Welcome to Reformation!
Consecration Sunday Is Coming Reformation Sunday, October 26
Get ready for the annual Reformation Octoberfest, Sunday, October 26. We have one worship service at 11:00 a.m. that Sunday followed by the feast. We’ll also celebrate the congregation’s 145 anniversary and the 80th anniversary of the Sanctuary Building. RSVP here.
Usual Sunday Morning Schedule: 8:30 Worship; 10:00 Sunday School; 11:00 Worship.
8:30 is our intimate worship service, with average attendance of about 30 people in the large sanctuary. Coffee follows in the blue room. Perfect for those who really want to get to know their fellow worshipers!
10:00 Sunday School has classes for all age ranges, as well a confirmation program for 7th and 8th graders. If you don't know where to go, just ask someone!
11:00 is our larger worship service. The choir adds beautiful music to this service! Coffee after this service is served downstairs in the Parish Hall.
Holy Moly! Sunday School Continues Sundays at 10:00 a.m.
Ignite a biblical imagination that lasts a lifetime! Reformation has classes and groups for every age on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. Through humor, crafts, caring adults and videos we share the riches of God's love for us through the stories of the Bible. For more information and to register your child, email Anne Sanyi, youth and family ministry coordinator. Meanwhile here's an introduction video to our curriculum and a sample video we'll share in Sunday School with young children. Confirmation classes are available for middle schoolers and Faith in Action groups are available for High Schoolers. The adult class in September focuses on homelessness and poverty in DC. Come as you are--wherever you are on life's journey.
Proposed Congregation Bylaws
At its last meeting, the Congregation Council recommended the congregation approve a series of updated bylaws to our constitution. The vote to approve the bylaws will be at the Annual Meeting November 23. We must mail constitution and bylaws to every voting member household 30 days before the meeting--unless the members “opt out” of the mailing. Voting members can opt out of the mailing two ways: 1) Printed copies of the bylaws are available in the sanctuary entryway. Just sign the list and we won’t have to mail you a copy. 2) Download the updated bylwas and/or the executive summary. Then fill out the opt-out form here.
