Welcome

We are a progressive multi-denominational, family-oriented, welcoming congregation located in the northwest quadrant of Washington, DC.  We are excited to be enjoying our 96th year in the Palisades community at 5200 Cathedral Avenue, N.W.

Our worship service begins at 10 am with nursery available. Between September and mid-June, we have a fellowship time each Sunday after the service at 11 am in Memorial Hall.  In the summer months, we enjoy coffee outside in the Eternity Garden at 9:30, before worship. Many of our regular attendees walk to church because they live in the neighborhood. Many drive in from other parts of Washington DC, Maryland or Northern Virginia.

Though we aren’t connected to a particular denomination, many of our members grew up in United Methodist, Lutheran or Baptist congregations and have found home with us.  Our theology is open-minded, grounded in the traditions of the mainline church and liturgical.

Because we believe in the power of racial reconciliation and missions, we are a member of the International Council of Community Churches.  The Council is an international, intercultural, interracial fellowship of churches and ministry centers which seeks to realize Christian unity in local, national and world relations.
