Pictured above: First Sunday Gathering, Fall, 2014.
Living Hope Church began meeting in Bowie in the Fall of 2014. We are an outgrowth of Solid Rock Church in Riverdale, Maryland. As Solid Rock grew, we decided to start a new church rather than add multiple Sunday services or build a bigger building. We prayed and discussed this as a church. Then about 65 adults who live in Bowie and surrounding communities began meeting to form a new church.
Our intention is to put the local back into the local church. The majority of our members live in the city where we meet. We found that church life multiplies when members live a short distance from each other. Most of our members live in Bowie, Crofton, Glen Dale, Upper Marlboro, and Davidsonville.
