For Visitors

Visiting anywhere new presents questions like "Where do I park?" "What should I wear?" and "Where do I bring the kids?".  At Calvary Baptist, we want you to feel right at home so we have assembled this page to help answer these questions and more. We hope you find this useful and it prompts you to come and see for yourself what a loving, Christian family can be.


The Church 

Where are you located?
The church is located on the corner of Mud Mill Road and Route 11 in Brewerton, NY. Our official or GPS address is 9251 Brewerton Road, Brewerton, NY 13029. Click on "Map & Directions" at the top of this page  for more complete directions.

Where do I park?
We have plenty of parking in both the front and the back of the church. The entrance to the front lot is just off Route 11 on Mud Mill Road. The rear entrance is about 100 feet further down Mud Mill Road on the right.

There are lots of doors, where do I enter?
Please use the newly renovated entrance on the southeast corner of the church. This entrance is handicap accessible. You can also enter the church from the rear parking lot via the door at the top of the stairs. Either entrance leads directly to the worship center.  



The Service 



What time is the service and how long does it last?
Our Sunday morning service begins at 10:30 AM, and generally lasts about 65 minutes. It runs somewhat longer on communion Sunday.

What should I wear?
Some of our members wear formal business attire (e.g. suits, dresses), but many wear jeans or casual business wear.

What's the service like? Is it hard to follow?
The service follows a similar structure each week. It begins with prayer, and music, moves into the morning message, and ends with prayer and music. It is not difficult to follow and is firmly grounded in God's word.

What kind of music should I expect? Is there a band?
Because our congregation crosses several generations, we mix contemporary Christian and traditional hymns in each service. We do not have a band at this time.



Family Concerns


I have infant children. Is there a nursery available?
Nursery services are available for both Sunday School and the regular morning service. If entering from the main entrance, turn left as you come in the door and the nursery is the second door on your right. If entering from the back parking lot, turn right, go down the ramp, then right again and the nursery is the second door on your right.

My young children don't sit still for long. Is there something for them to do during the service?
Children's church is available for children ages 4-8. The children are released for children's church prior to the morning message, but parents can choose to keep their children with them if desired.

What about older children? Are there youth activities available?
Children ages 9 and up join their parents for the Sunday worship service.

What is the congregation like? Will my family fit in?
The congregation at Calvary Baptist reflects the Brewerton Community as a whole, and includes young families, mature couples, and singles alike. If you have a desire to fit in, we will warmly welcome you.
