church & Covid

While the building is closed,

we are out being the church in the world.

In keeping with the Wesleyan rule, "Do No Harm," as well as with the recommendations of our Re-Entry Task Force and the Baltimore-Washington Conference of the UMC, we cannot in good conscience allow for activities to take place inside the church building. But we, like all institutions, families, and individuals, are learning to be nimble and adaptive, and are listening deeply for God's call to be connected to our faith, to each other, and to a hurting world in this time. Below you'll see some of the opportunities for worship, fellowship, service, and learning. No matter where you are in the world or in your spiritual journey, there is a place for you here! Contact Rev. James for any of the Zoom links or phone numbers.
