WHAT'S GOING ON AT ARLINGTON PRESBYTERIAN !
As we move forward with our vision, here are thoughts from our pastor...
"I am steeped in all things Presbyterian and in my relationship with this church I have experienced change.
There are two changes that are most notable for me - the move from an attractional to missional model
of ministry and the intentionality of nurturing spiritual growth, of creating disciples." To read more, click on
On Sunday, November 17, our congregation voted to approve the redevelopment plans for new worship space and church offices, a childcare center, retail consistent with their ministry and affordable housing. We are excited about this next chapter. We have been a forward-thinking congregation since 1908, and our current structure is our third church building. For Arlington Presbyterian, our congregation has always been about the people and the community, and not necessarily about the building. Our decision to partner with the Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing represents our new vision for discipleship, crossroads and affordable housing. We believe in being good stewards of our resources by using our land along Columbia Pike to further this vision, as this redevelopment represents the innovative social change that has been a hallmark of our ministry.
A Poem Written for Arlington Presbyterian
Inspired by the bold action taken by the congregation on Sunday, November 17, a friend, Todd Jenkins, penned the following:
We often fail to see
that History is alive
and not a point in time.
Cultures, societies, and churches
too often forget that she is
much less impressed with our preservation
of a single point in her life,
and much more interested
in us moving forward toward
a more hopeful chapter in her story.
