Hybrid Sunday Worship Experience



Stewardship & Inspiration

Awaken Spirituality

Reading scripture is a great way to ignite your spiritual growth. We invite you to embrace this opportunity to prepare for the upcoming week’s worship service by reading the lectionary scripture readings for Sunday over the course of the week. The readings for the coming week are available here.

Please contact the church office with any prayer concerns you would like included on the prayer list, which appears weekly in the bulletin.  Also, please contact the church office or Rev.

A Little 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. We celebrated our 35th anniversary  in October 2011. 

No matter who you are and where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome to worship with us. Our address is 5910 Goldsboro Rd., Bethesda, MD 20817.

Worship lifts our spirits 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.
