Several new congregations are growing in the Metro D.C. Synod — growing in numbers, in faith, in their worship life, in stewardship and in discipleship.

GLOBAL PEACE LUTHERAN CHURCH
While the synod does not geologically extend to Frederick, Md., this synodically authorized worshiping community (SAWC) is jointly supported by the Metro D.C. Synod and Delaware-Maryland Synod. The congregation aims to create a welcoming place for worship and communion for people of diverse background and cultures, reaching out to increasing numbers of Asian Indians gathering along the I-270 corridor.

RIVER OF GRACE LUTHERAN CHURCH
This congregation under development (CUD) is in the midst of lots of activity in the Manassas area, meeting its neighbors with new energy and opportunities. “As a river flows with energy and leads to new places and discoveries, we find that our life with God is the same way.”
