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.

"Bible Classes"

Why do we offer Bible classes on Sundays and Wednesdays? We also urge members and non-members alike to attend them. Why is this? The following quotation from Martin Luther, the great reformer, provides an explanation. “But now since it is so common that everyone has [the word that Christ preached] written in a book and can read it every day, no one thinks of it as anything special or precious. Yes, we grow sated and neglect it, as if
it had been spoken by some shoemaker rather than the High Majesty of heaven. Therefore it is in punishment for our ingratitude and neglect that we get so little out of it and never feel nor taste what a treasure, power, and might there is in the words of Christ. But whoever has the grace to recognize it as the Word of God rather than the work of man, will also think of it more highly and dearly, and will never grow sick and tired of it.” 

The prophet Amos, spoke of a famine, “not a famine for bread or a thirst for water, but rather for hearing the words of the Lord.” (Amos 8: 11)  On TV quiz shows, when the  category is “the Bible” contestants generally display gross ignorance. Similar ignorance was shown by a church member who spoke of Abraham as a Christian.

Our Bible classes are designed as “famine relief!”

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
