Maryland Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church USA within the Baltimore Presbytery.
The Church was chartered as a new church development in 1957 in a wooded section of the Gunpowder River watershed, north of Towson, that was being developed as part of the post WW II suburban boom. The neighborhood is now a stable, residential enclave just north of the Baltimore Beltway (I 695) and very much part of the Baltimore metro area.
MPC enjoyed a robust ministry to families with a vibrant and well-known emphasis on social justice and outreach ministries throughout the early decades of its life. By the early 1990s, however, the congregation recognized that “the children had grown up and moved away” and it was time to “re-vision” its ministry for the new millennium.
Following an intensive 2 ½ year process of discernment and planning begun in 2002 we now organize our life and ministry around a set of core values that have reenergized the congregation. We enjoy regional and national recognition for several of our core ministries.
Visitors and newcomers say they immediately recognize and appreciate the way our worship combines a deep spirituality with a progressive theological integrity along with our commitment to building a more just and peaceful world.
Our relatively small size (just over 100 members) encourages and supports genuine caring as we grow together in our life as disciples of Jesus and in learning to approach the challenges of the 21st century in faith and hope.
