Welcome to JLC

Located in Westminster, Maryland, our congregation has been dedicated to worshiping our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ since 1797. We are known as the Beacon on the Hill as our church sits atop the hill at the intersection of Bixler Church and Bachman Valley Roads in Westminster, Maryland.

As part of our community outreach, we support various organizations including, the ELCA, Carroll Lutheran School, Carroll Lutheran Village, NESAP, New Life for Girls, and the Humane Society of Carroll County.  Deacon Donald Helfer leads our congregation in our walk with the Lord.

Our choir is under the direction of Melvin (“Mel”) Pittinger.  Throughout the year, there are special music selections. Mel encourages voice participation in solos, duets, and trios as well as performances on various musical instruments.

Please join us on Sundays at 10:00 am for prayers followed by 10:15 am service.

Worship with the Lord on Sunday mornings and become part of our tight-knit church family. We are small but mighty!
