Watson offers solutions for remaining sane in a culture where everyone seems to be shouting all the time. You can elevate the discourse and tune out the noise that seems to pervade the news and our own interactions. The article is posted on Ministry Matters and you can read it here.

The Church

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 a 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.

Whether you are visiting or searching for a church home, you are always welcome to worship with us. Our address is 5910 Goldsboro Rd., Bethesda, MD 20817.

Worship lifts our spirirts and strengthens our relationships with God. It also stirs our imaginations, fills us with wonder, and offers us fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Come as you are! Be our guest! Experience the love of God and Christian community.

Join us for coffee and fellowship beginning at 10:00 AM and then join us for worship at 11:00.
