Words of Welcome

Welcome to Fort Washington Collegiate Church; a place of diversity, hospitality and grace. We open our doors to everyone! We welcome all people, regardless of race, culture, sexual orientation, or social or economic status. As a church family we celebrate our diversity and our connection to God, and we seek to follow Christ's example and exemplify the love of Christ. Therefore, as a faith community, we value grace over judgment. Though we represent many cultures and points of view, our diversity does not drive us apart, but gives us the opportunity to be enriched by the gifts and leadership of all. Together, by word and deed, we proclaim the good news that there is new life in Christ. If you've been wondering about whether to get involved in the faith journey, we encourage you to check us out. You may be surprised that church is a lot more welcoming, fun, rewarding and life transforming than you ever thought it could be.

I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
