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: 10 Years at Faith
.I just completed my 10th year of ministry as Faith’s pastor on July 31. As with child-rearing, some of the days were long, but the years have gone by quickly. About two years ago, we formed a Vision Team, consisting of Dennis Nola, Cheri Artz, Becky Miller, U.J. Tivade, and myself, and we began consulting with Ken Priddy.

The first year of the process, we worked and talked through Ken’s mate-rials on church renewal as a congregation. In this last year, we (the congregation not the Vision Team) have begun several new ministries: Christianity Explored; Ladies’ Craft and Conversation Night; and most recently this summer, ESOL. None of these ministries have drawn large crowds, but that’s okay because our purpose was not to draw large crowds, but to engage people outside of the church and share the good news of Jesus in word and deed.
