Welcome to 8th Day Faith Community

Welcome to the Eighth Day Faith Community

An Ecumenical Church

Children's Sermon We are a small, diverse ecumenical church with members from different faith backgrounds and ways of expressing our faith. We hold in common the desire to follow Jesus through peacemaking, work for justice (especially economic justice), and environmental sanity.All are welcome, regardless of faith (or lack of it), religious background, age, gender, sexual orientation, wealth (or lack of it), ethnicity, or any other characteristic that ordinarily separates us from one another. We are open and affirming and value the differences among us. Check us out! We meet at the Potter's House at 1658 Columbia Rd NW in the Adams-Morgan neighborhood of Washington.  Our church services begin at 10:30 AM Sundays. Click here for map.

On the day of the 8th Day Faith Community's return to the Potter's House

We are finally here in this beautiful, renovated space: it is the work of many people's hopes, dreams, yearnings, and connections to the past through a rich history of commitment and rootedness in this neighborhood and city. This also is the work over the past two-plus years of many people who have shown up at visioning and focus groups and circle gatherings and have served as consultants, advisors, mentors, and funders, and that includes the 8th Day Faith Community. And, it is the persistent and faithful work of several young people who got hold of a dream of what the Potter's House could be in the hear-and-now and who held sacred the past 50+ years of the Potter's House and its rich and committed life in the Adams Morgan neighborhood and beyond. This is the place where we have chosen to call our home, and  it is from this place that we choose to minister.
