Life of our Community

All of us together create the life of our community; that includes you.  We have no paid staff or clergy.  We each have unique gifts, leadings, and resources.  What we individually choose to share and participate in ultimately defines our community.  The results are numerous and varied.  They reflect how successful we are at living out our faith with each other and in the world.  This section of the site offers a glimpse of that life together.

  • Our Witness
    • Prison MinistrySouth Mountain Friends Fellowship at Maryland Correctional Institute-Hagerstown is a Worship Group under our care.
    • People Acting Together in Howard (PATH) – Patapsco participates in this interfaith network of active communities in Howard County, which is an affiliate of the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF).  Like all IAF affiliates, PATH takes responsibility for solving the problems in its own community and works to renew the interest of citizens in public life.
