Welcome to Poolesville Presbyterian Church

We may be small, but we're huge at heart

Church is a place to find comfort, wrestle with the big questions, to make a difference, to encounter the presence of God.

Poolesville Presbyterian Church is in the business of making disciples of Jesus Christ. Discipleship is a lifelong process so we welcome children, youth, adults, and the elderly alike. On Sundays we worship together and hold Sunday School.

Throughout the week we gather for various reasons: to serve food at the soup kitchen, to rehearse choir, to care for those in need, and offering free computer help. PPC is a small church with a lot going on. We treasure the human touch and we also embrace technology. Our newest venture epitomizes the connection of these two things, a cybercafe called the Connection Cafe: a ministry of hospitality connecting people to the Internet, to each other, and to God. We hope you'll stop by some Wednesday.

Our historic facilities are not large or impressive, but we do a lot with what we have. We believe that above all else, we are called to be Jesus' hands and feet in a broken world. We are always growing in faith, both as individuals and as a community. Won't you join us? May God's peace rest upon you. Shalom!
