Happening now at Tysons
Especially geared to anyone who is new to church and Christian faith, First Things offers an introduction to topics like how we communicate with God, what the Bible is really about, why churches do things like communion and baptism, and who the Holy Spirit is. The heart of the class is to let people to […]
Our Tysons service meets at Marshall High School located at 7731 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, VA. Sunday service begins at 10:30 am and is held in the auditorium, please use Door 13, 11, or 10 to enter the building.
Please stop by the welcome table and if you have children, the children’s registration table, both located in the lobby.
We also serve breakfast before service, so make sure you come before 10:15 am and fellowship with other church attenders!
What to Expect
We dress casually, so feel free to come as you are!
During our worship, we pray together, sing together, hear stories from people in the church community, speak Christian Scripture together, and hear a sermon based on that Scripture together. We have three goals in our worship:
- To encounter God’s Spirit
- To tell the story of God
- To be formed to think and love as God does
We invite you to participate from your heart, even if you’re new (or new again) to Jesus and the church, even if you’re not sure about some things about Jesus, even if you feel like there’s a right way to worship that you don’t know how to do. We invite you to sing with us, pray with us, and listen with us because God invites us all to these things.
We share the parking lot with Central Farmer Market. Please feel free to use the right side of the school for additional parking and enter the school through the side doors. Please park near Door 13, 11 or 10 as it leads to the Auditorium and look for the welcome banners.
The Tysons Corner metro is 1.5 miles away from Marshall High School and is not conducive to walking. If you need a ride, please contact email@example.com for more information.
Bus 28A from the Tysons Corner Station & Bus Bay E leaves the terminal every 30 minutes and will drop individuals off at a stop in front of Marshall High School after a 7-minute ride.
Kids & Nursery
We hope the following helps your family plan for your first visit to GCCC. For specific questions about God’s Garden, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you arrive, head to the God’s Garden check-in table. To ensure your child’s safety we check every child in the lobby and again in their classroom or small group. When the service is over, we only release children when they have been checked out by a parent. If this is your first time at GCCC, we will also ask you to fill out a New Family Card so we can get to know your family better.
Where does my child go after check-in?
Once your child is checked in, we will direct you to their classroom or older kids can worship with their parents until their groups are dismissed.
Chilren will meet their leaders in the lobby and walk with them to Large Group. Large Group is where we gather together in a big group and have fun worshiping Jesus, dancing, singing, exploring the Bible together, and building community.
After Large Group, we head to different tables in the cafeteria for Small Groups. In Small Groups, children have space to process the Biblical narrative together and explore age-appropriate ways to apply God’s Word. We understand children process what they learn through play so we build in time for crafts, games, and STEM.
What if my child needs me during the Service?
If your child needs you during the service, we will text you and ask you to come to their location. To ensure your child’s safety we will ask you to come and change their diaper if needed during the service. Our nursery has a changing area and our Beans class has it’s own bathroom. Nursing moms are welcome to nurse in the main auditorium or in the nursery, whichever is easiest for your family.
