Updates & Accommodations at New Hope Baptist Church

Church services

In compliance with Governor Mills' mandated ban on gatherings of 10 or more people, we will not be holding Sunday school or church services until the ban is lifted (including Youth Group, Kid's Bible Club).  We love and care about the safety and health of our church family and community! We will continue to serve and minister while making accommodations for social distancing standards. Please check our page often for updates and news.

recorded sermons

Remaining in contact with you is still a priority! Pastor John will be recording regular messages of encouragement PLUS weekly sermons during this time. They will be available from our  YouTube channel, here on our website's sermon page and posted to our Facebook page!


Community Food Pantry is still on for the 1st and 3rd Saturday each month. At this time, instead of having people crowd inside, we’ll ask you to wait outside and we will bring your groceries out to you. If it’s raining or snowing, you can wait in your vehicle and we’ll come to you.

But here's the thing - God is not surprised by any of this! And He still has work to do in Dexter, Maine. In fact, at New Hope Baptist, we're praying and looking for ways He would have us serve the people of our community during a time when many of them are feeling fearful and isolated. 

The problem? If our own budget is squeezed because people are staying home and not giving, we won't be able to minister to these needs.

Here is one simple thing you can do to help - sign up for recurring online giving. [Keep reading...]
