Welcome to Poplar Heights…
You are always welcome at Poplar Heights Baptist Church. We are in an exciting new season of ministry, and we hope you’ll plan on joining us for worship this Sunday. We offer ministries throughout the week for all ages. On Sunday mornings we have Bible Study Groups for every stage of life at 9:00am and worship for the whole family at 10:15am. Our worship services typically offer a contemporary style of music led by our live worship band. On Sunday and Wednesday evenings we have further ministry opportunities for our children and students, while our adults gather for worship or prayer.
This is an exciting time at Poplar Heights, and we would love to have you and your family be a part of what God is doing. We hope our website provides you some basic information necessary to learn a little about who we are and to plan your visit with us. We look forward to meeting you soon.
What to Expect…
Thanks for your interest in Poplar Heights Baptist Church. Whether you plan ahead or just drop in on Sunday, please look for a greeter to welcome you at the door. If you have come for our Sunday School Bible classes, a greeter will help you find the appropriate class for you and your family. If you come for the worship service at 10:15 a.m., feel free to join us in a time of fellowship over a cup of coffee as we gather for worship in the main sanctuary. We also encourage you to visit the information center located in the foyer. Here you can find information about upcoming activities, ministries, events, service, and fellowship opportunities. Poplar Heights offers a comfortable and welcoming environment. We know your first time at a new church can prompt some questions. The “What to Expect” section below includes some of the more common questions.
How do I get to Poplar Heights?
Our church is located at 1980 Hollywood Drive in Jackson, just 1 1/2 blocks south of Interstate 40 (exit 79). Click here for directions.
Tell me about the worship services?
Poplar Heights offers one morning worship service on Sundays at 10:15 a.m. and an evening worship service on Sundays at 6:00 p.m. A variety of blended worship music is enjoyed at Poplar Heights, combining traditional hymns along with praise and worship music. Children and youth participate in our morning service along with adults. Nursery care is provided for infants through children in pre-Kindergarten.
What’s available for my kids?
Sunday school is available for children and youth of all ages, birth through high school graduation. The atmosphere is dynamic, safe and age-appropriate…and most important, it’s fun. During the morning worship service, childcare is available for children ages newborn through pre-K. We call this childcare “extended session.” Children are given a snack, a short lesson and have play time during extended session.
What should I expect in church?
From the moment you pull into the parking lot, we strive to make you feel at home. Our greeter team will help you find anything you need, including a place for your kids, no matter what age they are. Say hello to the folks around you or remain anonymous if you prefer.
What are the services like?
The services are designed to be engaging, understandable, and compelling. On any given Sunday, you’ll hear a mix of different musical styles from a Praise team, choir, and live band. Musical styles include a blend of contemporary worship songs and traditional hymns.
You will hear a message with practical understanding to real-life issues like marriage, parenting, finances, decision-making, emotions and faith by calling us to Christ-centered living that reflects the Gospel’s work in us. Ultimately, our pastor will seek to draw you into a faithful and growing relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.
