Frequently asked questions

What do in-person services look like?

  • We currently offer a live (music and teaching), in-person service at 11 am on Sundays

  • Pre-registration (click here) is required for the service to ensure we do not exceed our capacity

  • Front doors open 15 minutes before the service

  • Ushers will assist you in located your reserved seat(s)

Do I have to wear a mask?

  • Fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask in the building. We will not be policing individuals or “carding” people to show that they are vaccinated. If you prefer to wear a mask, please feel free to do so. If you have not been vaccinated, we encourage you to follow CDC guidelines and continue to wear a mask.

What safety and health measures are being taken?

  • We will be disinfecting all used spaces and surfaces
  • We will have touchless sanitizing stations set up throughout the building
  • The seat reservation system automatically accounts for socially distanced seating between attendees when a seat is a reserved
  • Coffee/Soda: We know a hot cup of coffee or an ice-cold soda is the best way to prepare for church, but for now, we will not be providing coffee or soda. You are welcome to bring your own! Watch for an update on this in the next couple of weeks!

What if I’m not ready to attend in-person services yet?

Until you feel comfortable attending in person, you are welcome to join us for church at home, an identical online worship experience to our in-person gatherings. Each of our services will be broadcast on Facebook (with chat) and the Church Online platform (no chat). All services can be watched on-demand at https://www.live.newhope.org/

What about kids (toddlers - 5th graders)?

Children's programs start meeting in-person on June 20th, during the 11:00 am service on Sundays. We'll have programs for walking toddlers - 5th graders. Our elementary kids will go to the grade they will attend in the fall. We've taken a few measures to ensure everyone's safety:

  • There will be a limited number of kids in each room. You will need to reserve your child's spot when you get your seats for adult worship service. Details on registration will be released the week of June 1st.
  • All volunteers will be masked as well as kids 3 yrs. old and up. We will continuously monitor guidelines given by government officials as well as the CDC and update accordingly.
We've also taken into account a few things to make sure a fun time is had by all:
  • We'll be playing lots of games, doing interactive activities, and engaging in lots of talking/listening to help everyone get back into the swing of things, promote community, and build trust.
  • We'll schedule a small group of consistent volunteers to create routine and familiarity.
  • We'll be dancing, coloring, memorizing Bible verses, and watching the Bible story to learn more about and grow closer to Jesus.
We will continue to have our Zoom small groups on Sunday mornings at 9:15. These are also a fun, interactive way for kids to participate and socialize with their friends and leaders while they are learning about Jesus. Be sure to check out nhckidstime.com.

What about students (6th through 12th graders)?

Takeover, our Student Mininstry for 6th through 12th graders, meets Sunday nights from 6 – 7:15 pm at the church. 6th-12th graders can join us on Sunday nights two ways:
