Now, a small group, called "amigos in Jesus" continues fellowship on Sundays at 1 p.m.
Come and join us!
Since January 2017, Lanham launched a multi-contextual congregation with a new ministry, called "The Hispanic and Latino Ministry." With the vision of Rev. Park on a multi-contextual ministry that embraces all of lives came to fruition after three years of preliminary works, including demographic study on the parish, sermon series and theological imperative on Lanham. A group of 7 taskforce tirelessly work for its initiation. This project started as three-year work beginning with Awareness Phase (2017), Ownership Phase (2018) and Fruit-bearing Phase (2019). The members of Lahham are excited about this strategic work that will perfect the inclusive ministries as they commit each year at their baptismal reaffirmation: "We uphold the church that Christ has
opened to all people, nations, and races!"
Under the supervision of the Rev. Rebecca Iannicelli - District Superintendent of
The Washington-East District, Lanham started this ministry as the first church in the
District. Lanham is now the 8th congregation with the Hispanic and Latino ministry of 626
local churches of the Baltimore-Washington Conference. With the consultation of
Emma Escobar, Conference Director of Hispanic and Latino Ministry, Lanham
works on "Ownership Phase. Due to the discontinuation of funding, Council
decides to explore a different venue.
