What To Expect:
During the program year, we have two services every Sunday with Coffee Hour, Adult Forum, and Sunday School running in between the services. In the summer (mid June to the first Sunday after Labor Day) we have a combined 10:00 am service in the Historic Church with Coffee Hour following in the Fellowship Hall. Nursery Care is provided for all services.
You can expect to be welcomed by a friendly greeter who may share a red “Welcome” packet with you, providing more information about The Falls Church and also a welcome card should you like us to get to know you better and stay in touch. Friendly ushers will pass out the program leaflet and announcements for the day and are happy to answer any questions you may have. Our printed program leaflets provide detailed information about what’s going on with the service so you can follow right along, even if you are unfamiliar with Episcopalian liturgy.
Our 9:00 service is held in the Main Sanctuary and music is led by Gideon’s Trumpet, an informal choir of adult volunteers . Many of our young families choose to attend this service and we have a large number of children that attend our Cherub and Children’s Chapel during worship. During the sign of the peace the children return to their families, having just attended an age-appropriate small group lesson about the day’s readings. Coffee Hour, Adult Forum, and Sunday School run concurrently after the 9:00 am service. The Falls Churchlings, our elementary aged singers, perform every 6 weeks during this service, as do our Chapel Singers. This is a young and lively service and all are welcome!
Our 11:15 service is held in the Historic Church and music is led by the Historic Church Choir, an auditioned adult ensemble. The architecture of the Historic Church lends this service a more traditional feel than the 9:00 am. Cherub and Children’s Chapel also run during this service with Coffee Hour following in the Fellowship Hall.
