Crofton in Photos - First Baptist Church of Crofton

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc.


It's Sunday morning, and some of my neighbors will gather at one of the many places of worship in our community.

First Baptist Church of Crofton - copyright mwoda First Baptist Church of Crofton, located on Crofton Parkway, is the first House of Worship you see when you drive into the communty via Clubhouse Gate Rd.

If memory serves me correctly, the architecture is modeled after Bruton Parish Church in Historic Williamsburg.  Built in 1968 with the help of Crofton developer Hamilton Crawford, it is located at the heart of the community near the Crofton Village Green and Crofton Country Club Clubhouse.

There's a very informative church website, and I encourage you to visit it for more information.  You'll find the Church history, its schedule, ministries, Sunday School and even the Pastor's blog.


There are many other places of worship in the Crofton area, as well, and I'll be featuring them someday soon:

Bell Branch Seventh Day Adventist Church * Community United Methodist Church * Faith Community Church * First Baptist Church of Crofton * Harvest Assembly of God * Middle Atlantic Community Church * Nevey Shalom - The Jewish Congregation of Belair * Prince of Peace Presbyterian Church * St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church * St. Paul's Lutheran Church of Crofton * St. Stephen's Episcopal Church.

Additionally, military personnel who live in the Crofton area often prefer to attend services or Mass at the U.S. Naval Academy Chapel or on post at one of the churches at Fort Meade.


In 2009, I'll be taking time each Sunday to "Focus on Crofton" (which also happens to be the name of my community and real estate blog) and feature one of my many Crofton photos on

If relocation to the D.C. - Baltimore area is in your plans for the coming months, I hope these photos will show you what a beautiful place Crofton is to live. We'd love to have you become a homeowner in our community, and I'll work very hard to help you find the right neighborhood and right home if you choose me as your agent.

Margaret:  Wonderful localism post.  I don't even think of talking about churches, but it is definitely something relocating families are interested in.  You should include the link for the church in the post.

Hi Margaret, Great post and photo.  I have been thinking about doing a post on churches here.  Chris Ann is right, this is something relocating families are interested in.

Chris and Shirley - The link is in the first line of the second paragraph!  Yes, you're right, it IS important to relocating families.  My daughter bought a new home in June, and she's not happy with her parish church - she's still looking for one where she will be comfortable.  Her relocation to Texas has been the source of much inspiration for me.

Thanks for your comments and your loyal readership, ladies!

Hi Margaret!  Great localism and local history post!  I love the photo and the history part of this post!  I'm a huge history buff and you could write all day about the history of your area--yours is certainly quite rich with history and what a beautiful area too. 

Enjoy your Sunday!

What a great idea to use a local picture as inspiration for a weekly post.  That is a sure fire way to provide information that only a local expert would know!

Lisa, Thank you.  I think everyone likes photos, and it won't be hard to come up with 52 of them to get us through this year.  Now, I may have to start repeating after that.  LOL.

Debe, I agree that a little history is always interesting, especially for prospective buyers and recent owners who may not be aware of it.  Thanks for commenting.
