Our Vision

"Bringing people together for worship, social action, and spiritual growth.  We celebrate God's presence in everyday life and inclusive love for all humanity."

Welcome to the Fifteenth Street Presbyterian Church on the corner of 15th and R Streets in the vibrant P and U Streets corridors in Northwest Washington, DC.
Our neighborhood is growing and changing and our mission as a progressive, caring community is changing, too. Wherever you are on your life's journey, you will find a friendly face, opportunity for spiritual growth and community involvement, and folks who care and want to connect with others.

Islam, Judaism, and Christianity remind us that civilizations survive

  • not by strength but by how they respond to the weak;
  • not by wealth but by the care they show for the poor;
  • not by power but by their concern for the powerless.

    The ironic yet utterly human lesson of history is that
    what renders a culture invulnerable is the compassion it shows to the vulnerable.

    The ultimate value we should be concerned to maximize is human dignity—the dignity of all human beings, equally, as children of the creative, redeeming God.

"The Crying Christ" (John 11)
Sermon April 2, 2017 

I believe what Frederick Buechner has said about tears is true: "Whenever you find tears in your eyes, especially unexpected tears, it is well to pay the closest attention. They are not only telling you something about the secret of who you are but, more often than not, God is speaking to you through them of the mystery of where you have come from and is summoning you to where, if your soul is to be saved, you should go to next."
