Psalm 23 with Matt Chandler: Many people are familiar with Psalm 23. But because we all know it, we often breeze through the psalm without slowing down long enough to rest in the assurance it offers. In this 6-part series on Psalm 23, Pastor Matt Chandler introduces us to the great shepherd, the Lord, who promises to provide for every need of his flock. Though only six verses long, this psalm teaches us profound truths about our loving and protective God. By studying Psalm 23, we’ll encounter a life-transforming question: Do you trust the Lord to care for your needs? Starting September 10th and running through October 16th, this men's lunchtime video Bible study will be led by Tim Frink and hosted by Frank Calkins (45824 Meadowlark Dr, Lexington Park) from noon to 12:45. No purchase necessary.

God is moving in Southern Maryland! Jesus says, "when two or three gather in my name, there I am with them," (Matt. 18:20) showing the power we have available to us when we join together with other believers in His name.

Join us in Tolerance Hall at the St. Mary's County Fair on Friday night September 20th at 7PM for our second annual Prayer at the Fair.

As the new school year begins, SMCPS is excited to start the After School Mentoring program for the year. In order to do this, they need our assistance and support. How cool is it that they came to us?! They are currently looking for volunteer mentors willing to spend 90 minutes (that's it!) each week working directly with students.

Worship isn't just about Sunday morning worship - it's about a lifestyle that glorifies the Lord. We meet on Sunday to join together and raise our voices and instruments in praise to the Lord, but it doesn't stop there - it begins there, and it refreshes us for the rest of the week's worship.

If the Lord has given you singing or musical gifts, we encourage you to present them to Him. Meet with any of our worship leaders, and let them know you're interested. We'll be happy to find you a place to serve the Lord with us, to help His congregation draw closer to Him each week.

You can hear some of our favorite worship songs on our Spotify Playlist.
