Visiting any church for the very first time can be a tough experience. We want to put you at ease.

We hope you experience great music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and "at home"! Here are a few answers to your questions and what you might expect on your first visit.
When you arrive at New Manna you may want to visit our Main Building where one our hospitality greeters will meet you and direct you to the right classes and services for you and your family. They can also answer other questions you may have.
We have several different Adult Sunday School classes located around our church campus. One of which, we are sure you will find yourself at home in. We also have classes available for your teens and children.
The main preaching service usually consist of a great song service and then followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Shirley.
Where do I take my children?
During every service are nursery is open and staffed with friendly, knowledgeable ladies that will care for your child. Our nursery is available for children newborn through 3 years of age. We also provide an area for mothers who may need that private time with their baby. When you leave your child with our nursery, you will be giving a number that will be assigned to your child. If there arises any issues with your child and you are needed, that number will be posted on our two boards located in our main auditorium. We want you to feel comfortable leaving your child in our nursery so that you can enjoy all the New Manna has to offer you.

Class usually last for just under an hour and then they will join back in the Main Auditorium for worship service. You may ask one our hospitality greeters to direct you to their class.
Am I Expected to Participate in the Offering?
No. We don't invite you to New Manna Baptist Church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God's Word, and a place where you can grow in God's grace. Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
What Bible do you use?
We use the Authorized King James version in all areas of our church and its ministries. We believe that the Bible (King James Version) is the complete revelation from God and its contents are verbally inspired. We stand firmly on this belief that holy men of God, qualified by the leadership of the Holy Spirit, wrote in obedience to the divine command and were kept from all error, so that the Bible can actually be classified as the very Word of God and the books of the Bible are of divine origin and authority.
