The church office is available Monday - Friday from 9AM - 4PM.

Does New Hope offer transportation for services?

Yes, please call the church at 812-425-3498.

How should I dress to attend worship?

No matter what your personal style, you'll be comfortable at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church. If you prefer dressy, business, or casual attire, chances are there will be others dressed much like you no matter when you visit.

Sure, Sunday mornings are a time when many prefer to dress up a bit, but even if jeans are more your style, you'll be right at home with us. Naturally, Wednesdays are slightly more casual than Sunday morning, but dress up for these if you prefer.

Preschoolers and children learn while they play. We encourage hands on play so that children are learning through all their senses. Painting and other messy activities are also encouraged, so use your own judgment about how dressed up your child is while at church.

Our Middle and High School students usually dress casually on Sunday and Wednesday evenings because games and sporting events are often held outside and sometimes involve getting messy.

Where should I park?

Street parking is available and in the parking lot in the rear of the church.

Handicap accessible parking is located in the rear of the church.

A wheelchair accessible ramp is available on the side of the building.
