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.


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


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!

Advent Presence at CTS

On December 3, 10, and 17, we will gather in candlelight for sung evening prayer and the space to ponder God’s presence with and in us.

We gather for a soup supper and fellowship at 6:30 pm. Evening Prayer will begin at 7:30 pm.

We invite you to join us for a time of quiet contemplation, song, and prayer that helps us to do what Advent is really supposed to do – prepare us for Christ’s coming into the world to bring salvation, grace, peace, and hope.

Everyone is welcome!
