Whoever you are or whatever your situation, we invite you to get to know us and experience the love of God and the power of the gospel in the midst of our church family.

Join us for Sunday Worship
We offer two identical worship services each sunday at:
9:00 am & 11:00 am
3910 Lorcom Lane
Arlington, VA 22207
What to Expect
Our worship service consists of a blend of traditional and contemporary music, a time of confession, Scripture reading(s), prayer, and a practical and relevant message from the Bible. Our current service is about 60 minutes long. Twice a month, our service includes a time of Communion (a practice where we remember and celebrate Christ’s sacrifice for us) with individually-wrapped packages of bread (cracker) and juice.
During COVID-19, we’re practicing social distancing, wearing face coverings, and registering to attend Sunday worship. Learn more and register here. Please plan on staying for fellowship after the service outside, as weather permits. We’d love to get the chance to meet you!
We would love to meet you! The best way to do that in this COVID season is to stay afterwards for fellowship after the service and introduce yourself to one of our pastors, complete our Visitor Form online, or contact our church office.
Children are welcome to join their parents in the worship service. We are seeking to create a welcoming atmosphere during COVID-19, so crying and fidgeting are expected! You can always step outside with them to our “restless child” area and watch the service on livestream, if needed. When you register to attend, please let us know their ages, and we will prepare a sermon activity bag just for them!
We are not currently offering children’s Sunday school or nursery during COVID-19 but hope to be able to return to this soon. We are currently testing a limited-capacity nursery program, however registration is required. Please contact our children’s ministry director Kelli Dudley for further information.
Sixth-12th graders are encouraged to attend the worship service as their main discipleship activity on Sunday mornings. Additional opportunities for teen discipleship in small groups and electives take place in room #122 from 10:15-10:45 am.
