Abbott Church has been an integral part of the southeast Baltimore community known as Highlandtown almost from the time it was still known as Snake Hill. Our church manse was once the home of the very first neighborhood resident, Thomas McGuinness. Abbott has always sought to be a church, not only in Highlandtown, but also for Highlandtown. We want to be a church that is constantly pursuing justice, compassion, righteousness, healing, wholeness and peace in our community.
We Care Center — The “We Care” ministry of Abbott Church serves the Highlandtown community by providing food and clothing to our friends and neighbors in need on the 1st and 2nd Saturday of each month. The center is open from 11:00-1:00.
Abbott Tutoring Center — Abbott Church, in partnership with neighborhood schools, provides tutoring to neighborhood students in need of academic help. Students are recommended for the program by their school and are then partnered with an adult tutor for one on one assistance with homework and tutoring. The program takes place on Tuesday evenings through out the school year from 5:45 to 7:00 pm. Students are provided a meal before the tutoring session and afterwards have supervised playtime in the gym.
Abbott Summer Camp — Camp is a great week of making new friends, reconnecting with old ones, enjoying the great out-doors, swimming in the pool, and playing old favorite games like Sneak, Capture the Flag and Fruit Find. Camp is the first full week of July each year and is for kids in 4th through 8th grade.
