Yes. Your children will be checked into a secured area and cared for by ministry servants, parents, and volunteers who love to work with children. Our check-in system will help parents have smooth, swift, and secure check-in and check-out experiences.
Our nursery is open for children ages six months through five years old during Sunday worship services only. Children’s church is open for ages six years through fifth grade, both during Sunday worship services (1st and 3rd ) and on Wednesdays.
During 9:30 a.m. Sunday Morning Bible Study and life groups, the nursery and children’s classes are open for ages three years through twelfth grade. Once you arrive at the church, ask one of our greeters to direct you to the nursery and children’s church.
What should I wear when I attend?
Whether you wear jeans and a t-shirt or a suit and tie, you will fit right in at Forty-fifth Street Baptist Church.
How and when can I join?
Those interested in joining Forty-fifth Street Baptist Church can contact any staff member. The pastor invites those who make decisions during, or prior to, services to step out and share with him and the church family at the end of either worship service. You can schedule an appointment to speak with the pastor or prior to Sunday and your decision will be acknowledged at the end of the service you attend.
How do I contribute financially?
We accept donations by cash, check, bank drafts or online. Contribution envelopes are found in the pew racks or you can contact any usher or the church administrator in the church office who can provide you with envelopes. We believe tithing, or giving, is a part of a believer’s commitment to the Lord and His church. Churches are able to provide ministry, service and blessings to others through the cheerful giving of members and guests. Financial giving is not required but greatly appreciated!
