Every summer, FBC devotes intentional time and energy to building community, relaxing together and getting to know one another -- newcomers and long-timers alike -- in new and fun ways. Two Summer of Fun events are planned for June with more gatherings later in the summer (TBA). If you'd like to organize and host an event, reach out to Faith Formation Team leader Lucy Plovnick ( Some events are free; others require purchase of a ticket payable below; if online payment isn't your thing, just call our office at (202)387-2206 and Zena Aldridge will be happy to assist you).

The Congressional Chorus (including FBCDC's own Philip Hawkins) will perform at 7:30pm, at National City Christian Church (5 Thomas Circle, just blocks from First Baptist). The program, titled “Let Justice Roll: From Montgomery to Selma to Birmingham,” features ground-breaking musical works that shed light on the long and painful history of racial inequality in the United States and celebrate the people who have worked to bring justice, freedom and hope to everyone who calls this nation their home. Deadline to RSVP and pay HERE: Friday, May 17. And, if your schedule allows, join us for dinner before the concert at 5:30pm at a nearby restaurant TBD. Questions? Contact Amanda Tyler at
