Exploring the Religious Diversity of Howard County, Maryland

Howard County, Maryland is a vibrant and diverse community, and this is reflected in its range of religious communities. From Protestant denominations to Roman Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Mormons, Christian Scientists, Seventh-day Adventists, Mennonites, Baha'is, Quakers and Unitarian Universalists, there is something for everyone. One of the most iconic religious sites in the county is the Guilford Church of Christ, also known as Old Brick Church. This historic Episcopal church is located in Columbia and was one of the first to be built in the state after the American Revolution.

It was funded by a parishioner's voter tax on tobacco in Elkridge Landing. Inside, the paneled gallery is a simple yet powerful interpretation of much larger churches built during the 18th century in major Episcopal cities such as Philadelphia and London. The Church of Christ is just one example of the many religious communities that can be found in Howard County.
