Agapé Mission Church
We are Agapé Mission Church. The first word of our name is the Greek word "Agapé," which conveys this meaning - the completely undeserved and sacrificial love of God. We have fellowship communities on twelve college campuses in Maryland, DC, Pennsylvania and North Carolina. Our desire is to see the students at MICA experience the power of god's love that has changed our lives. For more information about us and what we believe, please visit our website.
Central Presbyterian Church
Central Presbyterian Church is located in south Towson, 15 minutes from MICA's campus. We have a variety of worship services, small group discussions, young adults activities, and many community service projects that you are welcome to join.
Worship Services: We have two contemporary worship services, at 9:00 and 10:45 each Sunday morning, and one traditional/classical service at 10:45, as well as special services throughout the year. Because we believe God is creative and the source of all beauty, we seek to incorporate many artists and art forms in our worship--music, painting, dance, photography, film--so there will always be opportunities to share your gifts here.
Community Service Opportunities: Ever wondered how you can use your artistic talent to serve those in need in our community? We are in the beginning stages of developing an arts training program for people affected or infected by HIV/AIDS, in partnership with other non-profit organizations, and are looking for artists to help. This is only a periodic commitment (once every 1-2 months) but may require some training (provided).
The Franciscan Center, founded by the Franciscan Sisters of Baltimore in 1968, is an outreach agency with a mission to provide emergency assistance and supportive outreach to persons who are economically disenfranchised in an effort to assist them in realizing their self-worth and dignity as people of God.
We serve people in need regardless of age, race, creed or national origin. Some are unable to work due to chronic illness. Some are homeless. Some earn wages below the poverty guideline. Some are members of families who have lost their means of support. Some suffer from mental illness. Some have HIV/AIDS.
Our goal is to give immediate response and relief to our clients' emergency needs and help them resolve the conditions that place them at risk.
HopeSprings exists to provide hope and healing to those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. We are a faith-based organization that is awakening, equipping and engaging volunteers in acts of service to local HIV/AIDS service provider organizations.
