I feel privileged to share in ministry here in this friendly, international community of faith, with activities for young and old, families and singles, apartment dwellers and area homeowners.

Calvary is open to all persons, and I invite you to share in ministries of meaningful worship, friendly caring, and outreach to the community and the world. We want to help you grow in faith, and welcome your help in our following after Jesus Christ.

I hope you’ll find that God is good, and Jesus Christ is alive in our midst - even in difficult times. We hope you’ll grow with us, and find caring friends here at Calvary.

It's an exciting, challenging time to be alive! Please feel free to call our church (703) 892-5185, to browse our website, or seek help from our pastoral or church staff.        Steve Hassmer, pastor


The Heart of Amazing Good News!


The movie 'Heaven is For Real' is causing folks to wonder about life after death, and believing that Jesus was alive after he died is hard for some . Sometimes it’s due to different reports about that in the Bible. Reading the 4 different main accounts of what happened days after Jesus' death, we see- they’re different! In some, it’s just women who discover Jesus isn’t dead like they thought, in others it includes Peter and John. They also vary in how many angels were there that first Easter, if & how many folks actually saw Jesus, and where Jesus appeared next. But despite differences in the accounts, they agree on several critical points of Jesus’ triumph over death- that give hope to every human life. Read Matthew 28:1-10, and let’s celebrate it Easter Sunday!
