Welcome!

Experience Our Hospitality

Everyone is welcome at Ardmore Baptist Church! Our members are eager to introduce themselves to newcomers, so you’ll be able to get to know our congregation from the moment you step through our doors.


When you arrive at Ardmore Baptist, you’ll find one of our members waiting to greet you at a welcome desk stationed by each major entrance. We’ll be happy to direct you to wherever you need to go, including Bible study, worship services, and our childcare services. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet with our ministers before and after services.


Following service on Sunday, we encourage all visitors to stop by our Hospitality Room, where you’ll meet with members of our Invitation & Hospitality team. They’re available to answer any questions you have and will talk to you about the church (and send you home with fresh homemade bread!).

Your First Sunday

What should I expect during my first visit?

We want your first visit to our church to be easy and pleasant. When you visit us, you’ll witness the great music, encouraging messages, friendly people, and enjoyable atmosphere that are a part of the Ardmore Baptist experience.

What is the schedule on Sundays?

  • Bible study for all ages begins at 9:30 a.m.
  • Worship services begin at 8:15 a.m. and 10:45 a.m.
  • Preschool worship care is available for ages birth through 4 years.

Where should I park?

We have several reserved “Guest Parking” spaces for visitors available right in front of the sanctuary for your convenience. Excess parking is also available in a remote lot nearby, and the Ardmore Express offers shuttle services to and from the lot between 7:45 a.m. – 12:00 noon.

The remote lot is located behind 2200 Cloverdale Avenue, between Miller Street and Melrose Avenue.To enter from Melrose Avenue:

  • From the church, proceed north on Miller Street toward Cloverdale Avenue.
  • Proceed to the stoplight at Queen Street.
  • Turn left onto Queen Street and proceed to the 4-way stop sign at Melrose Avenue.
  • Turn right onto Melrose Avenue and proceed to the first parking lot entrance on your right (sign says Miller Plaza 2200).
  • Ardmore Baptist uses the upper lot section closest to Miller Street for parking.

The primary pick-up/drop-off point at the church is the covered entrance on the Elizabeth Avenue side of the church.

Where should I go first?

Look for our Welcome Center sign outside the main entrance doors, and from there be sure to stop by our Welcome Desk in the main lobby! Our friendly staff will be waiting to tell you about our Sunday Bible Communities and answer any questions you may have.

If you are joining us for worship, you’ll find volunteers eager to meet you and tell you more about our congregation. And if you visit prior to Sunday Bible Study, our church members will be available to discuss various class listings for adults and children and escort you and your family to your Sunday Bible Study classes.

How will I find my way around?

Don’t worry about that! Our Welcome Team is here to guide you to your destination. But if it makes you feel more comfortable, you can always download a map of our facilities by clicking here

What are worship services like?

Our Sunday services are distinct because of their strong emphasis on sacred music of many varieties, as well as traditional worship. Through music, prayer, scripture, silence, and the spoken word, we lift our hearts to God.

How can I meet the ministers?

Our ministers would love to meet you! They are available just outside the sanctuary after worship every Sunday morning. If you would like a more in-depth visit with a minister, please call the church office at 336-725-8767, Monday-Friday to set up a time for a personal visit or phone call.

What if I have more questions?

We want to hear from you! If you have other questions, or simply a comment you want to share, give us a call at 336-725-8767 or email us at info@ardmorebaptist.org.

We look forward to your visit!
