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. See his comments in the video below:
Eliberto and Molly are endorsed to serve as global servants in El Salvador with IM partner Mision Vida y Paz (MVP), or Mission Life and Peace. They share a strong commitment to peace building and social transformation through the power of the gospel. MVP is an educational program based on biblical values to be used in public schools in El Salvador. The couple will build the MVP program by educating and training Christian volunteers who are committed to serve as agents of transformation in their communities. These volunteers will work with Eliberto and Molly to deploy the MVP curriculum. They seek to see churches living out their calling to bring God's peace to children, families and communities.
Get ready for a new way to dive into God's Word. The Wired Word, led by Pastor Gil, takes place on Tuesdays from 12:15pm to 1pm. Bring your lunch and join in on a study that examines the Christian response to current events taking place in our world today.
We will begin our new online study on September 10th, 2019: “Jesus as Prophet, Priest, and King: Theology and Anthropology of the Hebrews Epistle.” Our first class will discuss the format of our study, which will involve topical, exegetical (i.e. line-by-line analysis of the text), socio-cultural, and theological-anthropological platforms that are localized within the Hebrews epistle, and we can mine important correlations that resonate with many challenges confronting today’s faith communities.
