Celebrating its 20th year, Gifts of Hope now offers year round gift-giving and donation opportunities on its website


Lutheran Disaster Response


Find out how you can help bring God’s hope, healing and renewal to people whose lives have been disrupted by disasters.


Separation of church and state has made for the strongest and freest religious practice in the whole world. When the state gets involved, someone's freedom will be denied.


CTS is a member of the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. Synod of the ELCA

Welcome

Christ the Servant Lutheran Church is a progressive, sacramental community dedicated to living out the implications of Jesus’ love ethic. Our acronym, CTS, not only refers to our name, but also refers to our three primary tasks: to Care, Teach and Serve. We strive to be a place of generous caring, lively study and committed service to the world. We welcome you to get to know us!
