Masks are currently optional for in-person worship and will be available if desired.
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.
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, transgender, 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.
Support for Rosenwald Schools
November 1, 2020 Sermon
On Sunday, June 12, as part of our Salon Sunday program to meet with local people of interest, Christ the Servant hosted Dr. Dorothy Canter. Dr. Canter gave a presentation about Julius Rosenwald and the campaign to create the Rosenwald Schools National Historic Park. Julius Rosenwald was an executive with Sears & Roebuck and became a visionary philanthropist. He partnered with African-American communities across the South to build schoolhouses for children who had little access to the public education to which they were entitled. The park will include a Visitors Center in Chicago and a number of restored schoolhouses in several states. After the presentation, CTS was honored to provide Dr. Canter with a letter of support for this project. If you wish to learn more, visit the website.
