Because Jesus said, “Whoever welcomes a stranger welcomes me” (Matthew 25: 31-46), we welcome those who need a place to stay for awhile or who want to live in an intentional Christian community.
If you or someone you know needs sanctuary and refuge, please contact us. We are open to sharing our home with those who are trying to hide, trying to start over, or trying again. We are connected with DC127’s Safe Families for Children initiative and frequently host guests through Couchsurfing.
As a community, we share a common rhythm of prayer, meals, and work. We sit in silence every weekday in the morning, gather with other neighbors to pray on Sunday evenings, and then eat together at least three times during the week. All of us have some kind of work to contribute to the house needs, and then we commit to supporting the work of the community in tangible ways.
If you are interested in living in an intentional Christian community, we would love to talk to you. We are hoping that others who also feel the call to hospitality, creation, and retreat will join us. We can discuss different levels of membership in the community, including a couple-of-months stay as an intern or something with more longevity.
Depending on the amount of guests we have, we have the potential to offer up to three rooms for those seeking sanctuary and community. We do have a dog, Luna, who loves guests and is a ton of fun.
