This congregation has provided a Lutheran witness to Arlington since 1940, and we plan to be here serving the Gospel for many years to come. Resurrection's mission and ministry are built on the solid foundation of Word and Sacrament. Worship is at the heart of a Christian's existence, though it is not the sum and substance of that experience. This means that while one is justified by faith in Jesus Christ, true faith is always active in love.
Resurrection Lutheran Church is part of the Metropolitan Washington DC Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Our faith is based in the historic creeds of the church anchored in Holy Scripture, and is summarized in the confessional documents of the Lutheran Church.
Come join us on Sunday mornings and sing a joyful song to the Lord.
Reverend Dr. Scott S. Ickert, Senior Pastor

Advent Lessons & Carols
Advent Taizé Evening Prayer
Dinner, Prayer, Neighborhood Caroling
This brief service that takes place at 7:30pm on Wednesdays in Advent features a simple and reflective style of prayer supported by chants and silences for meditation and contemplation.
The Taizé Community, founded in 1940, is an ecumenical monastic order in Taizé, France that has become a pilgrimage site that attracts thousands of mostly young people yearly to worship and pray. The community has developed a distinctive style of prayer that is simple and reflective. Its music emphasizes simple phrases, usually lines from the Psalms or other selections of Scripture, repeated and sometimes sung in canon.
On Wednesday, December 21st, we will have a light dinner at 6:30pm, followed by evening prayer in the Chapel at 7:00pm, and concluding with caroling in the neighborhood.
