Traditional Worship, Progressive Values.
We are a congregation devoted to promoting social justice – caring for the poor, disenfranchised communities and being good stewards of the earth. The instruction to “love one another” (John 15:17) within Jesus’ teaching leads us to practice compassion and promote social justice. We seek to do what Jesus would have us do in Foggy Bottom, the community and the world. We invite you to become part of our caring, supporting community of faith.
