The Community Building Ministry offers ways for people to connect and build meaningful relationships so that we may discover and mirror God’s constant and unconditional love in our midst.

Fellowship Hour

We like to eat together! So, every Sunday morning we gather in Fellowship Hall following the 10:45 a.m. worship service for coffee, tea, juice, donuts, and frequently a delectable array of other goodies. It’s a favorite time to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.

Gathering Groups

Gathering Groups are small groups of 6-12 people who meet weekly for about 40 minutes in-person or on zoom. These gatherings offer an opportunity to share stories with a consistent group so we can be in community throughout the week.   Topics have ranged from discussions of videos by theologian Diana Butler Bass to chapter-by-chapter discussions of White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism, by Robin DiAngelo. 

College Age Ministry

Kids away at school or working remote from family and loved one, appreciate getting greetings and, of course, goodies from folks back home. FCPC’s College Age Ministry focuses on connecting our college aged kids with their church family. 

If you would like to “Adopt a College Age Youth,” if you’re looking for a place to share your love with someone who will treasure it, this is the ministry for you.  We can pair you up and get you the addresses and any other information you need

Escape Weekend

Falls Church Presbyterian thrives on multi-generational fellowship. In November 2019, 109 of us – youth, adult, long-time members, newcomers, old friends, new friends – gathered at Shrine Mont in Orkney Springs, VA for our first Escape Weekend of rest, reflection and recreation and a break from technology, stress, expectations and obligations.

Sunday Greeters

If you have the ability to smile, you can be a greeter.  If your kids can say “Good Morning,” they can be greeters. Greeters exist for the sole purpose of making all – members, visitors, guests, young, old, regulars, irregulars – feel the welcome we have for them at Falls Church Presbyterian. It’s the easiest job you’ll ever have. Share the love. Be a greeter.
