Welcome to Community of Faith UMC
We realize that life doesn’t always run on a perfect schedule, so we don’t expect you to either. Whenever you arrive, we’ll have a seat waiting for you because no matter where you are coming from, you'll find a place to belong at Community of Faith.
We worship weekly on Sundays with two services at 8:30 and 10:30 AM. The 10:30 AM Worship Service is Live-Streamed over Facebook Live using the church's Facebook page. Each Sunday, a worship guide is posted to this website along with links to the church Facebook site. All our livestreamed services along with Tuesday's Vespers, Children's Stories, and the monthly Contemplative Service are archived at our Vimeo site which can be found by clicking here.
At 8:30 AM, you will experience:
55-minutes of worship in a relaxed, informal setting where Holy Communion is celebrated weekly. With a focus on contemporary music led by a variety of musicians and vocalists, the 8:30 AM service provides a place for prayer, praise, a relevant message, and community.
At 10:30 AM, you will experience:
A more traditional time of worship filled with excellent choral and sacred music, a relevant message, liturgy and prayer. This spirit-filled hour provides an enriching way to refresh your soul as you connect with others. Children are encouraged to begin worship with their families and participate in the time for children before heading to Sunday School. On first Sundays, families remain together throughout the service, and communion is celebrated monthly on the first Sunday.
Our contemplative worship service in the Celtic tradition is rich with prayer, silence, scripture, Holy Communion, and music. It is the antidote to our often-hectic schedules and frenzied pace of life and reflects the beauty, traditions, and simplicity of this ancient Christian community. The Contemplative Service meets monthly during the school year (Sept - June) on third Sundays, 6:45 - 7:30 pm.
Provision Kitchen (a mission of Provision Church) provides a meal before worship at 6:00 pm. The cost is $7.50 per person, and vegetarian and gluten-free options are available. Provision Kitchen is a culinary entrepreneurship training program for individuals experiencing generational poverty in Northern Virginia.
We are blessed to share partnership for this service with our neighbors at Epiphany Episcopal Church. Here are the dates and locations for this school year:
