When do you worship? Our worship service is on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM.

What is worship like? We begin by lighting a candle as a reminder that Christ is present with us. In a typical worship service, we read the scripture, share our prayer concerns and celebrations with each other, sing a variety of music and enjoy music from our choir, spend time in silence, and consider God’s word through a sermon. We follow the liturgical year, observing seasons such as Advent and Lent, and our pastor wears a robe—yet worship is intimate and interactive, with all members helping to lead on a regular basis (including our children!). Learn more about worship here.

What should I wear? You will see people in everything from dresses and ties to jeans and shorts—so come just as you are comfortable!

Is there childcare available? Yes! We have two nurseries during every worship service -- one for babies (birth – 18 months) and one for toddlers (18 mo-3 years) staffed by qualified workers. Learn more about our childcare here.

Where do I park? There is parking both on the upper side of the church by the handicapped ramp and on the lower side of the church by the doors that go into the nursery area. If parking is full, plenty of parking is usually available at the Cape Shopping Center.

Is Broadneck Baptist Church handicapped accessible? Yes, there is a wheelchair ramp into our sanctuary and a handicapped accessible restroom on that same level.

Do you let outside groups use your church? Yes! Groups from the Boy Scouts to Alcoholics Anonymous to private music teachers currently use our building for regular or special events. Call the church office and leave a message at 410-757-8583 or fill out the contact form here to inquire about availability.

What kinds of opportunities and activities do you have for children and youth? Our children meet regularly on Sunday mornings and on other occasions to be together and grow in faith, and spend a fantastic week together every summer in Music and Arts Camp. Our youth help in many areas of ministry and also gather occasionally to have fun and to grow. Recently we've entered into a partnership with other Broadneck area churches to do occasional youth ministry events together, which has been a ton of fun! But most of all, we believe in the strength of doing things intergenerationally, in building relationships between kids, youth, and adults so we can all learn from each other. Here your youth and children will find not just peers of their own age, but family of all generations!

What kind of Baptists are you? We affiliate with the Alliance of Baptists, American Baptist Churches USA, and District of Columbia Baptist Convention. Yet we also have participants and members from all sorts of backgrounds, from Methodist to Catholic to Church of Christ. To learn more about the sort of Baptists we are, check out this page.

Am I really welcome at Broadneck? Absolutely! We are a church of all ages, ethnicities, religious backgrounds (including no religious background at all!), relationship statuses, and education and socioeconomic levels. We embrace diversity in every form, and cannot wait to meet you!
