Hybrid Sunday Worship Experience

The hybrid worship experience on Zoom is taking a break until the beginning of September – we will announce which Sunday it will resume. If you would like to be trained to host the Zoom, please let Maria Roche or the office know as we need more people who know how to host Zoom worship.

Stewardship & Inspiration

Prayers and Concerns

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. Curtis Ehrgott if you know someone in need of a visit in the hospital, another healthcare facility, or a home. The church office is open Monday - Friday 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Zoom Help Wanted

Zoom Worship for those who worship at home with us is a vital connection for several people to CSA. Maria is doing a fantastic job of coordinating this every week. To keep this wonderful ministry going, we need a few people who would be willing to learn how to coordinate the Zoom worship for those times when Maria will be unavailable to be in church. Maria is writing instructions and would be happy to meet with anyone who is interested.

News & Events

School Supply Drive 2022

Concord St. Andrews Church will be collecting school supplies, back packs, and new underwear for needy children. We give the supplies to Interfaith Works whose families shop for free at their used clothing store in Rockville.  Interfaith Works has a goal to collect and distribute 2,600 new backpacks filled with new school supplies for school aged children. 
We will be collecting items through August 15th so they have time to gather, organize and distribute these items. (No lunch bags/boxes are needed because the children qualify for lunch programs at schools.)


Top Items Needed:

  • Backpacks
  • 1” – 2” Binders
  • Dividers
  • Filler Lined Paper
  • 2-Pocket Folders
  • Blue and Black Pens
  • Colored Pencils
  • Pencil Pouches
  • Scissors
  • Markers

Donors are also asked to consider purchasing a package of NEW underwear, to help the children start the new school year.
CSA has a collection box in the Narthex and another one in the Social Hall. If you would rather send a check, please make it out to CSA UMC and note: “School Supplies.” If you have any questions, please call the church office at (301) 229-3383 if you have questions. 

Thank you!

About Concord-St. Andrews UMC

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 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.

Our Hybrid Worship Experience will resume in September 2022 on a Sunday to be announced.
