We’re are glad you’re here!

Regardless of where you are in life’s journey or where you’ve been, you are welcome at the Pennsylvania Avenue Baptist Church (PABC).


What to Expect?

Visiting a church for the first time can be an intimidating experience. If you are new to PABC, you can expect a warm, friendly environment where people are glad that you’ve come. Our greeters and ushers will greet you and help you get to the right place.
A Sunday at PABC includes a time of joyful worship that includes music that is a mix of traditional hymns and praise songs and inspiring message based on scripture. You can sing along and engage with worship; however, you feel most comfortable. We are confident you will find a suitable place within our friendly, family atmosphere.


Gathering Times

What to wear?

On any given Sunday, you will find people dressed in dresses, suits, jeans, and everything in between. Dress up. Dress down. It doesn’t matter. You are welcome here. But since the Covid-19 pandemic, masks have been an added accessory. If you are worshiping from home then pajamas are fine since you are at home.
