Sunday Parking

Parking Lot: Our 42-space parking lot located at 821 N. Howard Street is available for members and guests on Sunday mornings from 7a to 1p. You do not need to pay to park on Sundays from 7a-1p.

  • In addition, the lot is available for Thursday evening choir rehearsals, though choir hangtags must be displayed in order to use any non-reserved spot. Please contact Jason Kissel if you need a hangtag.
  • Parking by members and guests at ALL OTHER TIMES is restricted to either the nine (9) Green Reserved Spaces OR with a Day Pass, purchased on-line.
Day Passes must be obtained by visiting website, entering the lot location and date, and paying $9 with credit card. One can then either print the Day Pass and display it on your dash or instead enter the vehicle’s license plate number so the towing company does not tow your vehicle.
Please do not leave valuables in your parked vehicle.

Street Parking: Ample street parking is also available on any of the surrounding streets. Monday-Friday there are permit restrictions and please be sure to look at signs before parking and leaving your car.

Event Parking

In addition to our lot and street parking, University of Maryland Medical Center Mid-Town Campus garage is located one block west of the church on Madison Street, and a pay parking lot is at the corner of Read & Charles Streets, three blocks from church.
