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 which meets most Sunday evenings 5-6:30 PM, currently in the white house at Adelphi Friends Meeting, 2303 Metzerott Road, Adelphi, MD. Group meetings will include 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. Generally once a month, this group will meet jointly at 5 PM on a Sunday with the DC small group of Friends of Jesus. Every few months, there will be a retreat for the entire Friends of Jesus group.
This is the schedule for the remainder of 2013:
- Sunday, November 24, 5 PM - Joint gathering of both small groups, William Penn House, 515 E. Capitol St. SE, Washington, DC.
- Sunday, December 1, 5-6:30 PM - Maryland group meeting, Adelphi Friends Meeting. To include consideration of the first three months of the group and how we are called for the future.
- Sunday, December 8, 5 PM - Advent Gathering including both small groups, Adelphi Friends Meeting.

Friends of Jesus has another small group in Washington, DC, also meeting most Sundays 5-6:30 PM. If this is more convenient for you, please contact Micah Bales for more information.
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. The majority of active members of that group now get their Bible study through the Friends of Jesus Maryland group described above.
