Thus begins the current mission
statement of Takoma Park Presbyterian Church (TPPC). We
are a small, but active church in Takoma Park, Maryland
working for social justice from Silver Spring to Jinocuao,
Our church is known as "a church for all people" because
our congregation is made up of people of many races,
cultures, occupations, ages, and sexual orientations.
A summary of what we learned from our listening campaign appears
We as a church community yearn to:
Be shaped and changed by God
Engage our children and youth in church life
Address inequalities in our local and global
Care for our environment
Deepen our connections to each other

Sunday School classes for children and adults at 9:30 AM,
