The reach of the gospel message--and the new life it promises--cannot be localized to specific or individual churches. It was never meant to be. Rather, and in harmony with Christ's two-fold commission (see Matt 28.19-20 and Acts 1.8), the spreading of the gospel and the advancement of God's kingdom begins locally and extends outward--"even to the remotest part of the earth" (Acts 1.8). We are committed not only to this commission but also its approach. Thus, our Missions and Outreach ministry is focused on meeting the needs of those Here (our local communities), Near (our country), and Far (our world).

  • The Lamb's Center: a volunteer-based organization whose mission is to serve the poor and homeless of Fairfax County, to transform lives, and to share God's love in tangible ways. (Please visit their website to find more details about what they do, events they host, and how you can become involved).
  • Committee for Helping Others: a volunteer-based organization whose mission is to help the needy in Vienna, Oakton, Dunn Loring, and Merrifield with basic and emergency needs. (Please visit their website to find more details about what they do, events they host, and how you can become involved).
