This congregation has provided a Lutheran witness to Arlington since 1940, and we plan to be here serving the Gospel for many years to come. Resurrection's mission and ministry are built on the solid foundation of Word and Sacrament. Worship is at the heart of a Christian's existence, though it is not the sum and substance of that experience. This means that while one is justified by faith in Jesus Christ, true faith is always active in love.
Resurrection Lutheran Church is part of the Metropolitan Washington DC Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Our faith is based in the historic creeds of the church anchored in Holy Scripture, and is summarized in the confessional documents of the Lutheran Church.
Come join us on Sunday mornings and sing a joyful song to the Lord.
Reverend Dr. Scott S. Ickert, Senior Pastor
Reverend Anteneh Gebreselassie, Associate Pastor
Join us on Wednesdays during Lent for our annual Lenten series program of supper, education, and prayer.
Our program begins at 6:00pm in the Parish Hall with a soup supper, followed by a program. This year we will be learning about "Christ In The Arts."
Our evening concludes at 7:30pm with a Taizé-style worship service. In Taizé-style worship the congregation immerses itself in simple yet profound harmonies of repeated simple musical lines and core biblical texts, followed by silence, repeated with no set time or duration.
