The Lord once told His disciples, “the Son of man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Matt. 20:28). Serving others is on important way we follow Jesus as our Lord. Here are a number of ways you can serve others at Anacostia River Church:
Saturday Prayer and Evangelism

Each Saturday morning, a team of members (and sometimes friends from other churches!) gather to pray for our neighborhood and to visit neighbors to pray and share the message of Jesus Christ with them. No special gifts or training needed. Come for the fellowship and see what the Lord does! Contact Jahill Richards (

Children’s Ministry

We want our children “from childhood to have been acquainted with the scripture, which are able to make them wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim. 3:15). So, through children’s ministry, the entire church family joins together to support parents in raising their children “in the discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Eph. 6:4). Find out how you can partner with us to teach the faith to our children by contacting Jhonna Turner (

Praise Team

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God” (Col. 3:16). Singing and playing music helps plant the word of God in the hearts of the church family. Play an instrument? Interested in singing? Contact Amos Evans (
