There has been a Free Methodist congregation in Perry since 1860. Just as the Civil War was about to break, a small group of Christians in the Perry area were removed from their church for taking a stand against slavery and discrimination towards the poor. This group of Christians eventually became the First Free Methodist Society of Perry, NY. In the 1970's the congregation changed its name to Coleman Memorial.
We are now Hope Chapel.
We have a sure hope that God is able to redeem our broken pasts.
We have a sure hope that God can work through us now, in the present.
We have a sure hope that God is our future, even beyond the grave.
