Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors
If you are searching for someone to believe in and somewhere to call home, you're not alone. Join with others to experience following the way of Christ in this faith community.
We invite you to Sunday worship at 9:30 and 11:00am. Sunday School for all ages is at 9:30. There is a Nursery available during both services and Children's Church for ages 3-7 during the 11:00 service.
In the meantime this website can offer other help. Contact the church office or call 703.671.8557 for further assistance.
Through casual observation, I’m assured you could name the primary business focus of Verizon Wireless or Popeye’s Chicken. In the same vein I ask if you can name the basic mission thrusts of our Christian congregation.
We are starting a series of messages that can help us reaffirm why we are a Christian congregation. These basics of Christianity grow out of Jesus’ great commandment about loving God, and our neighbor as we love ourselves.
September Message Series: Back to Basics
September 14: Love God – Worship
Last Sunday's message addressed the first question in the Westminster Catechism. The chief end of man is to love God and to enjoy God forever. We can love ourselves and others if we are assured that God loves us. We praise God by our worship and in our daily living. Worship enables us to claim our identity as Christians and engage in practices that increase faith. (Joshua 3:1-6 and Matthew 22:34-40)
September 21: Love Yourself – Christian Education
This Sunday, we continue our conversations around our building and our mission, asking the theological questions necessary of Christian communities. We will explore together how our building and our mission are related to the ways in which we come to love ourselves. This will point us toward the practices of nurture, which allow us to live in the fullness of Christ’s new humanity.
September 28: Love Your Neighbor - Serving
We hope these messages will assist us with conversations that swirl around this question: What is the relationship of our basic mission to our facilities? We prayerfully shape and re-shape our programs and services upon the foundation of these basic building blocks of mission. We return to the A,B,C’s of living whole, happy lives.
