About Us

Living Faith Lutheran Church was founded in 1952 as Rockville, Maryland's first Lutheran congregation. We worshiped and served the community as Crusader Lutheran Church for the first 59 years of our journey. After much research, discussion and prayerful reflection, our congregation voted to choose a new name in 2010 -- and in 2011, we became Living Faith Lutheran Church.

 Today, we're a welcoming, community-focused & growing congregation within the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  The ELCA is the nation's fifth-largest Protestant denomination, with 4.5 million baptized members.

Living Faith Lutheran also serves as a hub of community services, hosting such diverse organizations as Alcoholics Anonymous & Al-Anon, Girl Scouts, and Meals-on-Wheels.

We have many service projects that benefit the Manna Food Center, which provides food to more than 2,000 neighbors every month; and Lutheran World Relief, which provides help to victims of natural disasters at home and abroad.

We've designed this web site to help you get to know Living Faith Lutheran a bit better, with detailed information on our history, mission and five core ministries, which provide great service opportunities to help people in our community and throughout the world.

You'll be able to find out more about our dynamic pastor, the Rev. Sandra Cox Shaw, and the powerful sermons she delivers.

And if you'd like to visit us on a Sunday morning, we'll help you prepare with directions, answers to your FAQs, a primer on Lutheran beliefs, downloadable brochures and more.
