The New Testament tells us what a worship service should contain: the reading and teaching of the Scripture, the singing of songs, hymns, and spiritual songs, and the prayers and other worship offerings of the people. That’s what we try to do each Lord’s Day. Yes, we use some modern technologies to help us do it, but those ancient, precious activities are still what it’s basically all about. We are the performers, and our Father is our audience. We’d love for you to come speak, sing, and listen to God with us. Our main worship service is each Sunday, the Lord’s Day, at 10:30 in the morning.
For millennia, since the time of Moses, God has spoken through the written word. We accept the sixty-six books of the Bible as the very Word of God, accurate and authoritative in all that it teaches. We believe that meditating on that written word is the wellspring of spiritual growth and the foundation for all practical Christian living. That’s why we spend so much time mulling over its lines and pages.
Our primary times for concentrated small-group Bible study are Sunday mornings at 9:00 (classic Southern Baptist Sunday School, like we’ve been doing since 1929), and Tuesday evenings at 6:30 (making our way methodically, curiously, joyfully, through the Old Testament).
We also meet off-campus at the home of one of our members from time to time.
Making and growing disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ is not really so much a distinct ministry as a priority that drives all our ministries at FBCD. Yet we do still engage in specific activities, especially on Monday nights, targeted at finding those who do not yet know Jesus as Lord and introducing him to those people. For more information, please call or text Pastor Chris at 410-599-9821, or email him at [email protected].
Loss is an inevitable part of life. We have a group of people who help each other find believing and healing ways to come to grips with the pain of losing a loved one. Come and heal with us!
food for thought
Hungry, homeless kids are never what we want to think about. Yet Dundalk Elementary School has numerous children in precisely this predicament. For some, the free lunch they get at school is the only reliable source of nutrition they have. Food for Thought Baltimore is a local program operating on the idea that kids learn better when they’re better fed, and seeking to bridge the weekend gap, when children may go for a couple of days without a reliable food source. Working with the administration of the school, our members pack groceries into bags for kids to get them some food when they need it. Homelessness is a massive problem requiring far more than this, but at least we can help a few children in our neighborhood. Come help us help them!
The grand old building we meet in is actually the oldest designated worship space in Dundalk, and we thank God for it. Still, maintaining it and decorating it take some work and some resources. If fixing things, painting things, mowing things, hanging things, and that sort of thing would be your thing, your help is welcome! Call us and we’ll put you to work.
