Thus begins the current mission
statement of Takoma Park Presbyterian Church (TPPC). We
are a small, but active church in Takoma Park, Maryland
working for social justice from Silver Spring to Jinocuao,
Our church is known as "a church for all people" because
our congregation is made up of people of many races,
cultures, occupations, ages, and sexual orientations.
A summary of what we learned from our listening campaign appears
We as a church community yearn to:
Be shaped and changed by God
Engage our children and youth in church life
Address inequalities in our local and global
Care for our environment
Deepen our connections to each other
We welcome all to join our worship on Sunday at 11 AM, our
Sunday School classes for children and adults at 9:30 AM,
and we welcome you here as well.
Come join us in the parlor at 9:30 before worship starting Sunday April 12th
as we begin a new 7-week series using the "Living the Questions 2.0" study.
We will begin each session with review of a 20 minute video segment that
features a variety of leading religious voices including Diana Butler Bass,
the late Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, and many others.
We follow the video with open conversation and reflection.
Hand-outs accompany each session with further readings, questions, and
ideas for spiritual practice.
From 7:30 to 9:15 a.m. every Thursday at Capital City Cheesecake on 7071 Carroll Ave. near church.
Come by, say hello, visit a little or a lot. (The breakfasts will resume April 16.)
The Women's Bible Study class will meet on Saturday May 9 at 10:30
a.m, in the Church Parlor.† The focus is 2 Corinthians†11:1-32.†
We will share fellowship with a potluck lunch.
On May 31, we will have our second Worship on the steps. Please bring readings,
prayers, poems and music to share. Also bring a dish for our potluck lunch.
You are warmly invited to join
an ongoing discussion of how we, as individuals, church, and members of
the broader community can respond to racism and be part of the change
that is needed in our society.† The group meets the first and third Thursdays
of each month.
We hope you will join us!
+The Farmer's Market in Takoma Park will have food to take to Shepherd's Table.
TPPC's group gleans every second Sunday of the month.
We need a few more volunteers; at least one with a car, to help gather
produce and baked goods this Sunday.
If you are able to help please meet in front of Roscoe/Clock
at 1:45 pm at the Takoma Park Farmers Market with some paper yard
bags, large boxes, and large garbage plastic bags (no white trash bags Ė
sometimes those are treated with insecticide).
The vendors are very generous, and they are expecting us. They are willing
to donate to Shepherds Table. We will then deliver the food to the kitchen
at Shepherds Table where their chef turns it all into delicious meals for over
