upcoming service and engagement opportunities

We are taking shelter in place seriously to support the health and safety of our community, so we are currently serving our neighbors in the following ways:

  • Financial needs in our community

    These are local organizations we partner with who can use your financial support during these trying times: AFAC, Arlington Thrive, Hogar Immigrant Services (offered by Catholic Charities), Arlington Free Clinic, and Bridges to Independence

  • Friendly Callers with Culpepper Gardens

  • Hunger in our community

    The growing season has begun in our Plot Against Hunger.  All produce is donated to AFAC for distribution to our neighbors who have difficulty accessing fresh vegetables. If you would like to help garden: E-mail to sign up
  • LGBTQIA+ rights and inclusion

    We continue to support More Light Presbyterians and Impacto.


    VOICE is committed to bringing people together across religious, racial, ethnic, economic and political party affiliations to build a stronger Northern Virginia.

Contact Blair Moorhead if you’d like to get involved or if you have ideas about new projects CPC should pursue.

Justice and Peacekeeping

Our commitment to be disciples of Jesus calls us to, in the words of the prophet Micah, “do justice,” and, in Jesus’ words, be peacemakers. We are called to witness in the church and in the public square. Clarendon has been a prophetic voice in the church for many years seeking the full participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people of faith in the life, ministry and witness of the  Presbyterian Church.

We have taken that same commitment into the public square working for marriage equality and supporting the work of People of Faith for Equality Virginia. We have also supported the work of Christian Peace Witness for Iraq in public witness for peace.

Our commitments have also led us to work and witness for at-risk children and youth, for the empowerment of women, and in support of local affordable housing initiatives among other social justice concerns.
