約在2008年銀泉市母會有一個家庭遷居到蒙郡西北新開的科堡地區,那地方本是一片農田與荒地,後因蒙郡人口不斷上升,市政府決定把它改成稠密的住宅區。母會雅各主任牧師有鑑於即將有許許多多的華人家庭會搬到科堡,是未來傳福音的好地方,就立時呼召鄰近地區的信徒,與那家庭開始一個查經班並在2008年十月正式成立分堂。

分堂開始由孫牧師及何燊長老帶領。其後,孫牧師於2011加州牧會,何長老因家庭因素減少事工的參與,2012年由梁國柱長老接手,稍後吳銘鎮長老加入為同工。為了分堂長遠發展,必須有適合的全職傳道人。經過多年的禱告與尋找,神差派楊征基傳道在2018年復活節就職,負責科堡分堂的事工。

分堂事工一直按部就班地發展,從最初的查經拓展到主日崇拜,繼續加上週六禱告會,成人與兒童主日學,並舉辦了許多節日與週年慶的聚會,邀請朋友們參加。

早期的主日崇拜是在周日下午三點舉行,租用一座美國浸信會的活動房屋,由孫牧師分享神的的話孫牧師離開後,由長老們輪流講道下午聚會對不少弟兄姊妹新朋友們而言,卻不是合適的時間。感謝神,聽了我們多年的禱告,終於租到科堡的Little Bennett小學,自20141012日正式開始早上聚會至今

科堡分堂主要的福音對像是中國的移民與學者會友對傳福音有迫切感,經常把握機會邀請朋友來崇拜,並向人傳福音,主的恩典也明顯可見,每年有新肢體受洗歸入教會。我們特別看到是一人得救,全家得救的真實性有不少父母從中國來一年半載,幫忙照顧孫兒女,有機會聽到福音,從眼見兒女們因信耶穌基督為救主的改變,而認識到福音的大能,自己也信主願意受洗歸入主的名下。

分堂是流動性很大的福音站,神不斷把新人帶到教會,但也有因工作原因居他處回國而離去。會友一般在美國時間不太長,面對環境的適應,語言不通,孩子學習問題等等,所以除了靈命關懷外,生活上的需要,也是關懷事工的重點。未來盼望能藉著弟兄姊妹們同心合意的在科堡地區傳揚福音,帶領更多人認識基督,進入神的榮耀國度,蒙恩蒙福!

Around 2008, Chinese Christian Church of Greater Washington, DC had a family moved to the newly developed Clarksburg area in the northwest of Montgomery County. This area was originally a farmland. After the population of Montgomery County continued to rise, the city government decided to develope Clarksburg into a residential area. In view of the fact that many Chinese families will be moving to Clarksburg, Pastor Sun, mother church's senior pastor, envisioned that it will be a good place to spread the gospel in the future, and immediately called on believers in the neighboring area to start a Bible study group; and a branch church was formally established in October 2008.

At the beginning, Pastor Sun and Elder Mark Ho led the branch church. Later, Pastor Sun moved to California in 2011. Elder Ho reduced his participation due to family situations. In 2012, Elder KC Leung took over. Later, Elder Daniel Wu also joined as a co-worker. Realizing that for the long-term development of the branch, we would need a full-time minister. After years of prayer, God sent Minister Nathaniel Yang to join us on Easter 2018 and took charge of the ministry at Clarksburg.

The ministry has been developed step by step, from the initial Bible study class to Sunday worship, continued with Saturday prayer meetings, Sunday school for adults and children, and held many festivals and anniversary celebrations to invite friends to participate.

In the early days, Sunday worship was held at 3 pm on Sunday, renting an American Baptist church's mobile classroom, and Pastor Sun sharing God's words. After Pastor Sun left, the elders took turns preaching. But the afternoon meeting was not the right time for many brothers and sisters and new friends. Thank God, after listening to our prayers for many years, we finally rented Little Bennett Elementary School in Clarksburg for Sunday worship. We had officially started to meet in the morning since October 12, 2014.

The main gospel audiences of the Clarksburg Church are Chinese immigrants and scholars. The members have a sense of urgency for evangelism. They often seize the opportunity to invite friends to worship and evangelize. The grace of the Lord is also obvious. Every year, new members are baptized into the church. What we see in particular is the evidence of one person’s salvation and spreading to the whole family: many grand parents came from China for a year or so to help taking care of their grandchildren, have the opportunity to hear the gospel, and see their children’s change because they believe in Jesus Christ and trusting the power of the gospel,  many grand parents also believed and were baptized into the Lord.

The branch church is a gospel station with a mobile congregation. Although God continues to bring new people to the church, there are also many moved to other places for work or other reasons, or to leave the country. Many generally do not spend much time in the United States, facing new environment adjustments, language barriers, children's learning problems, etc. Therefore, in addition to spiritual care, their physical cares are also the focus of our ministries. In the future, we hope to spread the gospel in the Clarksburg area through brothers and sisters, and lead more people to know Christ and enter the glorious kingdom of God.
