General information

Worship at Catoctin happens on Sundays in a traditional-but-casual-style service at 11:00 a.m. The Catoctin Presbyterian Church is a member congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA) in National Capital Presbytery. The Catoctin Presbyterian Church is a community of Christians with diverse gifts of the Spirit. We claim those gifts and work to be responsible in sharing them for the good of all. Seeking to be faithful to our calling as steadfast disciples of the Risen Lord, ... We celebrate our capacity to • Worship lustily, • Nurture wisely, • Share joyfully. We give thanks for • opportunities to witness to God's power at work in our lives, • the will to endure and be steadfast in all circumstances, • the invitation to seek wisdom through the study of God's word and the sharing of life stories and experiences. We yearn for new opportunities to prompt growth on our faith journey, and commit ourselves to finding ways to address those yearnings. We remain open to the transforming power of God's Spirit in our individual lives, as well as within the congregation as a manifestation of the corporate body of Jesus, the Christ.
