Racially and socioeconomically diverse church in the center of Chinatown. Worship is mainly in English blended with elements of the Spanish language. Fairly large Burmese congregation meets separately. Involved with immigration reform, sanctuary church movements, overseas missions, interfaith relations, homeless ministry, DC Pride, and local community issues such as affordable housing and sanctuary city policies. Established over 150 years ago by abolitionists hosting runaway slaves.
Founded by the late Nancy Butler, who was one of the founders of the affirming evangelical movement. Now a little church with strong leadership (preaching team and pastoral team) and lots of children. Lots of young queer families.
Multi-ethnic congregation. Operates an LGBTQ+ affirming ministry called Maranatha. Fully LGBTQ+ affirming and welcoming.
