WHO IS THE PASTOR? Our Pastor is Pastor Kristin Dubsky. Learn more about Pastor Kristin.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?  Our address is 827 Leister’s Church Road, Westminster, Maryland 21157. Click here to see a printable map and directions.

WHAT TIME IS WORSHIP?  We gather to worship in the church sanctuary on Sunday mornings at 8:00a.m. and 10:30a.m. Some people start to arrive about ten minutes beforehand while others arrive just in time. The services in our beautiful, understated sanctuary last around one hour (no more than one-and-a-half).

In the summer we celebrate at 8:00a.m. in the sanctuary, but our next service is at 9:30a.m. and, weather permitting, is celebrated outside in the “Chapel in the Woods” -  a unique, beautiful and inspiring way to start your summer Sundays.

HOLY COMMUNION? Holy Communion is celebrated at each service. All who are baptized Christians are invited to receive communion and all others are welcome to come forward for a blessing. 

ARE THERE CHILDREN AT THE SERVICES? We have a weekly children’s sermon at the 10:30a.m. service (9:30a.m. in the summer) and encourage children as young as babies in arms to around age eleven to come up and enjoy special time with Pastor Kristin. 

If your little ones need a break there is a nursery in the church building on the second floor.  Please don’t hesitate to enjoy it if you think you need to! You can access it by using the door to the left of the altar (don’t worry, it gets used all the time!) or by exiting the church through the narthex (street-side entrance) and entering the building that houses the nursery using the side entrances off of the large parking lot. (See a map below.)

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO ENTER THE CHURCH? There are two ways to enter the church. The street-side entrance, or the front of the church, is called the narthex.  It is a small little foyer that with another  set of doors that open the back of the sanctuary. The other way to enter is through the side entrance. You would go up a set of stairs, then enter from what is essentially the side of the altar. Both entrances are commonly used.

WHAT DO WE WEAR? From suits to jeans, shirts to short-sleeves, dresses to pants, everyone wears what they are comfortable in. All are welcome.
