Mount Hope Methodist Church, an active place for Christian ministry since 1891, will be auctioned along with its adjacent community center and several acres of thick woodlands Sept. 24 at 2 p.m. The auction will be on site at 1945 Mt. Hope Road.

The Susquehanna Conference of the United Methodist Church owns the Mount Hope Church building, with a bell that still works, an adjacent community building, and approximately eight acres of mature forest land. The auction includes a small cemetery of 10 burial plots next to the chapel.
