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.

The Adult Forums on Sundays during Lent (beginning February 18th) will be dedicated to some careful study of parts of our worship resource, the ELW. All members are urged to consider attending, in hopes that your participation in worship will be enhanced by knowledge and conversation. Bring your coffee to Room 13! Forums begin at 9:45am.
Our Lenten Supper and Program series will begin on Wednesday, February 21st, at 6:00pm in the Parish Hall with a light supper, followed by a program. This year, our theme is "Helping Hands Agencies." A Lenten Evening Prayer Service will follow the supper and program at 7:30pm in the Chapel. Lent is especially a time to reflect upon our baptism, and so at each service we will be hearing stories from the Old and New Testaments in which people are given life from God through water.
