What to Expect

Need to Know?
Many people have questions when they first visit a church. We want you to know this is not anything you need to worry about. We are a simple, relational church. People often remark how friendly New Plainview Baptist is. Listed below you will find some of the basic information you will want to know before arriving.
 
Getting to the Church
New Plainview is located at 3770 Old Highway 100 in Tallapoosa. 

How Do I Dress?
Dress comfortably. While some attendees do wear their “Sunday best,” most folks wear casual and comfortable clothes on Sunday morning. Don’t worry about what you wear--just come prepared to have a wonderful time of worship and fellowship!
If I visit will I be put on the spot or called out?
No. We do try to be friendly and warm and chances are someone will say hello to you if they do not know you, but it is never our objective to embarrass you or call attention to you. We will ask that you fill out a small card that will allow us to get more information to you. If you don’t want to, that’s cool, we still appreciate you checking us out.

What Do I Bring?
A Bible will help you to follow along in worship and in Bible Study. If you have a Bible, bring it with you to church. Our pastor refers to the Bible often during his messages. If you don’t have a Bible, or forgot to bring your Bible, Bibles are available for free.

Where Do My Children Go?
We have excellent preschool and children’s ministries. There is a group time for children Pre-K to 9 years old during the main worship service.
​ There is a "wiggle room" located in our lobby and nursery. 

What About Security?
We take security seriously. Security measures and personnel are on campus to look out for the safety of every attendee. 
What is the music like?
In a world that has drawn a line between contemporary and traditional worship, we seem to walk the line. We strongly prefer congregational singing, which emphasizes the gathered body singing praise to God with one voice, over performed music, which tends to spotlight the abilities of some while encouraging passivity in the rest.
Are you Affiliated with Any Denomination?
We are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. This affiliation allows us to take part and support the largest missions organizations in the world as well as the second largest relief effort.
