Facilities

The church is not a building.

Our campus builds community. 

Our building is a church.
a preschool.
a community health and wellness center. 
a hub for learning in pandemic. 
a place for community building. 
a birthplace for non-profits. 
a resource for all.

Here at Myers Park Baptist Church, we want our buildings to be an asset to the community--a vehicle for curating inclusivity, spirituality, justice, and community. We love our buildings and want our surrounding community to feel like they are communal gathering spaces.

POWERED

BY THE SUN

Solar Panels at MPBC

SOLAR PANELS

Being a community leader on important issues of justice (in this case, environmental justice) has always been important to our Church, so one of the primary purposes of our solar panel system is to serve as a focal point for energy education, both for our congregation and members of the community. We give tours of the system and we have a “Solar Energy Display” mounted in the entrance of the Cornwell Center and is also available below.

Tending to Our

Garden

Community Garden

The Friendship Garden at Myers Park Baptist, tended by Ed Williams for years before it had to be removed for HVAC underground pipe repairs, has been reborn! Addison Schultz, a scout mentored by Tom Jones, re-built the garden as his Eagle Scout Service project, and did a brilliant job: all natural cedar side garden beds, with sanded cedar top caps for sitting, and organic soil and mulch. Ed personally donated several varieties of tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, and more that are sprouting blooms. Harvesting has begun for delivery to Friendship Trays, a meals-on-wheels program for the needy.

Walking the Path

Inward

Labyrinth

A labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool for reflection. Its winding, circuitous walk symbolizes a person's walk into themselves. The labyrinth here at MPBC was pattered after the 14th century labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France. It is open to the public 24 hours a day and is well lit at night.
