Services are held at 8:30 and 11:00 on Sunday mornings, and 6:30 Sunday evenings.

First time at Hopeful?

We're so glad you've decided to visit us! You'll find a list of commonly asked questions below. Please don't hesitate to send a message or give us a call at (386) 752-4135 if you have any more questions!



How do I get there?

Hopeful Baptist's main campus is located southeast of town in Lake City, Florida. You can find detailed directions here


What should I wear?

Hopeful Baptist has a "come as you are" atmosphere. You will see some dressed up; some dressed casual. We have no expectations for attire.


Where do my kids go?

Nursery and Kidz church are provided during each service, as well as the Sunday School hour. Follow the signs to the left of the worship center to check your children into our secure nursery or kids building.  Of course, you're welcome to bring your children to worship with you (but they'll probably enjoy our age-level ministries much more!). Middle and high school students meet in our G3 Student Center, located on the northeast end of our main campus.

What is a Sunday service like?

Our Sunday services offer powerful live worship and Biblical teaching that is relevant to your everyday life. Take a look at our media page to get a feel for what a service is like. Each service lasts about an hour. 


Be sure to say "Hello!"

After the service, be sure to stop by the Welcome Center where you will receive a free gift, and have the chance to ask any questions about how you can get further plugged into Hopeful Baptist Church.
