We glorify God by making disciples and multiplying churches in Greater Washington, D.C. Much of our disciple-making in the D.C. area occurs through our members’ personal witness in their offices, schools, and neighborhoods. But we also unite together in structured outreach to make disciples and multiply churches in our communities.
Assist Pregnancy Center’s mission to promote life through Christ to those vulnerable to abortion. Assist Pregnancy Center clients and their partners are offered free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and counseling, they are taught the truth about abortion, and they are provided with real help and hope for their future. The ultimate hope is that these women and men can come to know the love of Christ and the hope found in Him through the work of Assist. MBC Arlington supports APC by preparing quarterly newsletter mailings, participating in the annual Walk Run Ride for Life, attending the annual fundraising banquet, and adopting baby showers. Providing this support allows them to devote more time and resources to caring directly for clients.

If you are in need, you’re welcome to join us at any of the events below, where we will be giving out boxes of food on a first-come, first-served basis. Many of our sites also feel like community festivals, with games and other activities. So whether you need food or not, feel free to come visit us!
