Caring Ministries

Stephen Ministry: As a Stephen Ministry congregation, we are part of a nationwide program that provides training, resources, and ongoing support to organize and equip lay caregivers in the congregation. These “Stephen Ministers” provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered support and care to people who are experiencing grief, divorce, cancer, job loss, loneliness, disability, relocation, and other life difficulties.

Martha Ministry: We provide practical assistance and support within our community. Martha Ministry members serve a few hours a month by providing meals, sending cards or giving rides – small things that sometimes make all the difference.

Elders Ministry: We call our ministry to seniors “Elder” ministry in recognition of the wisdom they bring to our community. We gather as a group a couple of times a year and stay in touch by phone, mail and visits.

Talk to a Pastor: Pastor Karen Brau, Senior Pastor can be reached at, 202-667-1377. Pastor Karen is available to meet with you for prayer or conversation about faith, life challenges, or other topics you want or need to talk about. She is also available for weddings and funeral consultations.
