We can change the world

We believe the gospel has that kind of power.  By partnering the church together with God's mission, we serve needs and share hope in DC and beyond.  We partner together to serve many other churches, ministries and organizations throughout the city.

Volunteer in the church

Our weekly ministries do not happen because of one person.  It takes an entire team of people! If you are interested in serving in one of the below categories, please contact the leader listed below.

Sunday Lunch Crew meets for lunch in and around the Navy Yard after our third service at 12:30pm on Sunday mornings. This is a great time to connect with other people who attend Waterfront Church!  Check our monthly connection guide for specific locations.

Quarterly Community Events

We participate in community and neighborhood events as a church every quarter.  Check out our Events Page to see the next time we will get together to serve.

We have community groups meeting in and around the Navy Yard area almost every night of the week. To join a group, visit our community groups page here. For more information about our groups, email Ed Downing here.

Local Missions

At least one time per month, Waterfront Church sends out a team of volunteers to be the hands and feet of Christ to our community. If you interested in plugging into one of our monthly local mission projects, email Sarah Janaro for more information.


Below are a few of Waterfront Church’s local missions partnerships.  Our church both leads and partners with others in being the hands and feet of Jesus Christ to our community.
