About Us

Our Congregation

Divinity has been worshipping God together and serving our neighbors in the Towson & Baltimore, MD areas since 1960. We are a small community located in a peaceful setting with a heart for learning, growing, and sharing the liberating news of God’s love and grace for all people.
