What is the Silver Spring Church of Christ?

link to the Spanish Ministries link to directions

A better question would be who is the Silver Spring Church of Christ? We are a body of people who believe that Jesus Christ is Lord -- meaning that God lived on earth in the form of Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus Christ taught us how to live, died for our sins, rose from the dead (to demonstrate that He really was God) and now sits at the right hand of the Father.

Our congregation consists of people from every race, of many languages and nationalities (about 25 nations represented on a typical Sunday morning!), of all ages, educational levels, marital statuses, and economic levels.

We are all sinners who have thrown ourselves on the grace of God, and we live with a joy and peace because God graciously forgives. God's Holy Spirit lives in us, and changes us from what we should otherwise be without Him.

"Thank you Elders, Deacons and All!"

Adapting to the change of schedule and address is nothing in compari-son to what the Elders, Deacons and all who are working hard these weeks, are going through.

We thank the Elders and all the members of University Park church of Christ for receiving Silver Spring church of Christ in your building. Not just receiv-ing us; but adapting to our needs, moving many chairs and other equipment for our convenience, even scrubbing floors preparing extra classrooms for us. Thank you very much and may God bless you!

We thank the Elders, Deacons and other members of Silver Spring and outside brethren, who are carrying the weight and/or accomplishing every-thing that is needed to have a more efficient parking lot at Silver Spring. We appreciate your hard work very much!

We thank the Elders, Deacons and all the brethren, who are contributing to the Mid Atlantic Youth Forum at camp WAMAVA this weekend. Your labor in the Lord doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you for being a blessing to our youth this way, may God bless you and your families!

We know that the hard work is done without expecting any kind of glory from men; but the next verse is so true: “Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” (1Corinthians 15:58)

But for the rest of us who witness their hard work, the next verse is also true: “Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.” (1Thessalonians 5:12-13)

Let us all work hard serving the Lord. If we do that, He would share with us higher ministries beside Him.  Matthew 25:23 says: “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

"The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, 'The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!'  The LORD is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him. So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the LORD."

Lamentations 3:22-26
