We look forward to seeing how God will bring our community together as we gather on a weekly basis, build deeper relationships, and study what God’s word has to say about developing and empowering communities while addressing injustices as the people of God.

We are a community of people “learning together to love our neighbors as ourselves” in a Latino neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia.

As a faith-based Christian non-profit with a small staff and over 100 volunteers, we serve alongside more than 100 families and their children (1st-12th grades) each week through our community programs.
