COVID-19 Updates:

These are unprecedented and challenging times, and we are here for you. COVID-19 is another reminder that we live in a fallen world filled with suffering and pain. Yet God gives us hope in a hopeless situation and peace in a peaceless world. God sent Himself in the flesh of Jesus Christ, who died on the cross to pay for our sins and rose from death in victory. When we trust in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we no longer live in fear because we have eternal life. We pray that you will put your trust and faith in Jesus. Times like these remind us life is fragile and death is inevitable. Let us become a body that shares the Good News that death is defeated and eternal life with Jesus is ours.

As we trust Jesus and stay up to date on new scientific findings and safety procedures, we are working hard to run a safe in-person facility and a smooth online worship. Our services and operations are being run in accordance with the Hyatt Centric Arlington guidelines, CDC guidelines, updates from the Virginia Department of Health and Governor Northam, and Korean Central Presbyterian Church’s (KCPC) Main Campus policies for the safety and protection of our entire congregation. We are strictly adhering to Virginia’s religious services requirements.

Online streaming is available via YouTube every Sunday at 10:00 a.m., especially for those who are in high-risk or vulnerable categories (or live with someone who is). Until further notice, there will be no children’s or youth ministry offered in-person.
