Welcome

We are a lay-led Christian ecumenical fellowship with members from many denominational backgrounds. We are affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America in the Metropolitan Washington, D.C., Synod.  

We affirm that Jesus is Lord, that the Bible urges us to work for peace and justice, and that a weekly Eucharistic service is central to our common life. As a community rooted in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of Washington, D.C., we are committed to a vision of our neighborhood and city as places where all people have a voice in shaping a civic life together.

The Community welcomes people familiar with the Church and Christian tradition, those seeking understanding about faith in general or the way we approach life together, and everything in between. We affirm that the scriptural metaphor of the church as the body of Christ demands that Christian communities be inclusive of all people and that no one be denied participation or leadership on the basis of race, class, sexual orientation, or gender.
