Welcome to First Baptist Church of Pittsburgh. Below, we hope you will find answers to some of your initial questions when choosing to visit FBC for the first time.
Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
Q: Where are you located, and is there parking?
A: We are located at 159 North Bellefield Avenue (map), at the corner of N. Bellefield and Bayard Street, a couple blocks from the Univ. of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning. This is also at the intersection of Bigelow Blvd. and Bayard St. There is limited street parking around the building and there is also free parking (for Sunday Worship) in the Schenley Place Parking Garage. See the parking page for details.
Q: What time does your service start? Sunday School?
A: Worship service starts at 11:00 am. During the winter months (end of December through February), we meet in the library. Adult Sunday School starts at approximately 10:00 am. under the balcony in the library.
Q: What should I wear? Come as you are, casual or dressed up.
Q: What is the style of the worship service? Traditional, with a more blended style of music.
Q: I have special needs. Are you handicapped accessible?
A: Yes, there is a ramp at the rear of the church at the parklet entry adjacent to Schenley Place. We have an accessible restroom conveniently located on the first floor. The church also has a chairlift to the fellowship hall located on the lower level.
Q: I have children. Do you have a children's program?
A: No, not at the moment -- but we do have a nursery, playroom and baby changing stations. Please let us know how we can assist you.
Q: I have additional questions or concerns. How do I contact the Pastor?
A: Our pastor may be reached at the church at 412-621-0500 or at email@example.com. The church office may be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
