Worship With Us
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come into God’s presence with singing.
– Psalm 100
Liturgy (worship) means “the work of the people.” At Arlington Presbyterian, our liturgies come alive in our work together.
Our songs, prayers, scripture readings, and the sacraments of communion and baptism are all acts of the liturgy we do as equals and beloved ones of God.
Our music comes out of our “purple hymnal” along with inserts in the bulletin. We have percussion instruments in the pews to add spirit and layered participation into our songs.
Know that you don’t need to have perfect pitch to sing the songs. You don’t need to know or have heard the scriptures before in order to have a connection with God’s Word. You don’t need to keep a perfect beat on percussion to accompany the songs. The Spirit is the one that connects and holds us together in the liturgy.
As we share and work together, we are formed into God’s faithful, loving people, following the way of Jesus. Freedom has been found here. Freedom will continue to be found here. Thanks be to God.
Our temporary home is in the Arlington United Methodist Center (AUMC), 716 South Glebe Road, Arlington, VA. We worship at 11:00 a.m. in the Chapel which is on the back side of the AUMC building, with the entrance on 8th Street South. A staffed nursery is available from 10 am through the end of worship. On the fourth Sunday of each month (weather permitting), we worship in our garden, located just two blocks away at Lincoln Street and 9th Street South.
OUR VISION STATEMENT:
Moved by God’s love and through the power of the Holy Spirit, Arlington Presbyterian Church is challenged by the Word of God to welcome all, to nurture spiritual growth, and to serve with compassion. We proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord!
