Frequently Asked Questions


Newcomers or visitors to our congregation may have questions before visiting! We hope we're able to answer some FAQs here, but if there is something more you'd like to know, please just let us know by emailing a member of our staff!

Are you open for in-person worship?

Yes, we returned in person on June 13 while maintaining our virtual worship presence. More information, links to log-in, and a bulletin can be found under the worship tab. We give God thanks for knitting us together and connecting us in new and different ways.

May I attend as a visitor or newcomer?

YES, all are welcome here! We invite all visitors and guests, those searching for a church home, those with questions, and all levels of beliefs. We have multi-faith families, life-long members, and even non-Lutheran members! Anyone can attend and participate at whatever level they're comfortable with.

Are you a 'gay-friendly' church?

Absolutely! We gladly welcome LGBTQ+ individuals and families to worship and in the life and leadership of the congregation. Since 1987, Reformation has been part of ReconcilingWorks, a national Lutheran LGBTQ+ ministry.

May I take communion? 

As Jesus was intentional in his welcome to the table, so are we! All people of any age are welcome to share in the Lord's Supper. It truly is the meal of God for the people of God! 

Are children welcome in worship?

Yes! Children are always welcome in worship. They bring life, energy, and smiles to our services. Sometimes caregivers with children need other options. The Blue Room at the rear left of the sanctuary is a place caregivers can go. Books and busy bags for young children are available throughout worship in the entryway, too!

Where can I park?

Our address is 212 East Capitol St. NE, Washington, DC, 20003. Street parking is available mornings and evenings on East Capitol St. or, after 6 p.m., in the Supreme Court lot on A Street NE, between 2nd and 3rd streets.
