Peoples Congregational United Church of Christ is a progressive Christian community located in the Petworth neighborhood. At 115 years old, Peoples is a pillar of Washington's religious community. The diversity of members' spiritual and cultural origins sustains a robust fellowship and mission life at Peoples. The resulting exposure to different cultures and religious backgrounds creates a spirit of acceptance and requires openness to the knowledge, ideas and perspectives embodied in members' experiences.
The community believes that the test of its faith is the action it takes and therefore seek to serve humanity through diversity in worship services, religious programming, and community outreach efforts.
