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.

By the time you finish the course, you have read nearly 75% of the Bible. Th‍‍‍e discussions you will have, information you will learn, and the bonds with classmates that you will make, will be life-changing. The class will be held in Room 102 (the old Parlor) on Sundays, at 9:30 AM to 10:45 AM. Please come join the class this week at 9:30.
