Churchwide News


Welcome to THE CENTRAL BAPTIST CHURCH Churchwide Announcements Dashboard, a convenient place to get the latest information about the operating status of the church and information affecting the entire church community.

Current Operating Status

In-Person Worship 

In-person Worship Services have resumed effective March 6, 2022. Virtual services will continue and you can watch us live on YouTube. Pre-worship begins 9:40 am and worship begins 10:00 am, eastern time. Church staff are continuing to work remotely with limited access to church records but are retrieving phone messages and postal mail on a daily basis.

Other Activities

We are continuing to conduct Saturday Church School, Bible study, essential group meetings, and other special activities virtually. Several options to watch or listen to our services and activities are available. E-Giving is available 24/7 to receive tithes and offerings, monetary donations, and other special contributions. 

In-Person Worship Protocol

Sundays @ 10:00 am, ET

“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:16.

In accordance with CDC, state, and local government guidelines, we decided to create a slideshow to share with you the protocols currently in place for safely gathering for in-person worship. We invite you to view the slideshow to familiarize yourself with the gathering protocols before you arrive. We will update these as necessary. If you are unable or not yet ready to participate in congregational worship in-person, please continue to watch or listen to our services from home.

Giving

E-Giving is available 24/7 via Ezekiel online and mobile and Givelify. If you are using an offering envelope, you can deposit your envelope in the Pulaski Street door dropbox. If you decide to mail your donation, please indicate on your check or money order how your funds should be applied, affix the proper postage, and mail your envelope to:

Trustee Office
The Central Baptist Church
2031 W Baltimore St
Baltimore, MD 21223 

Church School

One of the best ways to prevent spreading the coronavirus disease is to avoid being exposed to the virus. Please note that we have moved our Sunday School classes to Saturday. All Saturday School classes are being held virtually only. We remain, however, committed to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20).

Robocalls

Administrative Services sends robocall and text messages to enrolled members when the message is urgent or requires a timely response or action. Robocall messages are delivered to answering machines and voice mail systems if such a system answers the call rather than a person. If the phone rings busy or is not answered, our robocall supplier will try to deliver the message again later. If you did not hear the message clearly or would like to hear it again, you can retrieve the last message delivered by calling (877) 333-9336. If you are a Central member not receiving robocall or text messages but would like to, please click or tap the button below to let us know.

Sunday Bulletin

Due to the virtual reality of today's world, the Sunday Bulletin is available now only in electronic format. The electronic format allows us to communicate a variety of information to diverse audiences who may be interested in or already connected to our ministry. The Sunday Bulletin is the church's primary communication tool for both inreach and outreach. It  helps us articulate the things we deem most important for those participating in our ministry.
