Month of November. Trinity Lutheran Church in Fort Washington (located at the corner of Summit Avenue and Spring Avenue) will host several families from the Inter-Faith Housing Alliance shelter program during the month of November.

Join us as we read together the Gospel of John. Time-honored questions and a unique group process called Approaching the Gospels Together guide us into a fresh way of encountering Jesus in the Gospel text. Whether you have never read the Gospel of John or have read it many times, this approach allows the Gospel to meet you where you are on your spiritual journey. We will read the Gospel of John in order from beginning to end, but each session is stand-alone. No prior preparation is required, so you are welcome to come when you can.
For more information, contact Sarah Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I am welcome here in God’s House!” As the opening song of this special service suggests, Family Table celebrates the hospitality and welcome that God intends for all of his children, regardless of age. Especially designed and planned for all, but especially for households with young children (this means grown-ups, too!), the Family Table experience is vibrant yet instructive, playful yet powerful, flexible yet valuing ritual, and downright joyful! Communion is celebrated each week of the year at Family Table, and families gather afterward for fellowship. The liturgy itself begins at 9:15am, and it is held in the New Chapel.
Each Sunday, we endeavor to make our 10am service in the church relevant to families as we include children and youth in worship leadership. Whether it’s the St. Francis Choir or the Choristers singing, a sermon that speaks to the needs of the family, collecting food to be blessed at the altar to share with the poor, or having a youth read Scripture lessons aloud, the focus is on family.
