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: multi-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.
The congregation recently envisioned and formed a community outreach project called the Palisades Hub. Management by the Hub makes the church’s facilities available to the broader community and ensures robust stewardship of our campus. By cultivating a gathering space for people to connect, learn and serve, the church is living out the truth that “Our Middle Name Is Community.”
In February Julie Simonton became the Executive Director of the Palisades Hub.
In October, 2021, Palisades Community Church, by unanimous vote, extended a call to Reverend Ryan Thrasher to serve as their new settled pastor. He began his ministry with PCC in January, 2022.
As the Palisades Hub begins to form its own life and identity, The Palisades Community Church is reclaiming and redefining what it means to be a community of faith. Won’t you join us on this journey?
