Inspired by the centuries old Anglican tradition, we stand at the intersection of the earliest Christian beliefs and the rapidly changing contemporary world. We energetically engage with our neighbors in Fairfax County and the world. We are an open and affirming congregation and we welcome people of every background to worship God and serve the world in his name.
We intend for our community to be one of generous hospitality, transformative mission, rigorous Christian education, and robust faith and worship. We are members of the Episcopal Church which means our community is part of a larger regional church body, and a national governing body. Every member has a voice in church matters. Whether a cradle Episcopalian or a newcomer to faith, please come and join us.
Our Mission and Vision: The Church of the Good Shepherd is a Church that changes lives – both the lives of others and our own. It is a Christ-centered Church, empowered by sustaining fellowship, in humble service to our neighbors in need.
