Christian Education


Christian Education is to offer classes throughout the church calendar year that are biblically based, real and relevant in meeting the needs of the congregants to mature in their relationship with God, with others. The goal is to “Build Disciples to Win the world for Christ.”

CAYA – Come As You Are


Come As You Are (CAYA) is a unique worship experience that focuses on the issues, concerns and struggles we encounter daily. While service is relevant for individuals in their twenties and thirties, CAYA is for everyone! Attendees need not be a member of Alfred Street Baptist Church or any other church— simply Come As You Are. Worship and God’s Word come alive with Pastor Wesley, a band and the CAYA Praise Team.

John O. Peterson Library


The John O. Peterson (JOP) Library is a lending library with a substantial collection of books in print, audio-visual and online resources for adults and children. Named in honor of Pastor Peterson who retired in 2006 after 42 years of ministry, the library’s resources cover a wide variety of topics such as prayer, evangelism, marriage, divorce, grief, parenting, African American and Christian history and other subjects of interest to members of our congregation, plus a variety of biblical reference books. Our goal is to assist church members, ministries, committees and staff with research and other ministry-related information that will enrich the spiritual lives of the Alfred Street community. Please e-mail the JOP Library team at for more information.

Tutorial Ministry

The Tutorial Ministry serves students ages in school grades 2–-12.

The purpose of the Tutorial Ministry is to assist youth of the Alfred Street Baptist Church and surrounding communities in enhancing self-esteem, motivation, study habits, and to encourage students to take responsibility for “learning,” which is commensurate with their ability to perform in academic settings. We incorporate the motto of Pray, Prepare and Perform through weekly student-led devotional. 

Sunday School


Saturday and Sunday School classes give all ages the opportunity to study and discuss God’s Word. Join other disciples to learn and grow through His Word.
