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.

The National Rebuilding Together Project Day is scheduled for Saturday, April 26th, 2014. Volunteers from Resurrection will once again team with a group from St. Ann's Catholic Church to work on a house in South Arlington. This work is being done under the auspices of the Rebuilding Together Arlington/Fairfax/Falls Church organization. Rebuilding Together -AFF is a 501 (C) (3) nonprofit organization that provides low-income homeowners and nonprofit organizations with critically needed repairs and modifications to create safe and healthy homes. Through the support of corporate sponsors, faith communities, local businesses, and the hands-on work of volunteers, Rebuilding Together-AFF repairs and renovates more than 60 homes each year. Through the efforts of the volunteers Rebuilding Together-AFF produces real results for real families with real needs, such as:
▪ Making houses accessible to give seniors and the disabled the independence to stay in their homes;
▪ Correcting safety risks to reduce injuries and make homes healthy places to live;
▪ Improving energy efficiency to reduce waste, improve comfort and cut utility bills.
The parsonage renovation committee will be holding four forums on the proposed renovation of the parsonage. All are invited to attend at least one of the forums.
- Sunday April 13th, 9:30am and 12:30pm at Room 13
- Sunday May 4th, 9:30am and 12:30pm at Room 13
There will also be an opportunity to tour the parsonage during each of the forums
