• COVID-19 – Rental Assistance

    Need help or know someone who needs help with rent payments? Renters and landlords may qualify for rental assistance through the federal government’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program. Renters who have experienced financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, meet certain income requirements, and are behind on their rent, may be eligible. The rental assistance program is administered by state governments. Eligible renters can receive help with unpaid rent and utilities dating back to March or April 2020, depending on the state’s program. Learn more about the programs for the DMV at the following websites:

    Dear Church Family:

    It is a good thing that the Church is not a building. The Bible tells us how important it is to dwell together in unity (Psalm 133:1), and we all look forward to returning to church again as soon as we are able to do so safely. But while we have not been able to gather in-person, God has enabled and equipped us to gather together as a virtual Church in love and service for one another and our community. We are all looking forward to the day when we once again gather in person as a large group, but that time is not now. Our church will remain in Phase One of the District of Columbia’s reopening plan for now.  (more…)
