Welcome

Wherever you are in your journey of faith, we are here for you.

Our prayer is that you will find a spiritual home here—a home where the love and presence of Jesus Christ are experienced as we gather in community to worship God.

Finding Us

National is located at the corner of Nebraska Avenue NW and Van Ness Street, near NBC and American University.

Basics

NPC has a weekly attendance of about 700 and we strive for each person to be known and feel at home here. Since Covid-19, our viewership has grown to about 1,300 per week.

Communion

Communion is served in worship on the first Sunday of every month.

For online worship, you are invited to share in the celebration of communion from your home. Here are the guidelines for preparation and serving of communion.

Accessibility

The Sanctuary, Chapel, and most classrooms are accessible to persons with disabilities. Large print bulletins and hymnals, and devices to assist the hearing impaired are available for use in the Sanctuary.

What do you have for my kids?

We love kids in worship!

Pick up a “Worshiper in Training” bag outside the Sanctuary for fun things to help children engage in the service. If you and your little one need a break, the worship service is live streamed in the Chapel, just down the hall from the Sanctuary. There you can move around but still see the service.
