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.

"Update on Rohan Hector our Missionary in St. Vincent & the Grenadines"

Brother Rohan Hector has been the minister at the Richland Park Church of Christ in St. Vincent & the Grenadines for the past 13 years. He graduated from the Trinidad School of Preaching in 2000 and is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Guidance and Counseling from the Jamaica Theological Seminary. Brother Hector last visited our congregation in the summer of 2013 where he participated in our VBS and preached at our worship services for two Sundays. We are the sole supporter of his work at Richland Park.

The congregation at the Richland Park Church of Christ has grown tremendously over the years. Physically they have outgrown their place of worship; they have 38 members and are making plans to expand their building.

This year, Brother Hector began ground work to establish a new congregation in the Village of Greiggs. His plan is to have Sunday afternoon services in the community and invite bible correspondence course students and those that are doing home studies.

Brother Hector held a Gospel Meeting in the Village Greiggs from July 17 – 22, 2016. During this gospel meeting two were baptized into Christ.

Brother Hector has assisted various congregations over the years with preaching and teaching including: Biabou, Bequia, Brighton and Sandy Bay, in St. Vincent & the Grenadines. He is currently providing preaching and teaching assistance to the Bequia Church of Christ on a monthly basis. Since the death of the preacher in Bequia three years ago, Brother Hector has been instrumental in finding preachers to assist the church in their time of need. Members have identified a preacher from Trinidad who is interested in being the permanent minister at Bequia and are striving to raise support for his work there.

Brother Hector teaches a monthly family enhancement class and continues to provide much needed information to many couples and singles. He continues to host the local television program The Bible Speaks on Friday mornings.

Brother Hector has been a faithful servant of the Lord as he spreads the gospel throughout St. Vincent & the Grenadines. Please continue to pray for our missionaries as they continue to answer the Great Commission, Matthew 28: 16-20.

The Benevolence Ministry

The Benevolence Ministry has agreed to collaborate with Sister Lydia Glover and determine if one of her students or family members needs assistance from the Piney Branch apartment fire.  Therefore, the goal is to assist one of sister Glover’s students (or family members) directly based on their specific needs. Sister Glover will be working through Brother Cliff Ivery to provide specific details on how we can assist. Please be patient so that we can provide accurate direction to the members of SSCoC.

Thank you
Brother Jonathan Walker Sr.

"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
