Worship Services


Sunday School at 9:30 a.m.

Sunday morning Bible study offers a great opportunity for participants of all ages to dialog in small-group settings. St. Charles Avenue Baptist Church offers classes for all ages, including several options for adults. A full listing of classes is available here.

Worship at 11:00 a.m.

The worship style is classical but not stuffy. This is a "high Baptist" church; we follow the Christian year and, usually, the lectionary readings for the day. The worship service lasts about an hour. We celebrate communion the first Sunday of every month. Many folk ask what they should wear to worship. We are an eclectic church, especially when it comes to fashion. On Sunday mornings you will find some folk in casual attire while others are "dressed to the nines." Parking is available along both sides of St. Charles and Broadway and along all side streets in the area.
