congregation_rocky3Welcome
Founded in 1772, the Old Presbyterian Meeting House is an historic and vibrant congregation in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. We are an inclusive, justice-seeking congregation of more than 1,000 members. We see ourselves as a community of people who have been called by God to worship, study, and serve together as a visible sign of what God intends for all of humanity.

Whether you are a life-long Presbyterian or just beginning to explore the Christian faith, we encourage you to learn more about us. There may well be something of interest to you here. If you are looking for a new church home, we hope you will visit us soon!

Rocky Laha, Pastor

How do we celebrate Advent?  

There are many customs for celebrating Advent. One popular tradition is counting the days until Christmas using an Advent Calendar. Each day a window is opened with a special message. Children in our Sunday School will receive an Advent Calendar to use during this season. Another beautiful tradition is the lighting of the Advent wreath. 

In worship we mark the Sundays of Advent lighting a candle on the wreath each Sunday. Advent wreaths can be used at home, as well. Our children will be making a wreath for their families on the first Sunday of Advent. The purpose of the Advent wreath is to deepen our understanding of Christmas. Each week, as another candle is lit,  we are reminded that Jesus is coming as the light of the world. The wreath is a symbol: the circle and evergreens remind us of God’s un-ending love for God’s people.  

Join us during Advent to celebrate the season—beginning November 30—with worship on Sundays at 8:30 and 11 a.m., with Advent calendars and wreaths, with our Noonday Noel concerts on Wednesdays, all preaparing us for the joyous celebration of Christmas on December 24th.
