The Falls Church Episcopal is simultaneously one of the oldest and youngest congregations in the country – a place with colonial era roots and a new church plant’s ethos in a bustling suburb of Washington, DC. We strive to be a beacon of faith, hope, and love to all, and seek to fulfill God’s will on Earth by gathering believers and seekers, providing sanctuary, ministering with the community, being a force for reconciliation, and serving as a source for transformation in ourselves and the world. Christian Formation for all ages that is rooted in scripture, fellowship, and service is a priority in our vision and at the heart of our parish life. Our congregation has tripled in size in the last 5 years, and we believe what God is doing at The Falls Church is a true resurrection story. Rapid growth is both thrilling and challenging, and we are seeking to expand our staff to respond to the needs of our church and our broader community.
