The Reverend Dr. Bill Leonard, Pulpit Supply Minister
Worship at Myers Park Baptist Church brings
together the ancient and the new. It honors the two thousand year
worship traditions of the church and shapes them in our "free-church" tradition to bring something fresh and
vital. It seeks to reach the mind, heart and will of every person.
Worship here offers superb sacred music of many different genres,
pastoral and prophetic preaching, carefully planned liturgy, and
the "freedom of the pulpit" cherished by the
congregation. We, a church "open to all and closed to
none," want worship to be, as Jesus put it, "a house of
prayer for all people."
worship in a breathtakingly beautiful sanctuary whose architecture
itself is a profound theological statement. We worship God in the
"beauty of holiness." But our worship does not neglect the poorest and most
vulnerable in our world. As Camus wrote, "There is beauty and
there are the humiliated, and we must try, hard as it is, not to
be unfaithful to one or to the other."

Sermon TalkBack is what adults do in the summer in place of Sunday School. After
the 10:00 a.m. worship service in the Sanctuary, we go to Heaton
Hall where we can "talk back" to the preacher about the sermon,
for example, asking for more detail or explanation or sharing a
personal experience that is connected to the topic. This is an
excellent way to participate in and hear the diverse voices that
make up the Myers Park Baptist Church community.
