The catoctin church is a group of Christians, baptized into the body of the one and only savior Jesus Christ, who strive together to serve him.  We regularly meet together to study God's word, to worship God, to pray, and to encourage each other.

Thurmont is located between Gettysburg PA and Frederick MD, and calls itself the "Gateway to the Mountains".  There are many nearby attractions include the Catoctin Mountain National Park, Mt St. Mary's University, the National Emergency Training Center, Gettysburg National Military Park (Battlefield), Antietam National Battlefield, the former Fort Richie, and Fort Detrick.  We are also within easy driving distance to the Nations Capital, and Baltimore MD.  We would be honored to have you worship with us when you are in the area.

Our worship services follow the biblical pattern of worship with acappella congregational singing, prayer, study of God's word,  weekly partaking of the Lord's Supper, and we take up a collection from our members.

Our congregation has moved to our new building at  140 N. Carroll St, Thurmont MD 21788.  Follow the "Industrial Area" signs at the Rt 550 intersection.   All are welcome at our worship services and bible classes.

Our building Project:
On 14 July 2013 we started worshipping in our new building at 140 N. Carroll St. having outgrown our rented facility of 14 years. Construction took just 24 weeks once ground was broken. Our thanks to Palmer Construction Company for doing such a fine job on the construction. Our thanks to all the individuals and congregations that have contributed to make our new building a reality. But most of all, our thanks to GOD that has made this possible and watched over us and answered our prayers throughout this project.
