How long does a service last?
There is no set dismissal time for our worship services, but they usually last around one hour.
Are masks required?
Masking is not required to attend service. If one wishes to wear a face covering, he/she is free to do so. He/she will not be looked down upon or treated differently. Likewise, if a person does not wish to mask, they are free to do that as well. He/she will not be looked down upon or treated differently.
What kind of music do you have?
Our services are traditional in style, singing mostly hymns.
What should I wear?
There isn't a dress code at New Hope. We are much more concerned about what's going on inside a person than what a person looks like on the outside. The dress at New Hope is casual, and at a given service you will see people wearing anything from jeans to slacks to dresses to T shirts. Just wear something comfortable and appropriate.
How early should I arrive?
Arrive a couple of minutes early and come on in.
What about my kids?
We love kids. Kids and teens are welcome in the service or, if you prefer, childcare is provided for children from birth to 5 years old.
What are the sermons like?
Pastor Jeff bases his sermons on the biblical text, with an emphasis on practical application. You can hear past sermons on our sermon page. The church has also begun a Youtube channel.
Will I be asked to give money?
If you are a guest at New Hope, we don't ask you to give any money. Just come and worship with us. If you like New Hope and decide to make it your church home, we believe giving to God through the church is the right thing to do as part of the church family.
