The fourth Sunday of every month we gather at 5:00 p.m. instead of 11:00 a.m.  Our next faith@five is

Sunday, August 24.  Come join us for a salad supper followed by worship!


As we move forward with our vision, here are some 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

The Church Alive

A Family Reunion is being planned and you’re invited!!!!

This summer the liturgical collective (Arlington, Clarendon, Church of the Covenant, and Fairlington Presbyterian Churches along with our friend Leslianne Braunstein) is hosting a family reunion with the help of the Genesis passages from the lectionary. 

 We all know that summer is a time for families to get together—beach weeks, family reunions, road trips.  But extended time with family in close quarters is not always easy, as old family dynamics repeat themselves despite the passage of time.    During the summer, worship will focus on the Bible’s biggest extended family—the family of Abraham and Sarah.   Their family dysfunctions are of, well, biblical proportions.  Raging jealousy, deception and trickery, sibling rivalry, and child endangerment are prominent in these stories.  But there’s also crazy love and unearned blessing (just like in our own families).   

The reunion begins on Sunday, June 29 with the binding of Isaac—Genesis 22:1 – 14.  Other family stories are:

August 17:  Genesis 45:1 - 15

August 24:  Exodus 1:8 - 2:10

August 31:  Worship at Church of the Covenant!!!  Here are the details!!!

Come to the Big 3-church Family Reunion worship and picnic, Sunday, August 31, 10am worship with picnic following--all outdoors, weather permitting. Where? Church of the Covenant, 2666 Military Road, Arlington.  Plenty of parking available.  Food: bring your own meat to grill and a dish to share--salad, side or dessert. Fun: games & play--join in or just watch-- balloons, bubbles, kickball, frisbee, hula hoops, and more!  Moses might show up, too, along with the Burning Bush. Plan B for weather emergency will be to move everything inside, maybe not the burning bush, but everything else.
