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.

Easter Cantata Coming

It is called,“Who Is This King?” and it is written by Lloyd Larson and Joseph M.Martin.  Do you like to sing? Have you sung with the choir in the past? Do you know anyone you’d like to send to them to sing? Rehearsals are on Wednesdays at 7:30 in the Choir Room downstairs (Room 100) and ‍‍‍they also practice at 10:30 on Sunday mornings.

Calling all scouts in our church, whether you are a part of one of the troops or packs that meets here, or whether you are part of another scouting branch sponsored by another organization, we invite all our scouts (Boy Scouts, Cubs, and Girl Scouts of every level) to wear their uniforms and come to the 11:00 service on Sunday, February 25. We will have special elements in the service and a chance for all previous scouts to be recognized. Plan now to join us. Rev. Jones will be sharing his message, “The Concerns of God” at both the 8:30 & 11:00 services.‍‍‍
