We thank you for visiting with us on our Web site. We hope the information you are looking for is here and perhaps you may want to come to our Worship Service at 10:00 am one of these coming Sundays. You are always invited and welcome. Our hope is that you will “Come Journey with Us” in our pilgrimage on earth.
We are one of the few African American Lutheran Congregations in the metro Washington DC suburban area. We are Afro-centric in our cultural perspective and Christian in our worldview. Our congregation is also diverse – Caribbean, African, White, Black, Latino. We provide African language (Akan) skills and travel to Africa annually.
In addition to all the regular programming that Churches provide, we also offer African Drum and Dance called Mantsim-Adze in Akan, where you may learn either to play African drum and/or dance. Rehearsals every Saturday at 12:00 noon. For parents with teenagers, we offer Rites of Passages programs, intended to assist young people to spiritually grow their minds alongside their physical bodies. Our worship style has two formats (Afro-centric on 2nd and 4th Sundays; Liturgical on 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month). If you are curious as to how that would be possible, we invite you to visit us. Come share with us your enthusiasm, your spirit, and your love for Jesus Christ.
