The Silver Spring United Methodist Church was previously known as the Sligo Village Methodist Church and the Woodside United Methodist Church. It was first built in 1872 on Georgia Ave. near Colesville Rd. However, the location raised concerns about safety hazards because of its close proximity to the Washington Woodside and Forest Glen Railway. In 1897, the new subdivision of Woodside donated a plot of land to the church. So, the church was placed on rollers and pulled to its current location on Georgia Ave. by horses.
Today the Silver Spring United Methodist Church has two campuses. The one on Georgia Ave. is the downtown campus, which houses the church's worship center and offices. The other campus is the Four Corners Campus. Located on University Blvd. E. it houses the church's mission center. The Silver Spring United Methodist Church downtown campus is open from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. It closes on Wednesdays and Saturdays. On Sundays, the church is open from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
