Falls Church Presbyterian

What to Expect

Join us Sundays for Worship at 9:30 a.m.

During the pandemic, we are alternating between our two worship styles and locations each Sunday.

Informal Worship in Fellowship Hall

A less-formal worship service in our light-filled Fellowship Hall. Worship with coffee and snacks, crayons, hand-held musical instruments (optional), and songs accompanied by piano. Communion is served every Sunday.

Traditional worship in the Sanctuary

The Sacrament of Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month. Child care is available in the nursery on the second floor. Most Sundays feature organ music, traditional hymns, and our Chancel Choir. About once a month, the service includes Honey and Locusts, a multi-instrument and voice group that includes youth and adults, bringing folk, bluegrass, and other non-traditional music to worship. 

In-person Spiritual Growth Opportunities for All Ages are currently on pause for the pandemic.

Typically, Sunday classes take place during the 9:30 a.m. hour, September-May. Other spiritual growth offerings occur throughout the week, including monthly Presbyterian Women’s Circles, Tuesday Centering Prayer, and Saturday Bible Study & Fellowship Group. Many of these groups are on pause or are meeting virtually. You can find more information in our weekly e-gram which can be found on the members page.

Frequently asked questions

How long is a typical worship service?

Our worship services are typically one hour long or less.

Where do I park?

Parking is available on three sides of the building and along E. Fairfax Street. Handicapped parking access is available at the E. Fairfax Street entrance.

How do I enter?

Our building is almost 150 years old and has several additions with multiple entries – which can be confusing! The main entrance to the sanctuary is up the stairs through the double doors off the back parking lot. Worshipers may also enter Fellowship Hall up the stairs through the set of doors off the front parking lot. If you’re visiting the church office, the entrance is just inside the double doors off the back parking lot.

Is there a nursery?

Our nursery is currently not available, but typically, we offer nursery care for infants to age 2 in Room 201 during the 9:30 a.m. spiritual growth hour as well as during the 10:45 a.m. worship service. Parents may drop off and pick up children throughout this time. Our nursery is staffed by paid and background-checked nursery workers who love kids!

What about kids in worship?

Children are always welcome in our services. The first four pews on the right side of the sanctuary are designated for families with young children, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit there!

What about my teenagers?

We offer a variety of opportunities for youth to get connected at FCPC. Youth are invited to join us in our worship services. We also offer Sunday evening programming, September–May. You can read more on our Youth Spiritual Growth page or contact Diane Maloney, Director of Spiritual Growth and Community Engagement. 

Are LGBTQ+ persons welcome?

Absolutely! At FCPC we have had a longstanding commitment to bringing about justice for all people. We believe all people are of sacred worth and value. As members of Covenant Network of Presbyterians, we are “working for the unity of the church, furthering the inclusion of LGBTQ persons, seeking understanding and reconciliation, and joining with others seeking a still more just and inclusive church.” For those seeking a gender-neutral restroom, there is one on the main level in the conference room (across from the sanctuary) and two on the third floor.

What should I wear?

Our Fellowship Hall service welcomes you to “come as you are.” At our Sanctuary worship service dress is traditional, though all are welcome, no matter what you are wearing!
