What to expect when you visit

If you are planning to visit New Hope Baptist Church for the first time, here are a few things that you might like to know.

Where is the church?
Our church is located at 110 South Main Street in Black Oak, Arkansas.  We are right on the Highway in the center of town.

Where do I park?
Parking lots are located near the main entrance.  Handicap parking is available at the main entrance.  Our parking lot is large with additional parking available on either side of the building.

How should I dress?
Your dress is an issue of personal taste.  We certainly do not have a dress code at New Hope Baptist Church.  On any given Sunday you may see some people wearing a tie or a dress, but you will also see lots of people in blue jeans.  We are very casual and encourage you to come as you are.

What about my kids?
Small Group Bible Study is available for all ages from 10:00-10:45 a.m.  Someone will be available at the main entrance to help you find your way around.
•    Nursery:  Located near the sanctuary.  It is in the rear of the building.  Ages Birth-2 years old.
•    Toddlers: There is also a class for these guys.  It is in the rear of the building by the nursery.  Ages 3-4 years old.
•   Children Kindergarten-5th Grade:  There are also a couple different classes for this age group.  The classes are throughout the building and are separated by age.  
•    Youth from 7th - 12th grade:  Meet in the Youth Hang Out, which is just off the fellowship hall in the rear of the building.


Is Sunday School for adults too?
Yes, we have small group Bible study for all ages every Sunday morning from 10:00-10:45 a.m.  Adult classes are located throughout the church.  A church member will be happy to help you find a class that fits you.

Where do I go?
Enter the church through the main entrance, which is the set of doors nearest the New Hope Baptist Church sign.  There should be someone to greet you at the main entrance door.  If not, please ask someone for assistance.  Our members would love to help you find where you need to go.  The church sanctuary is directly through the main entrance doors.

What can I expect?
At New Hope Baptist Church we are a family.   There are many opportunities for worship, fellowship, ministry, and service that will help you grow and strengthen your relationship with Jesus Christ.  You will find a warm and friendly atmosphere for you and your family.  With a heart for God and people, we live and share the truth in Jesus' name.

Our style of worship is primarily traditional hymns.  Of course everything is backed by solid, doctrinal preaching and teaching.

When can I meet the Pastor?
The Pastor and his wife are available after the service.  The pastor will meet you at the main entrance on your way out. 

The pastor is also available throughout the week.  He trys to keep regular office during the week, but you might call ahead to make sure he will be available when you visit.  The church office is located at the back of the sancturary.  You can reach the pastor at (870) 761-3599 on his cell phone. You can also email the church.

We hope you will visit us at New Hope Baptist Church where we strive to be "Christ Centered, Family Focused, and Reaching Out!"
