Bridges of Hope

CSA Church has enjoyed long, faith-filled covenant relationships with UMC missionaries around the world. Read this newsletter from Nan McCurdy and Miguel Mairena who serve in Central America. In it, you'll learn how you or other young adults in your life (ages 18 - 30) can take advantage of opportunities to serve missions around the world and about projects like "You Are Not Alone" with which Nan and Miguel are involved.

Youth ALIVE!

Youth ALIVE is on a break for the summer and will return in August 2016. Until then, youth and their parents are encouraged to continue studying God's word. Daily Devos is a great way to stay inspired, and you can get yours right here.

A Little Bit About Us: Concord Methodist Church was formed in 1819, making it one of the oldest Methodist churches in Montgomery County, MD. St. Andrew's Methodist Church formed in 1956 to serve the growing suburban population. The two churches merged in 1976 to become Concord-St. Andrew's United Methodist Church and the 35th anniversary was celebrated in October 2011. Learn more about us here.
