Open to Talk: Exploring the Person and Works of Jesus | 04.06.18 - 06.08.18

April 27th - June 8th, 2018

Open to Talk provides a warm and open space to discuss the big questions of life, and to explore the person at the heart of Christianity—Jesus Christ. It is designed for those who don't identify with the Christian faith and are open to learning more.

Dinner will be provided, each session will include a short talk, followed by peer-led discussion groups created to foster open dialogue, in which participants discuss the topic at hand, ask any question, or merely sit and listen.

  • Where: Portico Church Office (3240 Wilson Blvd, Suite 200, Arlington, 22201)
  • When: Fridays from 7-9pm, April 6th-June 8th (excluding May 18th)

Please register here to let us know if you will be attending.
If you have any additional questions please contact Sam Birk at samuel.birk@gmail.com.

Note: If Portico is your church home, please only attend if a) you don't consider yourself a Christian, b) you're new to following Christ and want to learn more, or c) you are bringing someone who doesn’t identify with the Christian faith. This is in order to make room for non-believers, and to encourage you to do this with someone!

Hello Mommas and Mommas-to-be,

PorticoMoms exists to encourage each other as we pursue Christ and fulfill our callings through His strength. Please join us for our April PorticoMoms Coffee Break on Friday, May 4th from 9:30-11:30am.

We will be discussing an article that will be e-mailed to you closer to the Coffee Break.

We will meet at the Sacchieri’s home in McLean (address will be emailed to confirmed registrants). We will provide snack for the children so please do not send any snack in with them. Also, newborns and young infants are free to stay with you and there will be quiet rooms upstairs where they can sleep. Note: We currently have one babysitter secured but we are still looking for a second one. Please let me know if you know of someone who would be interested in this paid babysitting opportunity.

If you are able, please feel free to bring a treat to share with the group.

We hope you can join us for this time of fellowship and encouragement.

FOUNDATIONS | 05.18.18 & 05.19.18

May 18th - May 19th, 2018


FOUNDATIONS is an introduction to the community, theology, and values of Portico Church Arlington. It’s a snapshot of what it means to be a member on mission with us. If you are new, FOUNDATIONS is a great place to connect with others.


How it works…FOUNDATIONS will take place over two days, beginning with a Friday evening session over dinner from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. The evening will be an opportunity to engage with others over good food and hear from our leaders about the vision, values, and mission of our church.

The Saturday session will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Portico Church Office in Clarendon (3240 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 200, Arlington, VA, 22201). The pastors and leaders of Portico will teach on how we live out the three identities we embody as disciples of Jesus: Worshippers, Family, and Missionaries. Attending both sessions serves as our pathway to membership. The Saturday session will include:

  • belonging to God: theology, beliefs and overview of the Gospel
  • belonging to each other: membership, community, service, and gifts
  • belonging on mission: local and global outreach

There will also be plenty of time for discussion. For the Saturday session, a cost of $10 (per person) is required for materials.

If you would like to attend the Friday session or both, please sign up here. Space is limited so register soon!
