First of all, we want to say that You’re Very Welcome!

We hope you will feel right at home, if and when you decide to visit us. If you are searching for a church home in the Maryland-Silver Spring area, we’d like you to know that there’s a special place here just for you.


A Place for Worship.
The primary reason we meet together is to focus our attention on God, giving Him our worship and receiving His blessing and inspiration. Each of these occasions is a special time of spiritual refreshment. We hope this is what you will experience when you visit First Assembly.


A Place for Learning
To us, studying the Bible is vital because it not only instructs us intellectually, but also guides us spiritually. We believe it and accept it as God’s Word to us, a book that is alive and relevant to life today. Learning its truths is a thrilling adventure.


A Place for Enrichment
For every person at every age level we offer a wealth of opportunities — special programs and ministries for children, youth and adults which fill the church calendar. You can be sure that in this kaleidoscope of activities there’s more than one place where you can be personally enriched.


A Place For Friendship
Nothing quite compares to the joy of Christian friendship. That’s why we make it a priority to build lasting bonds between the members of our church family — bonds of concern and genuine commitment to one another. Best of all, this circle of care is ever-widening. We’d love for it to include you, too.


A Place for Service
Just as Jesus Christ came “not to be ministered unto, but to minister…” we accept our responsibility to reach out in service to others. This applies both within the church family and outside our fellowship. We look forward to serving you, and we hope to see you soon.
