Welcome to Old Otterbein United Methodist Church


Looking for a welcoming, diverse church, open to all, in downtown Baltimore?

Old Otterbein Church welcomes everyone– we’re diverse, in many ways.

We’re an historic yet "happening" home for worshippers seeking to enrich their spiritual life. We’ve served as a cornerstone in the heart of Baltimore since 1771, mid-way between the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards.

Fellowship in the parish hall follows the worship service.

Please come as you are!

A Reconciling Congregation
