Our City

“God bade me love one spot and serve it.”
—G. K. Chesterton

IF YOU'RE NEW TO MONTGOMERY COUNTY, WELCOME!

Since the first settlers arrived in the 1730s, Montgomery County has grown from a rural, farming community to a sprawling suburbia of over one million residents.

With the explosive growth of immigration to the County since the 1980s, Gaithersburg has become the most ethnically diverse city in the United States according to a 2016 study by WalletHub. The area is immigrant-friendly, with easy access to affordable housing, health services, education and public transportation.

We hope these pages will help you connect with the history and culture of the community as well as services and ministries that will benefit you.
