It was a great joy to be with you for this Advent and (continuing) Christmas season, and I want to thank all of you who helped make it so meaningful: To the Worship Team and all who participated in worship services, who served as worship leaders,… Read more
Welcome To Our Church
Welcome to Sunday Worship at Warwick Central Baptist Church. We would be delighted to have you join us. Although we worship in a new format for a temporary period of time we come before God with praise for all He does in our lives. Let us come with joy as we worship, celebrating our time together online. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

Our leadership teams are making plans for re-opening our doors for our worship services and other events following the pandemic. We will keep you posted as decisions are made.
We continue to pray for all around the world who are suffering at this time in health or loss of family. Let us hold fast to God’s faithfulness and rest assured that He holds all in His care. May God’s peace be with you.
Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, the members of the Warwick Central Baptist Church extend a warm welcome and invite you to visit our church through this page. WCBC is a community of believers that is committed to Growing in Christ, Sharing Christ and Serving Christ together.
We welcome people of all walks of life as we seek to build a healthy spiritual community with love and humility, reflecting the character of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We strive to blend the faith witness and wisdom of our older members with the excitement and enthusiasm of the younger people, so that our life together, and the ministries that emerge from our fellowship, are fresh, vital, and prophetic.
You will find Warwick Central to be relaxed in its style worship, and, while we wish to you make you feel most welcome, we do recognize that it can sometimes feel intimidating to enter a church you’re not familiar with. You are our respected and welcome guest, and we hope you will feel as comfortable in our house as you would in that of a valued friend. Please don’t hesitate to ask our greeters at the door if you have any questions, or need somebody to help you manage the Bible and Hymnal during the service.
We hope, as well, that this information will give you a better understanding of the way we worship, and help you feel more at home when you join us.
From your Temporary Shepherd Christmas in a Different Key I was talking with other pastors recently about ideas for this special season, especially for our churches that are worshiping online. One person advised that we put aside our ideas of how everything was done in the past, and just start over, as if for the… Read more
From your Temporary Shepherd……. I must admit to having mixed feelings about seeing all the decorations that go up in November – sometimes even October. It seems to happen earlier every year – the beautiful fall season is brought to an abrupt end much too soon by the appearance of trees, elves, wreaths, wrappings, and… Read more
From Your Temporary Shepherd Greetings everyone! I just want to say “hello” right now, and tell you how delighted I am to be working with you for the next few months. I know it will be different, as everything has been different since last spring; but we will figure it out, and help each other,… Read more
Pastor’s Page: When your congregation’s Transition Team asked if I might be available to serve as a sort of bridge transitional pastor for the summer, I don’t think any of us knew exactly what to expect. How might I help the congregation travel through a time of pastoral transition and the uncertainty of… Read more
Traveling Our Journey of Faith On the bulletin board in my office at Canonicus there’s a cartoon that features a couple riding in a gondola. Sharks swim next to the gondola as it makes its way along a spooky-looking tunnel. The only light comes from a lamp that’s attached to a skull on the… Read more
During the pandemic helping others with donations of non-perishable food is needed more than ever. Our church is responding by asking our church congregants to drop-off food items to 881 Greenwich Ave – Greenwood Commons, E25, Warwick (front porch). All food will be brought to the West Bay Community Action food pantry in Warwick, RI…. Read more
