Architecture and Symbolism

 

Perhaps you've walked by the exterior of Reformation and noticed that, while beautiful, it doesn't look like many modern churches. The church is a unique combination of architectural ideas. Prominent on the one hand are those of early twentieth-century Washington, and on the other, those of the Christian tradition in parish churches that dates to medieval times. The sensitive embodiment in this church of the strongest elements of Christian architecture of the past gives it a richness that is ever new.

 

If you take a look around when you come to visit, you'll notice countless Christian symbols inside the church walls (including some beautiful stained glass). Ask an usher for a pamphlet that explains more about these symbols and why they were chosen.

 

Music and Art

Making a Joyful Noise!

Worship at Reformation is always filled with beautiful music, led by a cantor at the early service and the choir at later service (not to mention the congregation!) We are blessed with a very talented music director who plays the organ in worship and leads the choir. The choir is always welcoming new singers!
