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.

We will again present 9 awards to volunteers who have gone above and beyond normal service to our church. We will also recognize one staff member who has contributed exceptional leadership and effort to the ministries of our church.

There are times when faith is counter-intuitive. ‍‍‍Learning when to act contrary to reason, or advice, or even our own desires is not an easy thing to do. This week, Pastor Bruce is going to challenge us to think in new ways, as Jesus calls us to change and leave old ways behind. His message is entitled, “Upside Down or Right Side Up.” Please join us at the Café Service on Sunday at 8:30 AM, at the Traditional service at 11:00 AM or on Wednesday at the M&M Service at 7:00 PM.
