When & Where


Sunday — 10:30 a.m.


1111 South Carolina Ave SE
Washington, DC 20003


What to Expect


  • During our time of worship, we sing several songs, offer prayers, and hear Scripture read.
  • Preaching at Pillar Church is expositional, meaning that it seeks to declare the point of a particular biblical passage.
  • Sermons usually last around 40 minutes and are packed with material for reflection. All preaching is centered on the greatness and kindness of God.


We encourage fellowship after the service and people tend to stick around to chat over coffee on the lower level.


  • The music we sing at Pillar Church is a blend of hymns and newer worship songs.
  • We seek to encourage congregational singing, which emphasizes the gathered body singing praise to God with one voice.
  • We believe the songs we sing teach our hearts about who God is and what He’s like, so we make an effort to choose songs with lyrics based on the truth of God’s Word.

Small Groups

We gather in small groups throughout the week in DC, Maryland, and Virginia.


What about my kids?

Our Kids Ministry will seek to provide fun, faith-nurturing activities that fit their needs and support family discipleship. Classes for kids from birth through age 5 run simultaneously with the sermon each Sunday morning.

Safety and Security

  • All of our Children’s Ministry Workers have a recent clear criminal background check on file with us.
  • We use a digital check in system with adhesive name tags that we stick directly to each child’s clothing that matches a code printed on a card given to the parent or guardian who dropped off the child.
  • We also have a two worker policy – meaning your kids are never left alone.



How long are your services?

  • Our services are just over an hour.
  • We usually sing four songs and the sermon lasts about 40 minutes.

Is parking difficult? 

  • There is plenty of street parking (always free on Sundays).
  • The Eastern Market Metro station is just five minutes away.

What kind of church is Pillar?

  • Pillar is a Christian church made up of individuals from various denominational and religious backgrounds.
  • Pillar is a part of a small family of churches situated near military installations around the world called the Praetorian Project.
  • We are also a part of the SBC of Virginia.
