Welcome to Forty-fifth Street

We are so thankful that God led you to our on-line church home today! Prayerfully you will see that something special happens during our worship from the images and videos of our activities and fellowship. I hope this visit to our website will whet your appetite or spark your curiosity to one day join us in corporate worship. The fact is that one day in the presence of God in honest worship can make a real difference in your life.

Our prayer is that you will want to spend more than just this one visit with us…that while here you will sense the love of God and understand our three-fold purpose to introduce people to the love of Christ, to teach people about the life of the church and Christ, and to celebrate life with other people who love Christ. We will regularly post our sermons and Bible studies if you are unable to be with us in person, so be sure to bookmark this page! Remember we’re just a click away!

This website contains information about current events and ministries in our church. It also has past sermons and sermon notes. If it’s not too much trouble, please take a moment and send us a message or simply your address to thefriendliestchurch@gmail.com  so that we can have a record of your visit and keep you posted on upcoming events.

If we may be of assistance to you, don’t hesitate to contact us by phone, email or in person.

Prayerfully, after this online visit, you will want to put us to the test and experience why we are the friendliest church from the parking lot to the pulpit!
