Welcome to Woodbridge, Virginia! We want to take this opportunity to introduce you to the Church of Christ at Dale City and to extend an invitation to you and your family to worship with us. We are pleased that you have come to visit our little corner in cyberspace. This site was created with you in mind, so that you may become acquainted with our congregation and with the churches of Christ throughout the world. We also want to inform you of some of the activities of the church that you may wish to take part in. This site is still under development, soif you have any questions or comments let us know. Thank you for coming, and please check back with us again soon.Click on our link for a brief history of the church of Christ at Dale City.
FAMILIES FOR CHRIST is our continuing theme for growing together and developing spiritually. Through Bible Study, fellowship and a variety of activities our lives together will be abundantly blessed as Jesus promised.
We live in a highly transient area and it is very easy for individuals, and families, to get lost in the shuffle of the very busy life around Washington, D.C. This is especially true of continuing to develop our spiritual lives. The family of God can provide a very strong anchor and safe haven for the storms that life in this area can, and does, bring. It makes no difference how long you will be in the area - a few months or years - your fellowship is vital to a good sound wholesome life while here.
How To Find Us

A Little Bit About Us
As many are searching for a church, they are dismayed by the division and confusion in the religious world. There are so many groups with so many names and creeds. The Churches of Christ have no creed but Christ, accept no book but the Bible and wear no name but Christian. We believe that when we follow the Bible only, we will be Christians only.
We realize that walking into a church service for the first time can be very intimidating. It is our hope that this introduction will answer some of your questions so that you will feel more comfortable visiting with us.
When you come to visit, you will find a very friendly group of people that are committed to serving God and each other. We assure you that you will not be singled out or embarrassed. You will be a welcome guest.
Visitors are always welcome at all of our gatherings.
Singing is an important part of our worship. Each member or visitor in attendance is encouraged to sing from the heart. There are no musical instruments or choirs in our assemblies, just singing. This practice can be traced to the church in the New Testament, where the instrument used was the heart.
Our worship is directed to God. Prayer connects us to Him. When we pray in our assemblies, we express adoration to God, thank Him for His blessings and request His continued care over us. At Dale City, we take prayer very seriously. We have an extensive prayer list and our members and friends are encouraged to make their prayer requests known. We believe that God is attentive to and answers our prayers!
THE LORD’S SUPPER
Before His arrest, Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper, a memorial feast using unleavened bread and fruit of the vine (grape juice). The unleavened bread is used to remind us of Jesus’ body and His suffering on our behalf. The fruit of the vine is used to remind us of the blood that Jesus shed when He was hung upon the cross. Realizing that we are human, Jesus gave us this weekly reminder so that we will not forget what He did for us. The Bible teaches us that when we eat the Lord’s Supper, we remember Jesus and proclaim His death until He comes again! (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
In keeping with the scriptural example, we take up a weekly offering or collection. All of our activities are funded by the free-will contribution of our members. We do not expect our visitors to make a donation. Our offerings are only carried out on Sunday. We believe that by freely giving back to God from what He has blessed us with is a way to worship Him and support His work here on earth.
The Bible states that we should devote ourselves to the public reading of scripture. (1 Tim. 4:13) In keeping with this instruction, we have selected Scripture readings during our assemblies. Our members use various Bible versions. Some of the versions that are most commonly used are: The New International Version (NIV), The New American Standard Version (NASV), and the Old and New King James Version (KJV or NKJV).
TEACHING & PREACHING
The reading and teaching of God’s word is designed to instruct and encourage us in finding and following God’s will for our lives. The lessons that are presented bring a mix of history, theology and application for our everyday lives.
SUNDAY SCHOOL/BIBLE STUDY
We have classes for all ages, infant to adult. Our classes are offered at 9:00 AM on Sunday mornings, 7:30 PM Wednesday evenings, as well as other classes during the week. Be sure to check with the church office for more information concerning the classes and training offered by the congregation.
Our ladies have a regular Ladies Class that meets on Tuesday mornings. The ladies take part in a Secret Sisters Program, which is designed to offer encouragement. Our ladies host an occasional ladies' day activity. For more information about these and other ladies activities, contact the church office.
We have a very active outreach to the senior citizens in our community. Bible studies and worship services are conducted at the River Run Apartment complex, and a Bible study is held at the Woodbridge Senior’s Center on Thursday mornings.
We offer free Bible Correspondence courses as well as personal in-home Bible studies. If either of these is of interest to you, please let us know.
As you can see, we have
a number of activities. These activities are designed to offer training,
assistance and encouragement for our daily walk with the Lord.
May God Bless You today and always.

When you are looking for a church, do you usually ask the wrong questions.
Is this church friendly?
Does this church believe the way I believe?
Will this church inspire me, make me feel good?
Is the worship exciting? For some, Is it reverent?
Does this church care about its community?
Is the preaching boring?
What does it cost in tithes, etc.?
Does it have a youth program?
Will this church help me with my problems?
Does this church provide me with the opportunity to be important?
The only question that needs to be asked is:
Does this church care to do what the Lord says to do?
Come and worship with us..We care.
