Q. What can I expect when I visit New Hope for the first time?

A. You can expect a free Caribbean cruise for two, plus a new car. Just kidding, but that would be fun! Actually, you can expect a contemporary meeting place (it’s actually a really cool performing arts theater) filled with everyday friendly people from every walk of life, all kinds of music, vibrant worship, sound Biblical teaching, and lots of artistic expression.

Q: What is your inclement weather policy?

“How can you know if Sunday worship services, Sunday school, Wednesday night activities and other activities have been cancelled when there’s bad weather?” 

The fastest and most reliable way to get that information is by checking the homepage or by calling the church at (865-932-4673).

Here’s how the process works:

  • A decision about the Sunday worship service will be made by 6am and that information will be posted on the church website and on the NH Facebook page.
  • Closing/cancellation information is also available on the local TV stations. However, sometimes that information is delayed, due to the large number of churches calling in to report their closings.
  • Depending upon the severity of the weather, if there are Sunday evening events scheduled, a decision about the Sunday evening activities may be delayed until later Sunday morning. Should that be the case, the closing/cancellation information will be posted on the website and NH Facebook page.

The same process is used for closing/cancellation decisions during the week, although the time schedule obviously varies depending upon the situation.

  • We encourage you to watch for any LIVE FB from Pastors Tom & Brenda.
