Welcome to Third Baptist!
We’d love for you to worship with us, connect with us, and serve with us. Stop by, you’re always welcome.
Ready to visit? Here's what you need to know.
Location. 620 North Grand Blvd., at the corner of Grand and Washington. We're in the Grand Center arts & education district. Our neighbors include the Symphony's Powell Hall, Fox Theatre, Jazz St. Louis, St. Louis University, Grandel Theater, Sheldon Concert Hall, a VA hospital, museums, art galleries, restaurants, and a newly renovated business hotel. A short walk leads to the Loft District that attracts residents from young singles to retirees.
Parking. Use the parking lot on the east side of the church along the north side of Washington, which is staffed by an attendant, or the fenced south parking lot across Washington.
Building Entrance. From the parking area, use the handicap accessible ramp access door on the southeast corner of the church. On weekdays, use the fenced parking lot and please use the Church Office entrance on Washington.
Timing. People gather around 9:30 Sunday morning for coffee and doughnuts in Fellowship Hall. Greeters will direct you to an age-appropriate Sunday School which begins about 9:45 or 10:00. Worship service is at 11:00, followed by fellowship in the adjacent Pillsbury Threshold. There's no dress code; come as you are.
Children. If you're bringing children, consult our Preschool page for sign-in procedures and the care we provide. For older ones in your family, see the Children and Youth pages, and a variety of Bible study classes for Adults.
Communion. Observed usually on the first Sunday of each month. Who can participate? Everyone. All are welcome at the table.
Wednesday Services. We gather at 5:00pm for a fellowship dinner ($7.00 for adults). At 6:00pm, we have a Bible study for adults led by our pastor, and Godly Play for children. The Bible study also is available online via Zoom.
Congregation. We're affiliated with American Baptist Churches USA, and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. Our people are diverse in terms of age, race, ethnicity, national origin, and more. But we have this in common: We are bound together by our love, and by our commitment to Jesus Christ. Our programs and ministries grow and improve, preparing us for service to the community and the world.
