We are a diverse American Baptist church in Shaker Heights, Ohio conveniently located just minutes from downtown Cleveland on the east side. Our beautiful large historic gothic building gives us a lot of space for our many ongoing activities for children and adults. It is wheelchair accessible with ample convenient parking in our large lot. We have a contemporary service at 9:00 am and a traditional service at 11:00 am. During the summer we have one combined service Single Service Summer  at 10:00 AM with Discipleship classes beginning at 9:00 AM.  (June 9 – September 1). There are Bible classes for young and old on Sunday morning and Wednesday evenings. Prayer meetings are available on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Check our calendar for current activities, we normally have multiple activities happening every day and would love to have you join our church family or visit us on Sunday.
