Below is the hotel & meeting room schedule for the upcoming months when we are not at DoubleTree Hotel. You can also check the right hand corner of our website under Sunday Time & Location for a quick glance of the current week’s meeting room and kids’ room locations.

The Key Bridge Marriott is located at 1401 Lee Highway in Arlington. Our main meeting room is in the Georgetown Room and the children’s classrooms will be located on the 3rd floor. There is complimentary parking available in their garage. The metro is located 0.3 miles away and is walking distance to the hotel.
Kids & Nursery
We will register children (nursery-5th grade) for their classes near the Welcome table by the main meeting room prior to service. If you come after 11:50am or after the adult service praise time, please bring your children straight to their classroom and we will register them there. We value the safety of all our children so if you are a visitor or newcomer, you will be given a colored identification wristband that will correlate with the number given to your child(ren). You will need to show this wristband in order to pick-up your child from his/her classroom. If your child has any allergies, we ask that s(he) wear a yellow wristband. All of our snacks are peanut-free.
The classes are down the presidential hallway near the main meeting room (usually Washington Ballroom). Meeting rooms are subject to change so please check above.
Please visit our Kids & Nursery page for more information about our Children’s Sunday School program.
Inclement Weather Announcements
If we need to cancel Sunday morning at one or both of the services (we will, for the most part, follow Arlington school closings), we will notify attendees of updates through twitter, our facebook page, our weekly mailchimp email newsletter, as well as post it onto our website. We will try to post the announcement by 8:00am (as applicable). Please sign up for one or more of our social media platforms to receive the most updated announcement information! You can find us on Facebook, twitter or sign up for our GCCC newsletter here.
Transportation and Parking
Annual races (e.g., Army Ten Miler, Marine Corps Marathon) and other local events may cause road closures and parking disruptions around GCCC. GCCC will make announcements as more information becomes available.
GCCC is located off the yellow and blue lines at the Pentagon City Metro Station. The church is 4 blocks away (about 10 minute walk). If you have any special needs, physical disabilities, or there are special circumstances where you may need to be picked up from the Pentagon City metro, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
DoubleTree Hotel has shuttle pick-ups and drop-offs every 30 minutes from the metro to the hotel. Please wait on the mall side on the 10 and 40 on the hour. For more information, please call DoubleTree Hotel at (703) 416-4100.
Families with newborns (under one years old), handicapped, as well as first-time visitors are welcome to make use of our complimentary parking garage vouchers. All others may request a $5 validated garage parking voucher. There is a limited amount, so please make sure you get your voucher before leaving service. Please use your original parking ticket to exit, then use the voucher as payment (or reduced payment). Please see an usher at the Welcome table for the voucher. If for some reason your parking pass does not work and you have to pay the full amount, please keep your receipt and bring it to the welcoming desk the following week to request a reimbursement for the amount paid.
There is free street parking along the perimeter of the hotel. All metered parking around the hotel is free on Sundays (e.g., S Eads St. S Fern St, 12th St, Army Navy Drive, etc.).
