Driving Apps do not always calculate our location well, so please follow these instructions first.
During the winter season, the roads are cared for in different ways by different municipalities, so please add extra time.
Double check that you have New Hope United Methodist Church and not New Life, which is in Lakeview. We often get confused with the good folks at New Life UMC down on M46.
