Message from the Campaign Committee

The Capital Campaign has launched and we are excited to bring you news!  As of May 1, 2024 the campaign committee has met with over 55 families.  From these visits, 34 families have submitted pledges.  The pledge total, which includes a legacy pledge, currently stands at over $1,000,000!!

We are working to book visits with remaining households.  If we have missed you, or if you have been called but not visited, please contact us to arrange a visit and a conversation, even if you feel you cannot donate at this time.

If you are still considering your pledge, know that your donation over three years will allow us to invest in the renewal of our space over the next 10 to 15 years. It is exciting to imagine what we will be able to accomplish.

The campaign will enter a quieter phase over the summer, but visits continue and we will be planning a fun Fall phase to include your entire family. Can anyone say Chili Cookoff?? Bobbing for apples?? Car washes??

History

Nearly 50 years ago, in 1976, a small group of people saw the need to have a gospel-centered church in the western region of Fairfax County. Reston was in part picked because of its central location to so many communities.

In 1979, the congregation of RPC decided to purchase the Kidwell property at the corner of Hunter Mill and Sunset Hills for $165,000. With a few changes and updates through the years, this has been home for our growing church since then.

These visionaries faithfully laid a foundation we all benefit from today. Space to gather, space to worship, space to learn and grow, and space to serve.

Present Day

Our facility is in urgent need of attention. In addition, the cultural and spiritual ground around us is shifting under our feet. It’s important to note that Reston (and the surrounding area) has grown dramatically. Economic downturns, COVID, interest rates, and a transitional community have created unique challenges for us.

Beyond our walls lies a community of our neighbors. God calls us to reach out to everyone – serving others and inviting them to join in the story of God’s redemptive love in Jesus Christ. Our history is both an example and an inspiration of what we can achieve together in the future.

The time is now for us to renovate, refine, and reimagine how Reston Presbyterian Church can best meet these needs.
