Welcome to your church home

We sincerely hope that we can be of service to you in your journey of faith.  We are a warm, caring congregation with a long history of service to the Southern Maryland Community.

The Discipleship Adventure is important to who we are and how we are organized.  We invite you to join us in the exhilarating and life-giving adventure.  

We encourage you to explore our website to discover all that we have to offer, and we hope to see you at worship on Sunday morning.

‍‍‍This Sunday we celebrate the First Sunday of Lent, and we will remember when Jesus was baptized and led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tested. These two events may not be so closely connected in our own lives, but all of us know what it means to be tested, both by temptation and by the trials of life. How have you fared? Did you rely upon God to bring you through your periods of wilderness? This Sunday, Gwen Rodriguez, our Pa‍‍‍storal Intern, will be sharing the sermon for us. Her message is “The Time Is Now”
