Montgomery Village Foundationwww.montgomeryvillage.com
Conceptualized and built in the 1960s and 1970s by Kettler Brothers Incorporated, Montgomery Village is a unique planned community in the heart of Montgomery County, Maryland. This pioneer “new town” ushered in previously unheard of planning and housing types in the county and became a model for many future housing developments in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and beyond. Montgomery Village is home to more than 40,000 residents, and is conveniently located close to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, with the technology corridor in between. The Village celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2016.
With growing employment and plenty of amenities, Montgomery Village is home to an abundance of rolling green hills, beautiful parks, lakes and cherry blossoms. With an abundance of housing choices, Montgomery Village is the ideal place for singles looking to establish themselves, families to expand and thrive or seniors to begin the next phase of their lives.
Henley Construction is a family-owned contractor. We create quality projects through proactive solutions, experience and personal attention, because where we live and work matters.

National Capital Presbyterywww.thepresbytery.org
National Capital Presbytery comprises 104 churches in four counties in Virginia, five counties in Maryland and the District of Columbia, speaking eleven languages in worship on a Sunday. Spread across the Washington DC metro area, the National Capital Presbytery is a diverse tapestry of people, churches and relationships.
Our churches are involved in ministry within their own neighborhoods, in partnership with each other across the presbytery, in partnership with other congregations and faith groups. We count more than 100 global ministry partnerships with congregations in Cuba, Haiti, Mexico and around the world to Hong Kong, Korea, Cameroon, Kenya and everywhere in between.
Our churches are forming New Worshipping Communities. We are discovering new forms of ministry for this new cultural context in which God is sending us. We come here from East and West and North and South and sit together and celebrate God’s amazing action that has called us together. We are Evangelical and Progressive, black, white, Hispanic, Anglo, Asian, African, even European. We worship in a variety of familiar “classical” styles as well as at least ten types of other worship expression styles.
We strive to strengthen and transform our congregations to be Missional, Pastoral and Prophetic:
- By gathering regularly to be in relationship and generative discernment
- Encouraging mission networks amongst our churches and in the wider community
- In worship that refreshes, identifies, forms, reforms and informs us
- Providing relational accountability that encourages each of us toward increased faithfulness and service
- We are less a “meeting” and more an organic web of relationships and interconnectedness amongst our people and our churches
- Providing a community across our differences that is a witness to a culture that is far too sectarian, divisive and self-isolating.

Darnestown Presbyterian Churchwww.darnestownpc.org
At Darnestown Presbyterian Church our mission is to welcome all, share Christ’s word, and build community.
To fulfill our mission, we seek to embody these five core values:
- To welcome all. When we say we welcome everyone, we mean it. We recognize the strength that comes from a diversity of backgrounds and views coming together. We believe that we grow as individuals when we are exposed to different ideas.
- To make disciples. Jesus commanded his disciples to make disciples, so we work to equip ourselves to go out in the world and share the good news of Jesus. We do this through vital worship that prepares us for the week ahead, through setting an example of Jesus’ love in how we treat others, and through continuously growing in our own faith. We would love to be a Church for everyone, but know that it is more important for everyone to find their right Church.
- To practice grateful generosity. In gratitude for all that we have been given, we give generously of our time and resources to help those in need. As individuals, we have unique talents that when combined with the talents of others in our church family and the community, help to strengthen both our congregation and the community.
- To maintain a lifelong faith journey. As disciples of Jesus, we recognize that our journey of faith and finding meaning is lifelong. We engage in worship, study, and prayer toward an ever more fully-developed Christian life in Jesus’ example. We recognize that we are all at different places in our faith journey and that each of us has the potential to impact another’s. We value questions, honesty and wonder.
- To be a caring family. We do feel like a family at DPC. We care about and take care of each other, and we take that responsibility seriously. We recognize that families come in all shapes and sizes, and we treasure being an additional source of family support for our members as we journey through this life together.
