Takoma Park Presbyterian Church

Takoma Park, MD


Christ Congregational Church, UCC is an inclusive, questing community of faith seeking to embody Jesus Christ by doing justice, loving kindness and walking humbly with God.

At CCC, we honor and celebrate people of all races, cultures, ages, abilities, sexual orientations and gender identity.

CCC Covenant: We covenant with one another as a community of faith grounded in God, the source of all life. We seek to walk in the ways of God’s abiding love, made known or to be made known to us through the Holy Scriptures, the life and teachings of Jesus, and the continuing guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives and worship. Affirming that all persons are created in the image of God, we honor and celebrate people of all races, cultures, ages, abilities, sexual orientations, and gender identities. In our life together we endeavor to support each other on our spiritual journeys with open minds and loving hearts. We hold it to be the mission of the church to embody the good news of God’s love for all people by laboring for the progress of knowledge, the promotion of justice, and the reign of peace. We work and pray for the transformation of ourselves and all creation into realms of God’s compassion; and in faith we place ourselves in God’s hands, in death as in life.


The mission of Takoma Park Presbyterian Church is to create an environment where all people can gather in the presence of God to seek and nurture faith in Jesus Christ - in themselves, throughout their community, and across the world. Thus begins the current mission statement of Takoma Park Presbyterian Church (TPPC). We are a small, but active church in Takoma Park, Maryland working for social justice from Silver Spring to Jinocuao, Nicaragua. Our church is known as "a church for all people" because our congregation is made up of people of many races, cultures, occupations, ages, and sexual orientations.

We as a church community yearn to:

Be shaped and changed by God Engage our children and youth in church life Address inequalities in our local and global communities Care for our environment Deepen our connections to each other
