Intercessory Prayer

Starting April 17th, 2013 we will have Intercessory Prayer!  Every Wednesday from 7-9 pm in Deaf Room (M-9).  We will begin with a time of praise and worship and then we will begin praying for each other, our church, the Deaf community, and the world!  Come help us move some mountains.

2 Chronicles 7:14 – 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my faceand turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Dr. JoAnn Smith coming for a visit



On Sunday, March 24th, Dr. JoAnn Smith from Valley Forge Christian College Deaf Ministries Program will be out guest speaker at our 10:45 am service.  She is spending the weekend with us, train our leaders in our effort to improve our church and its vision.  We will have a lunch (pizza provided, but bring snack to share) and watch a movie after the service.

The 9th annual Mid-Atlantic Deaf Men’s Retreat is coming this weekend.  While it’s too late to join now, prepare yourself for next year’s 10th annual Men’s Retreat.  Deaf men from Virginia to New England will be there.  Each year it has been held at Camp Hebron in Pennsylvania.  This year’s theme is “Deaf Men Can Roar!”.  What’s that mean?  You will have to come to find out!

Welcome Gallaudet Students!

Potomac Deaf Church gladly welcomes Gallaudet students!  We hope you will come visit and make our church your church home while away from home.  Please check out our pages for info on who we are, what we believe and teach, and how to get here.  We have members from many countries, and all services are in ASL. Our Pastors are Deaf.  We understand you.  Come worship with us!

Special Visitor!

On Sunday, May 27th we will have a special visit from our friends in Denmark.  Jan and Anne Zachariassen, leaders of the Deaf Christian Fellowship, will be here.  They are good friends with Pastors Lene and Scott.  We’re really looking forward to this visit and hope you  can be there to meet this awesome couple!  We will have potluck (pot-blessing) after the service so bring something to share.  Email us to find out what we need you to bring.

The Ultimate Victory!

We will begin a study of the book of Revelations on April 15th at 10:45 am in the Chapel.  This is an important study!  We will look at each part in detail and also see how other parts of the Bible relate to Revelations.  This is much more than just studying end time events.  Our goal is to “hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches.”

Rev. 1:3 – Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this propecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.

Schedule Change!

During our Annual Meeting last month it was decided to make some changes to our schedule to make Sunday School / Bible Study more of a priority and still keep a priority on Prayer.  The planned schedule beginning on April 15th is:

9:45 am – Prayer in Deaf Room
10:30 am – set up in Chapel
10:45 am – Bible Study*
11:30 am – 1145 am – break
11:45 am – Worship/ Sermon*

*These can be switched if necessary

We hope everyone will arrive for the Study of the Bible at 10:45 am.

Return to God!

Next Weekend Nov 28,2011 and November 29th, 2011. Students from Valley Forge Christian College Deaf Pastoral Studies program will be here to hold youth oriented services (age 30 or under – but all ages welcome).
