What to Expect

Sundays at Reston Presbyterian

The people of Reston Presbyterian are warm and friendly. Many joining us for the first time remark how welcomed they feel as they cross our threshold. You will know a few names before you even sit down!

Each week our visitors represent a variety of religious backgrounds and spiritual journeys. We are not a formal group; you will see a variety of dress levels, so please come dressed as you prefer.

9:00 Discipleship Hour*

We have great courses offered throughout most of the year designed to promote a deeper faith and better relationships.  We have classes for adults and teens. Read more here to learn about our most current offerings.  In addition, click to learn about our amazing RPC Kids Ministry that meets during the 9:00 hour.  In addition you can  check our calendar to see information about current classes.

10:30 Worship Service*

Our worship service is filled with thoughtful elements such as sermons (click here to hear them), sacraments, music, prayers, testimonies, to confessions and creeds.  These are all crafted to help us focus on the Gospel of Jesus Christ from our Reformed perspective.  We believe the Gospel is for everyone: the young and old, the married, singe, divorced and widowed, to the hurting, the skeptic, to the curious and to those who have been Christians for many years! Please click here to learn about our amazing RPC Kids Ministry “God’s Kids”  that meets during the sermon time of the 10:30 service.

5:00 Worship Service*

The evening worship service is a more intimate time designed for the entire family.  Child care is not provided but we do have nursery rooms and the Gathering Room available.

*Gathering Room: This space is available to use at all our worship services and meetings, this is a quiet and comfortable space with a live feed of the service.

Communion

We celebrate the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of the month at the 10:30 service and the third Sunday each month at the 5:00 pm service.

After Worship

After the service is over, please join us for coffee, tea, cold beverages, and snacks. On the second Sunday of each month after the 10:30 service, we host Community & Cuisine, a potluck-style buffet prepared by our congregation for everyone attending the service. This is a great opportunity to get to know the church family a little better.

Prayer

It is our distinct privilege to pray for you. The Elders welcome the opportunity and Biblical responsibility to pray for healing with any who would seek it according to James 5:14-16. After each worship service, an elder and his wife will be at the front of the sanctuary to pray privately with anyone requesting prayer. You can also request prayer by appointment by emailing the church. Once a month, the Elders have a dedicated meeting to pray for the congregation and the world, holding up the needs of the church including the submitted prayer requests.
