Pastor Gloria is leading the church to digital connections. Visit this post weekly to view updates!

Pledge for 2021

Download pledge form here.  In 2021, our theme is from Joshua, as once again we are asked to choose this day who we are going to serve.  The pledge card is a photo software so you must download it, print it, fill it out and snail mail it back to church–do you feel rushed?  Take your time, pray, and act!

 Ongoing Mission Opportunities

Help By Phone is a Federally funded food pantry operated by volunteers like you.  Let your neighbors know that they can call 301-699-9009 and receive pantry items from this program.  They will be directed to one of the participating churches depending on their address. 

 Due to the pandemic, many undocumented residents of our county are unable to feed their families.  Your generous donations enabled the church to purchase food for these families.  So thank you for your generous financial contributions, donations and volunteer hours.
