast of the present Church site. Mattson donated an acre of ground near his home in 1807 for construction of the original church building, known as Mount Chapel. The original small, white stone building was replaced by a gray stone church adjacent to the present sanctuary. The growth of the congregation required a larger church building which was constructed during 1898-1899. Residential development in Aston Township during and after World War II changed the area from rural to suburban. The influx of people created tremendous growth in the size of the Mount Hope congregation and Sunday School. The present sanctuary was consecrated on November 13, 1960 with construction of the new education facilities following. A second floor was added to the education wing in 1971. The Church is presently in a new period of membership growth under the pastoral leadership of the Rev. Dr. Thomas McGill, senior pastor.B The growth is occurring in both numbers and spiritual fervor. The members of the congregation are looking to the future when a very special historic occasion will occur, Mount Hope will observe its 200th anniversary in 2007.
