WELCOME TO THE 8TH DAY

FAITH COMMUNITY

An Ecumenical Church

How Do We Sing the Lord's Song in a Strange Land?

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 Festival Center at 1640 Columbia Rd NW in the Adams-Morgan neighborhood of Washington.  Our church services begin at 10:00 AM Sundays.
