To provide religious, social, and educational services to enable the Muslim community to fulfill its responsibilities and contribute to the betterment of society by embodying and exemplifying leadership and excellence and fostering peace.
The Church of Christ and the congregation
The Church of Christ is a non-denominational Christian fellowship. For most people, “non-denominational” means “no ties to any overseeing body – an independent local congregation.” That definition suits us well, but it doesn’t mean we are just one congregation. There are over 13,000 congregations, all calling themselves the Church of Christ, throughout the United States. There are an additional 15,000 congregations in 73 foreign countries. Each congregation governs itself independently from all the others and any overseeing board. We have no official “headquarters.” No governing body mandates or dictates doctrine. And yet, we are very united in our attitude toward the Bible, in the way our congregations are governed, in our concept of the Christian life, and in the way we believe people become Christians.
Northern Virginia Hebrew Congregation
“NVHC is our spiritual home, where we connect through community to Judaism that matters.”
it is a Reform Jewish community of passionate people who embrace innovation, engagement, and exploration. We welcome everyone, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual identity, whether single or in a relationship, Jewish or non-Jewish. We celebrate our diversity and are open to all who wish to join us in us in our community of Jewish spiritual, educational, and cultural life. A tabernacle. A sanctuary where we laugh, cry, study, pray, question, provide spiritual support, and hold each other with loving kindness. An open door for the seeker or the explorer, the lonely or the hungry. A safe place where varied individuals, all created in the image of God, discover different ways to encounter meaning and something greater than ourselves.
