About Us

If you are looking for a church home–a place where you can find peace and sanctuary, comfort and compassion, forgiveness and fellowship, and, yes, fun, too–then welcome to The Church of Our Redeemer (COR). The people of COR span many generations, from those who have been members for decades, to younger families with children who have recently moved to the Loudoun County, Western Fairfax County, Fauquier County, and Western Prince William County areas.

We believe that God has planted His Spirit in COR for a purpose:

  • to build our community and seek out opportunities to demonstrate the servant leadership and selfless love which is the heart of Christianity
  • to carry the Light of Christ into the world–to “go forth and preach the Gospel and use words when necessary”
  • to be a beacon to all people in search of spiritual home

Please join us on Sunday at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. for the Celebration of Holy Eucharist, and then join us in the Parish Hall for coffee hour. We look forward to welcoming you.
