Membership at BPC

You Are Welcome

At Burke Presbyterian Church, we want to extend a wide welcome and an opportunity of deep discipleship. If you are ready to become a member of this church family or if you’re simply curious, we encourage you to join us for one of our new members classes which are grounded in our mission statement: “Becoming Disciples through Sabbath, Study, and Service.”

During these sessions, we look at the meaning and purpose of sabbath, study and service, and how we live those out together at Burke Presbyterian Church.  We offer the class four times during the year in a variety of formats, hoping you find one that works within your schedule.

New Member Classes

Fall new member classes begin in October. We will gather Wednesday evenings Oct. 11-November 1. Share supper with us starting at 6:15 p.m., if you’re able, and the meetings begin at 7. Speak to one of the pastors or Elder Nancy Rosene ( to learn more. We so look forward to getting to know you!

Joining the Church

If you decide at the end of the class that you are ready to join our church family, you will meet with our session the following Sunday to affirm your trust in Jesus Christ and then be presented to the congregation the next weekend at the worship service of your choice.

Finding your place at BPC

We ask new members to complete a Time and Talent survey to share with us your interests and God-given gifts.  We will also take your picture and also ask for a brief bio so that we can better introduce you to your new family.  

Please visit our Saturday or Sunday worship services, contact a member of our staff or leadership with questions, or check out all that we have to offer by looking through this site. 

If you would like to receive the church newsletter (The New Leaf) or be included in email notices of special events at the church, please contact the church office.

To discuss membership at any time, contact the church office at or 703-764-0456.

Our church family welcomes you!
