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: The Importance of Church
How important is worship to your spiritual life? How important is fellowship to your spiritual growth? The writer to the Hebrews says: And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not ne-glecting to meet together as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near (Heb. 10:24-25).
Some of us are absolutely persuaded that we need to worship God weekly and need the fellowship of other Christians in order to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. You can tell by the way these Christians set their pri-orities. Others are not yet persuaded that this worship and fellowship is essential to their spiritual well-being.
I have read some biographies of people who have become stronger spiritually while living in solitary confine-ment in prison. Others because of old age or infirmity become shut-in. But in both cases, these folks were not casually or intentionally neglecting to meet with other Christians. They did not choose their circumstances. However, some who call themselves Christians here in America are choosing not to meet with other Christians regularly, and they are doing this to their spiritual peril.
