The Church in the Shopping Center

Sundays at 10am
Sunday School for all ages at 9am

We are located in the Hunters Woods Plaza, behind Jersey Mike's and to the right of the Reston Community Center.  You can park in the large main lot in front of Safeway and walk back to the church on the pathway between Jersey Mike's and Pista House.  There are also several handicap spots available near Jersey Mike's.

  • You will be greeted warmly.
  • Children are welcome at Christ the Servant!  We love having kids in worship or in our child care - whatever works best for you and your family.  Pastor Carl gives a children's sermon every Sunday.
  • Choose any seat you like (let our greeters know if you need assistance, we are happy to help).
  • Our worship service follows the liturgy printed in worship folders handed out as you enter the sanctuary.
  • Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday.  All of God's faithful are welcome at our table.
  • Our worship service usually lasts an hour.
  • It would be fantastic if you could stick around for a few minutes after the service so we can get to know you, but that's up to you.
  • Please sign our guest register in the narthex or online here. We would love to tell you more about our church and ministries, but will leave you alone if you prefer. 

Whether you arrive on foot, on wheels, with some assistance, or in the company of a service animal, there will be someone to greet you and all who accompany you with a helping hand.

Whether you are living year to year, day to day, or paycheck to paycheck, the coffee will be hot.

Whether you are single, married, divorced, committed, gay, lesbian, straight, transgendered, or bisexual, the sanctuary doors will be open.

Whether you come dressed in a kaftan, sari, sweater, kilt, chädor, jeans, kimono, or suit and tie, there will be a seat waiting for you.

Whether English is your first or eighth language, you have spoken it from your first word or are still learning, the music and liturgy will speak to you.

Whether you are just traveling through, have recently joined us, or helped establish our church decades ago, there will be friends waiting here for you.

Whether your burdens are heavy or light, you are imprisoned or free, have sinned once or many times, the grace of God will be with you at the communion table through bread and wine or a blessing.

 

Whether you find joy in crayons, music, fellowship, pancake suppers, or the gospel, you will find a celebration here.

 

Whether your talents include cooking, cleaning, reading, woodworking, driving, shopping, teaching, counseling, organizing, translating, or singing, there will be an opportunity to serve others.

 

Whether you are not sure about church, have just been baptized, or grew up reciting the Lord's Prayer and the creeds, there will be a lesson to challenge your thinking.

Whether you find yourself on this list or not, you are welcome here to celebrate, think, and serve.
