ABOUT MCLEAN PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

McLean Presbyterian Church (MPC) is a vibrant, growing congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) located in northern Virginia, just outside of Washington D.C. Our vision is to glorify and enjoy God by making disciples who make a difference through grace-filled worship, community, and missions. God has grown our church by over 40% in the last several years, and we're continuing to grow with now over 2,000 members. In addition to this growth within our own walls, we oversee 2 church plants in the greater D.C. area. We currently hold 5 Sunday services each week (not including our church plants) with multiple worship leaders and teams made up of over 100 volunteer and paid musicians. We also have plans to launch a new multisite congregation in the spring of 2019. More information about MPC can be found at www.mcleanpres.org. 


WORSHIP AT MPC

We describe our worship music style as blended and intergenerational - using a combination of contemporary and classical instruments to accompany congregational singing of both traditional and modern hymns and songs. The worship ministry at MPC includes adult and children's choirs, worship teams, audio/visual teams, and deacon service teams (parking, greeters, ushers, and communion set up). Along with traditional hymns, our congregational music repertoire includes songs from Keith and Kristen Getty, Stuart Townend, Sovereign Grace Music, Indelible Grace, Enfield, Hillsong, Chris Tomlin, and others. See our Philosophy of Worship document for greater details.
