Faith Presbyterian Church


Welcome to Faith Presbyterian Church


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: We Make Our Plans...But the Lord Establishes Our Steps

As we have seen in the Book of Esther, God is at work in the lives of his people, but we cannot always see or understand what he is doing; He calls us to trust him even when events seem to go in unexpected directions.  Esther became Queen of Persia in 479 B.C. and needed to approach King Ahasuerus without a personal invitation.  People who did this, even queens, were usually met by the king's servants who came wielding axes to cut down unwanted intruders and uninvited guests.  This may sound harsh, but it was effective in reducing the number of unannounced visits from friends and foes alike  The only exception to receiving the death penalty for an unapproved visit was when the king, in his grace, extended the royal scepter to the uninvited guest to grant her permission to see the king.  But more was at stake than just Esther's life: if Esther was not granted favor by the king, God's people would perish at the hands of the king's wicked official, Haman, who was looking to wipe out all of the Jews in the Persian Empire on a single day. 


These are not the circumstances we might expect for God's chosen people.  We make our plans and expect them to go according to our desires, but that's often not what happens. more>
