A Welcome for First Time Visitors
The members of the Morgan Park Baptist Church (located on a small island of land at 110th and Bell Avenue – two blocks east of Western Avenue) would like to welcome you to attend our church services held on Sundays at 11 AM. We welcome you to enter the church via either set of bright orange doors facing South Bell Avenue – just to the left of our outdoor sign (turn left for our sanctuary and right for our parlor). However, if you require additional assistance, we welcome you to enter the church on the north side of our building where we have a handicap ramp (and handicapped parking) in addition to a chair lift. Bathrooms can be found in the basement as well as near the entrance of our school building (walk through the parlor to the school annex).
You will be greeted with a warm welcome from a cheerful Christian church family. We are a close-knit group and hope to add you as a member of our loyal family. Our members range in age from 2 to 83, with programs and events for everyone! Our church has been in the Beverly/Morgan Park area for over 130 years. We are the oldest church in Morgan Park. Our congregation is roughly 50% African-American and 50% Caucasian. Our pastor for the past nine years is Rev. Dr. Thomas Aldworth, who lives in Morgan Park. He is an award-winning author, a distinguished teacher and well-known preacher, delving deeply each Sunday into the human and the divine.
If you would like to visit or chat with us during the week, we welcome you to the church office (773-445-9443 or you may call Pastor Thomas directly on his cell phone: 708-557-0400). You can enter the church office just to the right of the outdoor sign on the south side of the church. Please see our church calendar for the most up-to-date events! We can’t wait to meet you!
Rev. Dr. Thomas Aldworth, Pastor
