Cummins Memorial Church is an historic Reformed Episcopal Church building located at 1210 West Lanvale Street in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. It is a Gothic Revival-style church executed in granite ashlar. It features a high-pitched gable roof; a short, two-staged tower with a slate-shingled, hexagonal roof; and a large stained glass, lancet window with wood tracery. It was erected in 1878 for the Cummins Memorial Reformed Episcopal Church, a memorial to George David Cummins (1822-1876), and originally named Church of the Rock of Ages.[2] The building is now Emmanuel Christian Community Church.

Cummins Memorial Church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
