Welcome to North Chevy Chase Christian Church!
We're glad you found us!
As an Opening and Affirming congregation, we welcome into full membership, participation, and leadership persons of every color and ethnicity, language, culture, nationality, age, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and expression, physical and mental ability, economic status, familial status, and spiritual background.
We also recognize that people find God in many ways, and we seek to support and affirm them in their spiritual journeys.
Our motto is "Connecting Faith With Community" and we seek to live as agents of healing and wholeness in a fragmented world. We hope you will worship, pray, and minister with us as we grow in God's grace together.

Welcome In! Capital Campaign Underway
In late 2019, the congregation approved a capital campaign to fund renovations to the kitchen and Harlow Hall, the replacement of flooring in the Sanctuary and Glass-way, and the installation of a new roof. In keeping with our motto of "Connecting Faith with Community" and our recent "Open and Affirming" statement, it is only appropriate that we designate this Capital Campaign our "Welcome In!" campaign as we make our facilities even more welcoming to our community! The January CHIMES included information about the renovations as well as how you can support the Welcome In! Capital Campaign.
Explore NCCCC's Labyrinth
The labyrinth is one of the oldest contemplative tools known to humankind. We invite you to use the labyrinth to awaken your spirituality, simplify your hectic life, integrate mind, body, and spirit, engage in self-reflection, and forge a connection with our community. The labyrinth is located on the west side of the Church, adjacent to the patio and Memorial Garden. The labyrinth was designed and completed by Jeremy Shide, Chevy Chase Scout Troop 255, as his Eagle Scout project. The beautiful boxwoods and benches surrounding the labyrinth were recently added by Foster Price as his Eagle Scout Project. We thank Jeremy, Foster, and Scout Troop 255 and its leaders for creating these wonderful additions to our grounds.
