I’m Not a Baptist… Can I Still Attend?

What’s here for my kids?
Starting with children church, there is something special for every age child from birth through high school! At every service there are safe, clean, and highly staffed teachers for children four years old and under. For children four years old through Third grade there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes on Sunday morning and Wednesday evening. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.
How should I dress?
There is not a dress code at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church of Powder Springs for members or guests. Church is certainly not a fashion show but many of our members dress in a way fitting to meet with any King or Dignitary, after all we are here to worship the King of Kings. Our ministry leaders dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress — the men in a dress shirt and dress slacks, typically with a tie, and the women in modest dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable during your visit here at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church of Powder Springs!
Are there services at other times?
Yes. We have two Sunday service that begins at 7:30 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. Again, in this service you’ll enjoy special music as well as a challenging and helpful message from Pastor Steed. We also meet on Tuesday Morning at 10:30 a.m. and Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. for a mid-week Bible study, prayer and Young adult Bible study at 7:30 p.m. If you can’t be our guest on Sunday morning, we hope you’ll visit with us during another service time.
Am I expected to participate in the offering?
No. We don’t invite you to New Hope Missionary Baptist Church of Powder Springs for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. Please don’t feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
