Bible Study-Sunday Service: Montgomery County government has ordered gatherings of more than 250 people to be cancelled for two weeks beginning 3/12/20. As such, there will be no service at the church on Sunday until that is lifted. However service will be streamed on Sunday via this web page and on our Facebook page.
All other events at the Church are cancelled until further notice.
Contact us at info@thechurchdowntown or by phone if you have any additional questions.
In 1924 Silver Spring was a tiny little village made up mostly of apple orchards and dirt paths. It was in this setting that 14 people met on October 22, 1924 to establish the Silver Spring Baptist Church. Since that time the First Baptist Church of Silver Spring has had a presence in downtown helping people in the community to make their lives better through ministry and fellowship. Our commitment to be a shining presence in today's urban environment is stronger than ever with a brand new building in that same location - the heart of Silver Spring.
You can still join us every Sunday at 11am for the weekly Sunday Service. And we hold Adult Bible Study and Bible Study for children through High School every Sunday at 10 am, and another adult Bible Study every Wednesday at 1:30 at the church. Additionally, we offer a study at your own pace Bible Study called the Essential 100, which you can read more about below.
We are also affiliated with two other churches who offer Sunday Service at our downtown Silver Spring facility in French/Haitian Creole and Spanish. For information on the French/Haitian Creole Church please visit: https://eglisebaptistedelafoi.org and for Spanish language service visit Iglesia Baptista Immanuel or call them at (301) 879-5155.
On March 31, 2019, Reverend Gil Gulick took the congregation out of the worship service and to the lobby of our Wayne Avenue entrance. From here you can look out the glass exterior walls and see the downtown Silver Spring skyline. With this view Reverend Gulick articulated "The Church Downtown" vision.
