“Welcoming Others, Growing in Grace, Sharing Christ’s Love”
Our Mission Statement:
Community Lutheran Church exists to let other people know they matter to God, as we let them know they matter to us. We share in Christ’s love for the world through our worship and learning, and seek to reach out in His name with witness and service to all people. We believe the Holy Spirit calls us to be an inviting, caring community.
Community Lutheran’s Core Values:
We Welcome Everyone Who Walks through our Doors and Call Each Other by Name.
We Celebrate the Lord’s Supper. All are Welcome.
We Read the Bible, Learn the Stories of our Faith and Teach them to our Children.
We Embrace Generosity and Give our Time, Talent and Money to build up the Church and Serve Others.
We Share the Good News, Serve God in our Daily Work and Build Community in God’s Name.
We are a Congregation of the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The ELCA includes the District of Columbia and the Maryland and the Virginia suburbs, from upper Montgomery County south to the Quantico Marine Barracks, and from the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay out to the foothills of the Blue Ridge. There are about 35,000 of us in 80 congregations.
The Peace of the Lord be with you!
