Wondering what to expect when you visit our church?
When you worship at Garfield Park Baptist, you’ll find a vibrant group of people diverse in education and income levels, theological perspectives, and age-yet united by God’s love! Our worship gatherings at 9:30 a.m. contain both traditional and praise music, prayers, Bible readings, thoughts for personal reflection, and preaching.
We are an American Baptist church, called by God, to create a community that works together to empower people to be the best version of themselves they can be and that God wants them to be. We seek to “Bring God’s Light to the Park” through compassion, prayer, and living into our God-given purpose.
Please take a moment to browse our website and discover who we are! You will learn about our worship, spiritual growth opportunities, and ministries such as Food Pantry, Community Meal, Youth group, choir, game night, and various small group options.
Garfield Park Baptist Church formed in 1913 on Indianapolis' near Southside. Like all churches, we’ve experienced many changes, significant ups and downs.
Yet, certain things remain true for us:
Hi! I’m Pastor Judy and I’m grateful you’ve chosen to explore our website. It’s my hope you’ll find Garfield Park Baptist Church a place you would want to call ‘home’.
The people here are among the most caring, supportive, and gracious people you will meet. We welcome everyone, knowing we all are on a life journey seeking meaning and purpose.
Here at Garfield we find our purpose through God’s love for us and through Jesus.
Please visit us on Sunday mornings at 9:30 A.M. for worship, followed by fellowship time and Sunday School for all ages!
Blessings and peace in the name of Christ,
Pastor Judy Fackenthal
