Some churches teach “Left Behind”…
We teach “Included In.”

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



At Christ the Servant, we respect the beautiful traditions of the Church. At a time when many churches are abandoning the traditional rituals, we at Christ the Servant have sought to preserve many of them and to fill them with new life for modern people.

On Sunday mornings, we share a common worship service of Holy Communion at 9:30 AM. At these services, we offer diversity in worship styles ranging from traditional to contemporary to Solemn High Mass (on Christmas Eve and Easter).

Evening Prayer (Mon-Fri). We are unique in the Washington Metropolitan Synod in that we practice lay-led Daily Prayer in our sanctuary whenever a regular service is not scheduled. See the Calendar for times.

During Advent and Lent (Wed), we gather on Wednesday evenings for a simple supper of soup and bread at 6:30 PM, followed by a service of sung vespers with a sermon by the pastor at 7:30 PM.

Everyone is invited to and welcomed around Christ’s table to receive the bread and wine in which, we believe, Christ is present for us. If you choose not to commune, you are invited to join us to receive a blessing; please cross your arms over your chest to indicate this. If you are interested in learning more about Holy Communion or CTS, please speak to Pastor Kari Parsons.

We enjoy and welcome children at worship. They are important to the life of our church family and are always welcome to stay with you during worship. There is a children’s time during the service when they may come to the front of the church and join other children for a special lesson from our pastor.

An optional nursery is available during both morning services if you prefer.
