Takoma Park Seventh-day Adventist Church
Our church is a part of the Potomac Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists within the North American Division. We host both contemporary and traditional worship services to meet the worship needs of all who come and worship with us. Are you the type of person who enjoys singing the hymns that are the cornerstone of worship? Maybe you are the kind of person who enjoys more classical choral arrangements? Or perhaps you enjoy just good old praise and worship or more contemporary singing? You are sure to find exactly what your soul needs every Sabbath with us!
