Inspiration

Draw The Circle: The 40 Day Prayer Challenge

Drawing from forty days of true stories, Mark Batterson applies the principles of his New York Times bestselling book The Circle Maker to teach us a new way to pray. As thousands of readers quickly became many tens of thousands, true stories of miraculous and inspiring answers to prayer began to pour in, and as those stories were shared, others were bolstered in their faith to pray with even more boldness.

Community Post

Food Pantry

If you run short of a staple of goods during the month, then let us know.  The First AME Food Pantry may be able to assist.  Let others in the community know that they can count on First AME for canned food and other limited grocery items.  Thanks to all who faithfully provide food and grocery items for the Food Pantry!

Monthly Feeding Programs

We provide a monthly meal to the Men’s Shelter on the first Saturday of the month and the Women’s Center on the third Monday of the month.  Anyone willing to cook, donate, or serve, please contact Sister Sheryl Silvera-Moore at choffice@firstamegaithersburg.org or at 240-632-9760.

Additional hands are needed Saturday mornings (once a month) to sort, package, and distribute.  Not available on Saturdays?  If you are willing to purchase items for the Montgomery County Food Grant segment of the program, please contact Sister Sheryl Silvera-Moore at choffice@firstamegaithersburg.org or at 240-632-9760.

Vision News Post

Pastor Barbara Y, Glenn, our spiritual leader, delivered a sermon to the congregation where she articulated a Vision for our church. Her Vision was to “Build an organization that was dedicated to discipleship, education, economic empowerment and the expansion of the ministry:

“Can You See IT”

EXALTING, EQUIPPING, EMPOWERING, EXPANDING &
EXPRESSING THE GOSPEL!

Diverse in culture, United in Faith

We see a Church, in the midst of diversity, Exalting Christ, Praying & PRAISING with one voice to God’s Glory and the community’s benefit;

We see a Church, maturing in the faith, Equipping & Empowering God’s People. Filled with young people & not so young learning skills for living & serving God;

We see a Church not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ, Empowered to act boldly in Expanding God’s Kingdom as souls come To Christ through witness and Evangelism;

We see a Church Expressing God’s love through ministry & fellowship.
