We enlist, empower and involve people who share a passion for social justice and a common purpose of serving the disadvantaged and marginalized. Located in Bethesda, MD, the Briggs Center for Faith & Action is a 501(c)(3) charitable and non-sectarian religious organization created in 2006 out of the former Briggs Memorial Baptist Church upon the reorganization of the church. Whether you have questions about an ESL class, need help from our immigration services legal clinic, want to help make sandwiches for Martha's Table, are curious to learn more about hospitality opportunities via the Carpenter's House, or something else entirely, we want to hear from you.
