What to Expect

Knowing what to expect before you visit, makes actually visiting much easier. The information below gives you all the information you need to help make your visit a little easier.

How Do I Get There?

We are located at 6211 Murray Dr.

Hanahan, SC 29410 (map)

What Time Does the Service Begin?

The Sunday morning worship service begins at 10:30.

Where Should I Go When I Arrive?

If you plan to attend our morning service, your children have the opportunity to attend children's church or be cared for in the nursery during service. The children's wing is located inside the office entrance. Greeters will help you find the auditorium from there. If you are attending without children or choose to keep them with you during service, you may enter through the auditorium doors.

If you plan to join us for Sunday School (9:45) you will attend a class. We will have greeters ready to show you your class options.

What Is There for My Children?

Nursery and children's church are provided for the 10:30 service. Children's church is offered for children 3yrs-4th grade. Sunday school is held at 9:45 for all ages.

What is the Music Like?

The congregational music is most often led by a worship leader, the Celebration Choir and the Instruments of Praise.  By design and purpose, attenders at HPBC are encouraged to participate in the time of worship through music.  The music for worship services is prayerfully chosen and arranged with the desire to help people worship God, learn Bible truth, fellowship with others, and express their faith in Christ. The style of music varies from stately well-loved hymns to contemporary praise and worship music.  (Sometimes we even throw in a little Southern Gospel!) Whether old or new, all music is in harmony with God's Word and performed in such a way that glorifies God.

What are the Sermons Like?

They usually last 25-35 minutes. Our pastor usually focuses on one passage of Scripture. He seeks to explain it, help us understand it, and then apply it to our lives. Our goal is to both be challenged and leave changed as a result of our time in God’s Word.

How Long is the Service?

Although, the service length is not subject to the clock, they generally last about 75 minutes.

Do I Have to Give any Money?

No. We do pass an offering plate in both services in order for our members to give, but there is no expectation that visitors give anything.

What Should I Wear?

Come as your are.  You will see others in anything from jeans and business casual to suits and ties.  Regardless, you are welcome to wear whatever you feel comfortable in. You will not feel out of place.

Will I be Embarrassed from the Stage?

Absolutely not. We will welcome all guests, but no attention will be drawn to you specifically.

What are the People Like?

With every generation represented, the people are friendly and welcoming.  All races are welcome at HPBC.
