Welcome

Whether you have visited Damascus Road Community Church already, or have yet to do so, our doors are open. Welcome!

From a few dozen families, through over 15 years of growing pains we were thrilled to finally, literally open our very own church doors in the spring of 2012 on Old National Pike between New Market and Mt. Airy, Maryland.

Today the community of individuals and families that make-up Damascus Road are a bustling collection of singles, parents, students and kids from the many corners of our region, from all walks of life, and from every step along the faith path… from lifetime followers of Christ to those wondering what Christianity is about.

Our mission is to be: A Community of Light by the Power of the LORD Jesus Christ. Such a mission doesn’t allow us to indulge in a status quo existence, but rather compels us to trust and obey Jesus Christ as the “Light of the world”, and then to “let our light shine” in our spheres of influence. Hence, we have lots going on in the church, in our neighborhood and around the world. Please browse through our website to learn more about who we are and what we believe.

Getting Started INQUIRE REGISTER

New to DRCC? Join pastors, staff and other guests for a simple dinner and an invitation to start your Damascus Road journey by catching our vision: A Community of Light by the Power of the LORD Jesus Christ. This class occurs periodically through the year. Childcare registration needed one week before class.

Get Connected INQUIRE

If you attended the Getting Started class, we would like to invite you to take the next step. This is your opportunity to find out all the ways to connect at DRCC.

Be a Member INQUIRE REGISTER

All who follow Jesus as Lord and Savior are called to be part of a community of Christ (Romans 12:4-5; 15:5-7; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Ephesians 4:12-16). That’s God’s plan. Covenant membership unites us in the shared mission of this congregation as together we discover God’s purpose for our lives. Here are the steps to covenant membership:

  • Accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord.
  • Be baptized into the faith. Questions about Baptism?
  • Complete our online DRCC Orientation.
  • Select Register to attend the next Covenant Membership class.
  • Sign the DRCC Membership Covenant at the end of the class.

BELONG

We belong to Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. And He invites us to belong to a community of faith. Whether a lifetime Christian, a new believer or just curious about the faith, you are welcome here at Damascus Road Community Church. Understand what we believe, who makes up our leadership team and the pathway to membership.

CONNECT

In a larger church it can be a challenge to feel personally connected. Allow us to help you. Whether searching for calendar information, a larger event in which to get a better taste of DRCC, a smaller group to be a part of, or personal care for the struggles and celebrations of life… this is a good place to start.

GROW

Grow in biblical knowledge and spiritual wisdom. Know what you believe and how to apply it to your everyday life. Sink deep roots into God’s Word through our ministries, classes or sermon library resources, and be better equipped to give an answer for your faith, discern truth and weather the storms of life.

GIVE

As Christ gave his life for us, so also we give back to our local community of faith a portion of our time, talent and treasure. In so doing we release the grip of selfishness and idolatry in our lives. And our brothers and sisters receive the encouragement they need to carry on.

GO

Beyond our home, school and workplace, Damascus Road Community Church offers opportunities to go near and far in sharing the Good News of Christ through tangible acts of service. Our missions’ teams partner with established churches and pastors to spread the Gospel, nurture long-term relationships and build sustainable solutions to address needs for today and into the future.
