Army Ten Miler, The Wharf, and Worship

Coming in the Fall of 2018, our new sanctuary

This Sunday morning, October 8th, is the Army Ten Miler race.  Click here for a map so you can prepare your travel plans into the District.

This coming week, The Wharf has its formal opening and there will be multiple activities and opportunities to see and experience the new SW.  On Sunday October 15th at 4 pm Pastor Bledsoe will participate in a blessing of the Wharf along with other SW clergy.  Our own Lauren White will begin the service as she sings Sam Cooke’s A Change Is Gonna’ Come.   Join us on the District Pier.

The center of our week is worship.  Please join us at 10 am each Sunday at Jefferson Middle School Academy in the school auditorium.  Pastor Bledsoe will be addressing our nation’s gun violence with reference to the assasination of President James Garfield.

Army Ten Miler Interferes with Some Streets Sunday

October 9th

smack-self-in-the-headOnce again, a Sunday in DC is made more difficult to navigate because of a marathon.  Here is a link to the map for the Army Ten Miler.  Streets around Jefferson Middle School (where we worship) are not closed but be sure to check the map against your route.  For those coming across the 14th St. Bridge, only the HOV lanes are effected; you can come across, take the Southwest Freeway and Maine Ave. exit.   Be mindful that the race on the map is painted yellow.
