Thank you for your interest in Faith Presbyterian Church (FPC) and for checking out our website.
We are a smaller congregation, eager to welcome newcomers. We enjoy getting to know people by name and we seek to have deeper,
more meaningful relationships even in the fast-paced fragmented world of the Maryland suburbs of Washington DC.
Pastor's Monthly Message: First Suffering, Then Glory
Some of us have been studying Paul’s letter to the Philippians using Discipleship Explored in 2015. If you read Philippians, it’s hard not to miss the role that suffering plays in the Christian’s life and in the life of the church as a whole. For example, in Philippians 1:29 Paul writes , “For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him, but also suffer for his sake…”
Most of us are fine with what Paul says about believing; it’s the part about suffering that we would rather do without. Unfortunately, we cannot skip the suffering; it is not optional. It is mandatory. It is how God makes us more like his Son...more>
