What To Expect

Here’s what you can expect when you visit

We’re glad you’re considering a visit to New Covenant. If it’s your first time with us on a Sunday, we want to make sure you have a good idea of what you could expect.

Quick Essentials

  • We start at 12:00 pm
  • We meet at the South Baptist Church (80 L St • South Boston, MA)
  • We’ll provide care for children up to early elementary age

Where do you meet?
We meet together on Sundays at 12 noon in the South Baptist Church (80 L St • South Boston, MA).

Parking
There is free street parking on Sunday.

Public Transportation
The church is on the corner of L St. and East 4th St.

Bus Route 9 stops at L & Broadway. You can see the church to your left when you step off the bus.

Bus Route 11 will drop you off at L & 8th. It’s a four block walk to the church from there.

How big is the church?
It’s small. No really, it’s really small! We jokingly call ourselves “the smallest church in America”. On any given Sunday there may be 5-6 of us gathered, or as many as 12-15. We long for more faithfulness and increased numbers of people to join us in worship. We pray for it regularly. We also pray for growth in Christian maturity for those who are here. But don’t let our numerical size fool you, we have a lot to offer, namely the gospel, the greatest message in the universe! And we promise you’ll hear the gospel taught and applied from the Scriptures when you visit us.

What about my kids?
We love having our children join us for as much of our gathering as possible because we’re committed to every generation worshipping together. Your kids, of any age, are welcome to stay with the adults for the entire service, but we do offer child care for younger children during the sermon.

What do I wear?
If you’ll wear it out, it’s probably ok. If you want to get decked out in a 3-piece suit, do it! If you’d rather wear jeans, then you’re in good company.

What’s going to happen?
We are thoroughly, and unapologetically, Bible believing. And we firmly believe that God Himself regulates His worship through His Word. This means that true worship is only that which is commanded by God in His Word. False worship is anything other than what is commanded. In other words our worship, from first to last, is regulated by the Word of God.

The most important issue in worship is answering the question: What does God want/require of us?

We believe God has answered this question and told us in the Bible how to worship Him.

So when we gather to worship the Lord, our services are under the authority of His Word, directed by His commands, with utter dependence upon His grace, through the Spirit, to empower us to:

  • pray (1 Timothy 2:1,8)
  • read, sing, hear, and preach God’s Word (Colossians 3:16; 1 Timothy 4:13; 2 Timothy 4:1-2)
  • fellowship with one another (Hebrews 3:12-14; 10:24-25)
  • receive the Lord’s Supper (1 Corinthians 11:23-32)
  • carry out the baptism of new believers (Matthew 28:19)
