Welcome to the
Friends in Christ Web Site

     Welcome! We're glad you are visiting our Web site. Here you can find information about the Friends in Christ ministry.

     We have a local ministry building Christian small groups and providing other Christian opportunities primarily in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC and Baltimore. We provide, and work through larger faith communities to provide, opportunities to nurture your growth in Christ through groups which meet in different places. Each group chooses its own format and focus. It is our hope that groups will reflect ethnic and cultural diversity.

Worship and Fellowship

     Friends in Christ does not have a regular worship gathering under its own name at this time. In conjunction with Friends of Jesus - Metro DC Area (formerly known as Capitol Hill Friends), we started a small group in September 2013 meeting most Sunday evenings 5-6:30 PM. Group meetings have generally included fellowship, Bible reflection, open (waiting) worship, and prayer. The Friends in Christ Coordinator leads this small group, and others who have been active in Friends in Christ are involved. If interested, contact Bill Samuel.

Our current cycle of gatherings, focusing on Acts 2, for the Maryland Friends of Jesus group will end on Sunday, March 2, 2014, at 5 PM at 9205 Whitney St., Silver Spring, MD (not too far from the intersection of the Beltway and University Blvd., and about a 1/3 mile walk from a Ride-On Bus 12 stop). In addition to Bible reflection, we have a gathering/fellowship time, worship and prayer. The gatherings last about 90 minues. Snacks will be available, and participants are invited to bring a snack to share if convenient.

We will have a Lenten cycle of gatherings beinging Sunday, March 9, 2014, at the same time and place. We will end that cycle with joint Good Friday and Easter gatherings of the two Friends of Jesus small groups.

Friends of Jesus has another small group in Washington, DC. It meets on Tuesday evenings at 7:30 PM at 4944 East Capitol St. NE. If this is more convenient for you, please contact Micah Bales for more information.

Bible Study Group

     The Bible study group which met twice monthly for 12½ years, considering all four Gospels and the Book of Acts, was laid down on September 16, 2013. Some active members of that group became part of the Friends of Jesus Maryland group described above.
