Evergreen A.M.E. Church History
Evergreen African Episcopal Church was founded in 1859 on Mt. Olivet Lane. For many years, it was part of the Carroll Circuit with Mt. Calvary African Methodist Episcopal Church, which was established in 1883 on Windsor Mill Road. During the early 1940′s, the two congregations used the same facility at Evergreen’s present site – 3340 Old Frederick Road. Although the Mt. Calvary’s descendants enjoyed their independence, all worship services and financial responsibilities were consolidated into one congregation.
In the June 29, 2009 edition of the City Search page, a viewer wrote, “Great place to be, Evergreen is a community church that is comfortable to be in. You feel the spirit when you enter the doors. The congregation is very people oriented, and the pastor is down to earth. If you visit once, you will return. You will leave the church talking about how friendly everyone is or was to you. The word is brought forth in a way that anyone can understand. Evergreen loves to worship the Lord.”
