Now while I in no way advocate church hopping, one of the cool things about being at NCC is that we are over the Saturday night services, so Sunday morning, I have no responsibilities, which is a really weird feeling by the way. So I’ve been utilizing my free Sunday mornings by visiting other churches in the DC Metro area when I am not in the middle of ginormous snowstorms that apparently only strike DC on weekends.
As we are in the planning stages of church planting, I want to experience all different types of expressions in the body of Christ to see how different churches and ministries reach people. So far here in D.C., we have been to Grace Covenant Church in D.C. and Grace Covenant Church in Chantilly, VA, two of our Every Nation churches in D.C. We have been to McLean Bible Church, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, pastored by Mark Dever. Today we went to Covenant Life Church, pastored by Josh Harris. I also spent one Friday night at JHOP, which is walking distance from Ebenezers, NCC‘s coffee shop on the Hill. I’ve also spent a little bit of time with The Fellowship, at one of their properties, and they have a very unique ministry model.
Its been very encouraging so far, every church has its own strengths and I have thoroughly enjoyed getting a broader perspective of the Body Of Christ. Its great to see different churches just being who they are and reaching people, I look forward to more Sunday’s church hopping.
Anyone else know of any other churches I need to check out in D.C.?
