  • Documentary and Discussion, Wednesday, October 23rd, 7pm

    “Love your enemy,” but would you befriend Klan members?

    “Accidental Courtesy” is a documentary about Daryl Davis, an African-American Silver Spring resident who has established friendships with a number of KKK members – even loaning them his band’s tour bus so they could attend a Klan rally! Davis seeks answers to the question, “How can you hate me, when you don’t even know me?” with some surprising results.

    We will view this 90 minute video and then discuss some of the issues that it raises about how best to understand those who would be your enemy.

  • October Diaper Drive

    Did you know that diapers are not coverd by food stamps and that 1 in 3 families struggle to buy diapers? Let's work together this month to ensure that every child in Germantown has a clean well fitting diaper. Please bring in a box or bag of new diapers in the month of October to donate to Germantown HELP's food pantry. Diapers in siizes 4, 5, and 6 are especially needed.

  • Children's Playground Fundraising
    A couple of members of our congregation have recently offered to provide seed funding for a children's playground to be built on our church grounds. They are also asking for friends and family to celebrate an upcoming birthday by giving to this project. Having a playground would be a signal to our families, and any visiting families, that children are welcome here. if you would like to contribute to this effort of hospitality for our children and young families, we have recently created an online donation option on our website to collect donations for this project. Thank you for support!
