Commonwealth is a new faith community in the Fairfax, VA area. We are reimagining how church has been done and building a new model for church in partnership with our neighbors.
We seek a new way of seeing the faith journey, whether it’s the beginning, middle or end of that journey.
Hello! Thanks for checking our website out. We are excited to announce the followings:
1) Sunday Online Gatherings
We meet every Sunday (11 am EST) through Zoom for meaningful connections and conversations. This virtual gathering involves sharing reflections from each Sunday's scripture passage and message, sharing prayers for one another, and celebrating Holy Communion virtually. If you are interested, make sure to subscribe to our Sunday Supplements, our weekly email with worship resources.
2) Monthly Outdoor Gatherings
We strive to meet once a month for outdoor worships and/or fellowships. This is a space for those who are mindful of BOTH the needs to gather in-person AND the ongoing threat of the virus. We want to make this a safe space especially for the yet-unvaccinated children under 12yo. If you are interested in learning more about our outdoor gatherings, please contact Pastor Minoo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3) Creating Church Pods
We are interested in relaunching our small group ministry. But we want to do so using the Pandemic Pods model, where a group of vaccinated people "bubble" together in small, closed groups to provide and share spiritual nourishments. If this is something you are interested, please contact Pastor Minoo at email@example.com.
