Freemason Street Baptist Church

FREEMASON STREET BAPTIST CHURCH has a perpendicular gothic style of architecture designed by Thomas U. Walter, who also designed the U.S. Capitol dome. The sanctuary provides a beautiful setting for worship, and the Moeller pipe organ is an exquisite instrument for worship and concerts.

In 1997, Freemason Street undertook the refurbishment of the sanctuary, which included restoration of the steeple, replacement of the roof with slate, removal, and refurbishment of the oak pews, and replacement of the carpet.

In 2005, the first-floor classrooms of Melton Hall were renovated and turned into staff offices, a conference room, and a secretarial office and reception area, creating a warm and welcoming work environment and an area where the staff and members could productively interact.

In 2007, the rear annex of the church was razed and replaced with Williams Hall. This addition includes a full music suite for rehearsals, library, conference rooms, meditation rooms, a toddler and infant wing, classrooms, and a chapel. The HVAC system was upgraded, and the existing commercial kitchen was completely modernized. This expansion greatly enhanced our capacity and capability to host events, care for our children, and expand our music program.
