The Palisades Community Church is a progressive, welcoming, intentionally diverse congregation located in the northwest quadrant of Washington, DC. We are nearly one hundred years old: post-denominational, dedicated to religious inclusiveness, and committed to giving back to our community and world.

We believe that all people are unconditionally welcome and that the teachings of Jesus call us to love and serve all of our neighbors, both in the Washington, DC community and beyond.

Exciting Transitions in 2020

The congregation recently envisioned and formed a non-profit ministry called the Palisades Hub, which will manage the building.

In February the Rev. Ruth Everhart began to serve as Transitional Senior Pastor.

As the Palisades Hub takes shape, the congregation is reclaiming and redefining what it means to be a community of faith. Won’t you join us on this journey?
