WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?

In short, we are a Christ-centered, Gospel-proclaiming community that exists for the purpose of making Jesus known on the Seacoast of New Hampshire and beyond. To learn more about what we believe, you can read our Doctrinal Statement by clicking here.

WHAT TIMES ARE YOUR SUNDAY SERVICES?

Each Sunday during the fall, winter, and spring we have two services – at 8:30am and 10:45am. Each service lasts approximately one hour. We also offer Sunday School classes for children, youth, and adults at 9:45am. During the summer months we also have two services, but at adjusted times – with one being at 8:00am and the other at 10:00am. Click here for more information on visiting.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I VISIT?

We are a church of about 350-400 regular attendees that range from newborns, to young families, to those in retirement. We are a warm and family-friendly church that genuinely cares for visitors. Sunday worship services consist of times of corporate and personal prayer, Bible readings, a blended style of music (ranging from organ and piano to drums and acoustic guitars), and Gospel-centered preaching. Our deacons, ushers, and/or three pastors would love to meet you when you visit!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Being a traditional, historic New England church 200 years old, you will see many men in coat and ties and women in dresses. But you will also see many others in jeans or casual attire. Therefore, no matter your fashion preferences or current situation that may affect your attire, rest assured in knowing that you are welcome here as you are!

WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN?

We have a variety of offerings for your children, ranging from 0 to 18 years of age. During both Sunday morning services, we offer nursery care for 0-2 year olds. We also offer Sunday School classes age-specific for preschool children (2-5 year olds) and for Elementary-aged children (Grades 1-5) at 9:45am. Click here for more information on our children’s offerings. 
 
We also offer Sunday AM Small Groups for students in Grades 6-12, also at 9:45am. These small groups consist of ~5 students (same age and gender), have 1-2 adult leaders, and are a time of Bible study, encouragement, and prayer. Click here for information on those small groups.

WHAT ABOUT PARKING?

There are two primary parking lots to the side and behind the main building as you drive in. If those two lots are full, there are overflow parking options on either side of the common on Rte. 88 and even across the street in the Lincoln Akerman School parking lot. There are parking attendants located outside who will be happy to direct you and help you with parking!

DO YOU HAVE ANY SMALL GROUP OPTIONS FOR ADULTS?

Great question! Yes! To learn all about our small group ministry, please click here or reach out to Pastor Grant Winnes (gwinnes@hffbc.org).

HOW CAN I GET CONNECTED?

I’m so glad you asked! Our church offers many ways to get involved in the goings-on at the church and to get connected with others. Whether you’re looking for something age-specific, gender-specific, focused on serving, music, or just looking to learn more in general, we encourage you to either contact us or explore the Connect page. You an also stay up-to-date and connected when you’re away from the church through our multiple social media accounts.
