Our Facility is The United Baptist Church Mission Center!
at 7100 Columbia Pike, Annandale, Virginia 22003-3106
Biblically, each church is a Mission Center—a facility in which the church (identified as each congregant) gathers to remember and celebrate the Biblical truth that each person is the church, moving among one another in daily life (as Jesus lived). A sense of cooperative community-building through love, service and compassion is felt here on our campus. Won't you explore our facility?
Are you a good neighbor or a volunteer? Do you participate in local service groups that are looking for a space to meet? Are you an entrepreneur with a small established business or a start-up that needs an affordable and safe office? Have you recently down sized and need a new office space with a conference room? We have short-term, temporary and longer-term spaces available.
Earlier congregants understood church as a facility and persons who met on Sundays and one weeknight. We recognize that the world needs "church" to be more than that today! Using our building so minimally would be a waste of our faith heritage. Since 2014, we intentionally share our legacy of faith and resources by connecting with like-minded yet diverse groups and organizations with a service paradigm. Those we encounter through daily living, playing, meeting up, working, shopping, serving communities or being together on campus are the same persons with whom we can discover or confront God. We invite you to imagine a "community center" filled with opportunities for all ages in Annandale, Virginia. What creativity and restoration might this vision prompt?
Weekend usage is a premium and heavily scheduled in advance, but we may have room
for your event or small conference. Some restrictions apply and certificates of insurance are required.
