Christmas Eve Service of Lessons and Carols
Tuesday, December 24, 7:00 p.m.
Join us for our Christmas Eve candlelight Service of Lessons and Carols, Tuesday, December 24, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. The service is based on the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols from King’s College, Cambridge, UK. We will read scripture lessons prophesying, describing, and interpreting the birth of Jesus Christ, interspersed with choir anthems and familiar carols, and Pastor David Douthett will offer a brief sermon. We’ll close the service by lighting candles as we sing the last hymn. It’s a lovely and meaningful way to welcome Christ into the world.

Sunday Worship at 11:00 a.m.
Thanks for stopping by our website. When the congregation was founded over 250 years ago, I’m sure those folk couldn’t imagine the sort of connections we can make today. But even after all this time, the bedrock of our church’s life is still the same. We have faith in Jesus Christ, and we do our best as a community to follow him and to love and support one another.
So, yes, we are a historic church within a historic village. But we have to deal with the challenges of contemporary life like everyone else. We believe discovering who Christ is, being in relationship with Christ and others, and serving Christ by helping our neighbors is what gives life its meaning and purpose. Sometimes we nail it, and sometimes we fail. Either way, we keep trying to help each other down the road. That’s why we say we’re a community growing in faith, hope, love, and witness to Jesus Christ.
We hope you’ll enjoy our website as an introduction to Catoctin Presbyterian Church, and that you’ll come for a visit sometime soon.
Grace and peace,
Pastor David Douthett

We are often called “people of the middle way,” for our moderate views and open mindedness. Learn more about our denomination’s beliefs and theology.
