You're Invited
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. more>


Pastor's Monthly Message: Why Membership Matters

The Apostle Paul writes to the church in Ephesus (present-day Turkey): Look carefully  then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-16).


When Paul asks his readers to consider “how you walk,” he is referring to how we live our lives. I’d like to apply this to “how we drive our cars.” Look carefully, how you drive, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time. I could mention, of course, being considerate of other drivers and using our turn signals to the glory of God, both of which are important in driving, but I have something else in mind.



Verse of the Month

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.  For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. Galatians 5:1, 13 ESV
